Hi and welcome, Murf! If you're here on Sparkpeople then you've already taken the first steps to leaving this behind.
In many cases (probably about 80% of the time) the same things that drive obesity, heart disease, type 2 and other ailments drive gout as well. It's why it's on the increase along with all those others and more. So by improving one area of your health and wellness you're likely to improve all of them!
When you are accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression. Love thy neighbor. No exceptions. Equal rights for others does not mean less rights for you. It's not pie.
I have had gout for a number of years and currently (for the past 6 Months) take daily medication to help prevent flareups. Glad to find this group to learn even more about this awful condition and hopefully avoid more flareups. Glad to be hear and meet you all. Murf
