The Gout Facts

In the Gout Facts pages, I list common gout questions. This helps you:

  • Find answers quickly
  • Realize you are not alone
  • Learn to ask questions in a way that helps your gout quicker

Where possible, I give short answers, with links to more details. Some common questions cannot be answered, and so I give the reasons why. Usually it is because some facts are missing. For example, many common questions are about uric acid. Most of the answers rely on knowing facts about uric acid levels, i.e. current levels and relevant history. Without these facts, it is not possible to answer the question.

Is This a FAQ?

It is common for websites to have FAQ pages for Frequently Asked Questions. This is especially true of gout forums, where to save time, people are referred to the FAQ.

GoutPal is not like that. Whilst there is a gout forum, I recognize that gout is a very individual disease. Some aspects are common, but every gout sufferer has a different set of symptoms, causes, tolerances, and treatment options. I include these gout facts, not to stop you asking questions, but to encourage you to ask the right questions.

For example, many questions concern food items. People ask if a food is good or bad for gout. That is impossible to answer without personal facts about you. Any single food is just part of a diet. It is your total daily and weekly food intake that is important, not just a single food item. Therefore to ask about a single food, you have to include facts about your total diet. Without this, you cannot get a personal answer that helps your gout.

How Do I use these Gout Facts Pages?

Simply look in the alphabetical list for the important words in your question. Do not worry if you cannot find a relevant question – simply ask in the gout forum. Try to give as many facts as you can, and that will get you the best answers.
