Patrick, sounds like you are approaching this in a similar way to me. I tried allopurinol for 6 mos. couldn’t hack all the side effects it gave me, was worse than the gout. Right now am hesitant to try uloric but may eventually have to go there. Total vegetarian diet for close to 2 yrs now, no booze, helps a lot but large amounts of beans, chickpeas, lentils definitely affect me, and of course sugar is the worst. I just upped the amt of cherry juice to 3 plus cups a day spread out and since doing that it has helped immensely, I think before I wasn’t taking enough of it so am going to go this route for now, also have upped the dairy products as well.I am definitely better than when first came off the allopurinol.
