    I’ve got quite a lot of gout shorts to catch up with, in the Helpdesk. But, I would rather split them into different topics for each gout group, if I can.

    So, I will just use this topic for short gout questions that do not give enough information to decide the best gout group.

    I welcome all gout questions, and feedback about GoutPal. But, if you do not give me information about yourself, I cannot give you good answers. Gout management has to be personal. There is no single treatment that suits every gout sufferer.

    So, please give your questions, and comments, enough personal information to allow me to answer you properly.

    I got gout 8 weeks ago and have had 4 flare ups. I can’t seem to lower my uric acid levels. My average levels are between 7.6-8.8 mg/dL.

      Hi Joe ( @joe-montorio-2 )

      When you say “I can’t seem to lower my uric acid levels”, what have you tried? ❓

      Your wording suggests a random approach. But effective gout control needs a proper plan. In your case, I think your first decision is the type of uric acid lowering therapy you prefer. So, do you prefer drugs, herbs, or diet? You can mix and match from all 3 types if you wish. But, most gout sufferers have a preference.

      To begin with, I suggest you take a look at GoutPal Plan for Gout Seekers. Then, start a plan, or I can help you start one.

      Let’s control your gout before it gets more serious.

    How do I deal with gout

    You get a uric acid test. Then arrange with your doctor how to make that safe. But it takes 6 months or more to get uric acid safe. So also arrange preventative and reactive pain relief for that time.

    I can help you every step of the way. So let’s get started. Tell me what your doctor says.

    New gout sufferer with a possible quick fix

    Hi
    I have had two attacks by my big toe and I think I had a knee attack after overexercising with my cycling.
    so had a blood test, came back raised uric acid levels. still to speak to Dr about that.

    anyway to the point.

    when I had early attacks on my toe I found a smoothie that helped.

    Pineapple
    Pure cherry juice (the expensive but!)
    Turmeric
    Ginger

    Blend up… drink loads… gout goes…simple
