Stress is a key factor contributing to gout attack
I am strongly believe that stress is a major contributor to gout attack.
I experience my first attack in 2009 and take every steps to prevent reoccurrences. In the last 18 months, less intense gout reoccurs almost monthly. I start to track activities, foods and drinks I consumed (stay away from any food that contain high purine, no red meat or alcohol). Also, check Uric acid level every three months with result always <4ml/DL.. I also tracking my metal health and definitively confirm that after 2 to 3 days of high stress, gout attack is eminent. In order to keep the gout from a full blown, immediately take 1 Indomethacine 50 mg two times a day. Going forward, I'm going to work on controlling the stress level. I hope to share the good news in a few months.
