in regards to ‘other health issues’:

in my experience- any diuretic(s) be it medication or herbal (such as Gokshura a.k.a goat’s head or Caltrops) are terrible for gout sufferers because they increase the concentration of uric acid in the bloodstream.

Hydration is your friend, diuretics are not.

There are studies that show that coffee in moderation is helpful (i’m not sure why) but every time that I have used any diuretic I have immediately had gout symptoms……hope that helps.
