As a 4 year gout sufferer whose Rheumatologist is reluctant to prescribe Allopurinal for, I am always looking to eliminate the next “major” flare up. Again, since I’m not on Allopurinal, I have had to do everything I can in my power to lower my UA on my own. I have changed my entire lifestyle, and like you Rhys, I’m almost leading a pseudo vegan lifestyle. I never eat red meat, I haven’t had a beer in over a month, I will occasionally have a cocktail (once a week), and veggies, yogurt, fruits and cherry juice are my new main staples in life.

If fish oil, or flax seed, or algae-based Omega-3, is proven to work I will be all over it. Anything to help lower my UA, I’m in. I will be paying close attention to this thread, just in case.
