Thank you for the replys! I do think that the fructose has been a factor of my gout attacts. We travel a lot and bring our own food with us on the road. The only thing we snack on while driving is fruit. I am trying to follow the diets of Dr. John Mcdougall and Dr. Esselstyn of the Forks over Knives documentary. I try to keep my body alkaline by drinking hot lemon water every morning with a little baking soda in it. We always have apple cider vinegar with us and try to have a swig every day. I have read that weight loss can trigger attacts too. I don’t really want to a doctor and get my numbers because I am not going to take any prescription medicine. I believe let food be thy medicine.
