I discovered that fructose is part of biochemical pathway that makes uric acid from purines

Linda, do you have any references for that?

Substituting water has made me feel better. Maybe it a psychosematic thing, who knows but I actually feel better.

Patrick, there’s lots of complicated theories about that. I think, if it makes you feel better, it’s a good thing. Switching to water can’t be a bad thing. It might be marginally healthier, and if you feel better, you’re winning the battle against gout 🙂
