I think it is great that you are tracking for those of us who suffer from Gout. I find that asparagus, mushrooms and spaghetti sauce, along with red meat are prime triggers for my gout. I was diagnosed 3 years ago and have long been tracking the flare-ups in my right toe and the osteoartritis all over. If I sit still for too long it becomes hard to move around. Drink water, lots of it! Any other ideas I will certainly mull over, I also take daily medication to help keep it at bay.
We're a pretty small group, but a few of us are regular posters. I'm the "research guru" - I don't actually have gout myself. I'm just here trying to keep the forum active for the folks who need info or support.
Take a look around at some of the more recent threads and comment if you feel like it. We'd love to know more about you!
