Gout Support Group

Gout is a form of arthritis caused by the accumulation of uric acid crystals in joints. It is an intensely painful disease, which in most cases affects only one joint (monoarthritis), most commonly the big toe. The classic picture is of excruciating and sudden pain, swelling, redness, warmness and stiffness in the joint. Low-grade fever may also be present.

    As promised, I am reporting on my experience with Krystexxa. A new medicine developed for the treatment of chronic gout. My first infusion in the doctor's office was last Monday. The nurses and Dr. monitored me throughout the 2 hour infusion and for 2 hours afterwards to insure I did not develop any of the side-effects - which I didn't. The Dr. told me they now have to monitor ( through blood...

    Years back I worked with a guy, fit and trim but who got severe, debilitating gout.  I had asked him about his solution, and he said that he'd tried most of the 'fixes' but nothing worked.  We were both on verapamil and hydrochlorothiazide at the time.  Back then I was only starting to investigate side effects and all the doctors denied any correlation between meds and gout.  Now when you...

    Frustrated...

    I was told by my kidney Dr. my uric acid levels are leaving me susceptible to gout. He said due to eating too much meat. I looked it up and this does not include poultry? I also see you can get gout from too much corn syrup that is in processed foods? I have read different things on different websites so don't know what to believe. This is frustrating to me. I want to prevent this if possible....

    Hi All, I gave up drinking about 5 months ago. Two things happened: i) I got a huge craving for sugary foods and ii) my gout, which had virtually disappeared, returned with a vengeance. Mild, persistent and near continuous for months on end. I tell you, it nearly drove me back to drink!Then a couple of weeks ago, I saw some documentaries about low carbohydrate, high fat and high protein diets....

    I thought this was arthritis. Looking back now, it was probably mild gout. Surprised to learn there is a blood test to prove gout.

    Hi All, I came across this the other day and offer it to you all. I have no idea if it is accurate but there maybe some out there who, like me, still have no idea of what triggers their attacks. I get gout when I don't drink beer, drink beer, eat no red meat or chicken, don't eat red meat and chicken etc. etc.It's not fruit which triggers me but it might be one of you.Read about it here:...
