I’m 43 and I have recently been diagnosed with gout in my big toe by my GP. My doctor has been great, really understanding and has told me some facts and figures about gout. But I feel like I still don?t really understand what gout is, how I have it, and what I can do to get rid of it? He mentioned that some foods and drinks will aggravate my condition but I?m concerned that he didn?t really tell me which ones! Please could you give me some advice?
A good question for the holiday season. Look at our article on gout on this site. Unfortunately, it may cause you to temper the festivities– at least as far as the food and drink.
