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.
