28 yrs. old and has had gout 2 yrs. His last test levels were at 6.0 but has been as high as 9.. He takes alipurinol daily 400mg. and when he has acute spells takes colcrys. The affected sites are mostly in his knees. It is because of his diet as he has always been a huge meat eater. Mostly chicken, lean pork and occassionaly beef. Eats a few different veggies, but it is impossible to make him eat less proteins and more veggies. He has reduced caffeine and high fructose corn syrup. Any helpful advice would be appreciated.
