Great news on the uric acid test, Linda! Let’s hope it’s the start of much less pain for you. If you have other causes of joint pain, solving your gout won’t make that better. But overall, you are bound to feel better.

I think that’s a great reason for celebration. Completely in keeping with my new philosophy of ‘meat as a treat’ 🙂

As it sounds like you’re an under-excreter of uric acid, a glass or two of skim milk will probably counteract any increase from a small steak. (Disclaimer: that is a guess, not scientific analysis)
