Questions for Gout Sufferers Audience

I wrote Questions for Gout Sufferers to help gout sufferers find the most relevant information on GoutPal. Because I cover every aspect of gout and uric acid on this website. So, different gout sufferers need different gout information. More importantly, it can be very distracting to read lots of information that is not relevant to your preferred style of gout treatment. However, I believe that all gout sufferers are individuals, so you might not need to choose a Gout Sufferer Type.

As you read in Introducing You And GoutPal, you have a choice of anonymous, casual, or structured help. If you prefer anonymous help, it’s important that you know which type of gout sufferer you are. But, if you want my personal help, you can skip all this. Just go straight to my gout forums. There, you are a person, not a type of gout sufferer. You can teach me about yourself and your gout. And, I will teach you your best way for you to solve your gout problems.
