A gout flare

Ah, but I was wrong.  Saturday night I got the first twinges of a gout flare. I immediately started all the blood-flushing agenda items and consulted the web – I thought the kale was the problem, but there is a body of research that maintains that fructose slows uric acid excretion, so that became the proximate cause. Anyway, now I have to fall back and rethink how to proceed with this.

Even total fasting can bring on gout.  When you read comments about gout articles, it’s clear that there are all kinds of things which cause it in some sufferers but don’t in others, and vice versa. There’s no money in treating it, so it gets no research.
