Excellent point of view, Linda. The logic to break that cycle of inaction is clear:
1. Control gout pain. In 21st century gout pain after a few hours is a sure indication of a bad gout pain treatment plan.
2. Control uric acid. Those uric acid crystals are just as much a threat to mortality as obesity is, so start ASAP.
3. Get healthy. Slow steady weight loss and healthy exercise are much easier when you know you’ve beaten gout. With respect to Robert’s heritage, I lost over 3 stone once I recovered from my gout illness. For my American friends, that’s over 40 pounds. 🙂
