Welcome, Gail. Take a look around the boards and as Rebbie says, ask away. There's much more to managing gout successfully than avoiding meat and alcohol.

As for crazy questions, we've heard and and asked a lot of them!

So what about that black bean broth.....?

Hi Gail and welcome to the forum. I am also on the "Why" track. I am trying to eliminate just about everything that has been brought up to me as usual causes- obesity , alcohol, red meat and shellfish. Also I am taking allipurinol. Some combination of all of this has kept it at bay for the last 6 weeks. I plan on continuing this plan until I get to my goal weight. Then I may try reintroducing the foods to see if they are the offenders. That will still be awhile since I still have almost 50lbs to lose. Check out the old posts and Joe's recent ones.

Don't be afraid to ask questions - no matter how crazy they may sound. I may even tell you my disgusting black bean broth cure (NOT) story one of these days.

I'm in my own little world, but it's ok. They know me here.
