Have any of you ever had gout or know of someone who did? What treatment (other than prescription medicine) is available? This is not a request for sources on the internet but your own personal experience. The research I have read is that fructose and sugar are the main culprits, along with alcohol - I don't drink but maybe one or two a year - also recommended is an NSAID such as ibuprofen, which I don't want to use only as a last resort. I do know that when I get an attack it happens to my right foot, third toe. It is so damn painful that I have to get off of it for a few minutes. The treatise I read recommended drinking a lot of water AND coffee, taking 1500mcg of Vitamin C daily (I take 2000) and a supplement called Cat's Claw. Experience and ideas only, no lectures please!
