For no other reason than to make me feel good, I’m collecting testimonials here.
Let me be clear. I’m not asking for them. I’m simply using this topic to post some kind words that I receive. So, it’s my totally selfish topic that will do absolutely nothing to help your gout.
I recommend you check out other discussions and gout facts. So, why not use the GoutPal search box to find something more relevant to you? There’s a search box top-right of every GoutPal page. Then, you can start a discussion about your gout.

[Feedback from Purine Rich Foods To Avoid With Gout]
Your presentation was clear and offered guidelines that were readily understood and should be helpful in making food choices.

Thank You for Is Very Low Purine Gout Diet Possible
I have just come off of a month long gout flare up. So painful at one point that I was having to crawl to the bathroom on those mornings.
I had thought I had gotten my triggers under control and was at a loss as to the cause. Thinking I had missed something, I went searching again only to find out I was not eating enough to prevent my losing weight. So it seems I was doing more damage than I was preventing. Weight loss is not a bad thing, I have always been heavy and thought weighing less was a good thing. Boy did that come back to bite me.
Reading this article was an eye opener to say the least. So my thanks to you.

Well Done (feedback from Uric Acid, Pain & Diclofenac).
This website contains factual unbiased analysis and is a pleasure to read and learn from. I especially appreciate how well you have reduced the pain driven emotional bias that often creeps into the opinions of gout patients.
Going through a multi-joint flare up currently but this site provides a calming influence that markedly reduces the psychological agitation.

From Cindy, High Uric Acid with high blood sugar:
Thank you Keith for your good heart & hard work in keeping the website! Truly I’ve learned a lot in treating my husband’s high uric acid & the non-stop gout flares since Oct. last year. We are happier now because we know at least this illness can be “managed”.

I’m not too sure if you’d like to convert this into a compliments thread but I think I speak for more then just myself here.
In any case I would like to share my utmost gratitude for all the help you have provided me in the forums. The education, the advice, the encouragement and the friendly way in which you delivered it all.
I think your doing a fantastic job helping the many many gout suffers, researchers and health care workers that visit this site daily.
Keep up the great work 🙂

Wow! Thanks, d_q 😀
Your kind thoughts are exactly the reward I crave for running GoutPal. That’s not to say that I constantly crave praise. But, it’s very satisfying to know that I’m helping gout sufferers.
However, I must return the compliment, and praise your bravery on behalf of thousands of gout sufferers that you help every day. Because, your questions help in two ways:
1. You step up and ask questions that thousands of gout sufferers want to know the answer to. But, most people are scared of asking questions in forums. Also, quite rightly, they want to keep their medical situation private. Then, they see you’ve braved the barriers, and got the information they also need.
2. Your questions often make me think about ways I can make my information better. Sometimes, this is new gout information that I need to publish. Often, it is improvements to current information. Either way, you prompt me to improve GoutPal.
Ultimately, I think it would get tedious if we all spent every day praising and congratulating each other. But an occasional ‘thank you’ reminds us all we are doing something worthwhile.
So thanks again d_q, and thanks to everyone who makes time to post to the gout forums.
