GoutPal’s My Gout Suspended
I have suspended this service due to low levels of interest. However, if you feel a strong need for structured help with your gout, ask in the gout help forum. In the meantime, I am developing training courses for different aspects of gout management.
Introducing My Gout Audience
Introducing My Gout is suitable for all gout sufferers, and their carers. Because you can use it to help you and your Gout Mentor with all aspects of your gout. Remember, you need a Gout Mentor to get the best gout care. Also, if you choose GoutPal as your mentor, you must start your own My Gout service. So, please apply now on the form below.
However, GoutPal’s My Gout service will also help if you mentor yourself. Or if you choose a friend or healthcare professional to mentor you. Because easy access to personal gout facts helps you make the right decisions about treatment. Then, review of progress means your gout recovery is quicker. Finally, tracking outstanding issues means vital aspects of your gout treatment never get overlooked.

Improving Gout & Iron Guidelines is aimed at anyone who has any interest in the effects of iron on uric acid and gout.
The purpose of this article is to improve GoutPal’s gout & iron guidelines.
Current guidelines about iron on GoutPal.com are:
- Alternative Treatment For Gout – Blood Letting. The report on which this is based,
and a book (Facchini FS. The Iron Factor of Aging. Why do Americans age faster?), are reviewed it “Back to Bloodletting? Article in Journal of the American Geriatrics Society 52(9) · September 2004 DOI: 10.1111/j.1532-5415.2004.52425.x”. There is dietary advice for reducing available iron. But, it needs reviewing carefully with respect to gout. My article should probably be republished as “Can I donate blood with high uric acid” or similar.
- Gout and Iron Revisited. Note, this is based on “Mascitelli L, Pezzetta F, Goldstein MR. Comment on: Gout: an independent risk factor for all-cause and cardiovascular mortality. Rheumatology (Oxford). 2010 Jul;49(7):1421-2; author reply 1422. doi: 10.1093/rheumatology/keq118. Epub 2010 Apr 27″‘ which should be cited correctly.
