I have gout now. I just lost 100 pounds since May eating high protein low carb. I went to Dr. Uric acid 7.2. Her lab 5.9 is cut off. I have joint pain all over. Feet,knees,elbows,hands and shoulder. Terrible stiffness and pain. On allopurinol, indocin and now prednisone. Starting second week. Its awful but getting better daily. I wish everyone well.
