Gout sufferers might think that I do not like gout studies. If you have read some of my scathing comments about goutstudy.com, you might think I distrust all gout research.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
I am a firm believer in controlled, independent research into gouty arthritis, it’s treatment, and it’s consequences. Even the aforementioned goutstudy.com has some merit, but I distrust the way it is promoted as independent research when it is actually funded by the pharmaceutical industry.
There is a new study investigating the effects of gout and other forms of arthritis.
Please read Jennifer Voth’s introduction to her independent gout study, and consider joining it. Jennifer’s study is now closed – you can find information on it by searching for her name in the search box near the top of every page.
If we help gout researchers, we help ourselves.
