In this section I am slowly adding gout letters written to Gout Aware. If you want to add to this page please send me a similar letter that Rosemary has sent below.
Dear Peter, in previous contact with you, I failed to add that Sleep Apnoea and fatty liver connects up too. In fact more and more offshoots to Gout seem to connect to Metabolic Syndrome Psoriasis is one that comes to mind. We seem to lack the enzyme Uricase that breaks down proteins properly. One could conclude that there is a strong genetic factor. I DO hope that more people get to the bottom of their gout. Just wish the medical profession would start to look at underlying causes instead of treating symptoms of one of the branches of this dis-ease. Cutting sugars (corn syrup and other sugar replacements in processed foods) out is vital and right down on the carbs. From experiments on myself yeast is a real "no no" too. Guess this might be why beers are so lethal for gout suffers and I don't drink alcohol but had yeast products >
> In the future when Doctor's include nutrition in their training human beings will benefit beyond our current comprehension, but first they have to drop the very outdated and proven incorrect theory that the mind has no effect on the body. Rene Descartes has much to answer for in this respect and science has come a long way since the outdated Newtonian theory which the medical schools still insist on teaching. >
> I will continue to research and experiment upon myself because I am determined to crack the gout code and a lot of other ailments that accompany it. >
> Kind regards >

Hi peter i just read your story, online. Im 44 i got my first attack of gout somewhat. 2 years ago. First attack was in the right foot. On the ball where the big toe is. I was resorted to crawling around like an infant. Until the pain subsided? Then another attack same place months later. Then nothing for 12months. Then i got it in my left big toe, i had to take time off work because of this dibilitating disease. I couldn;t wear any type of shoe. Along with the sleep deprivation that goes with all of this. Off to the docs for some more medication. LEN GOUT! It went away since then. I dont even have the ocassional beer or wine. I have changed my diet, i dont eat much red meat. I have lost 8 kgs. In the last three weeks gone from 96kgs to 88kgs. Today the gout fairy has come back to visit me in my right foot?????. Time to take indomethacin... Have you kept your gouty curse under control? If so please give me some good ideas cheers Regards Aaron
