Funny thing you mention this. The two medications bandied about by my Doc (indomethecin for acute attacks and allopurinol for chronic management) are the same ones my Dad was on about 30 years ago. Personally I am a huge believer in non-medical management and here are some things that, more or less, have worked for me:
1. Drinking lots of water. All day, every day. Oceans.
2. Cheeses are trigger foods for me. Particularly, foreign/expensive ones. I try and avoid, not that I can afford.
3. Beer seems somewhat of a trigger too - being a Sparker mandates a reduced intake anyway.
4. Cherry extract (GNC store tablets) seems to help some, but maybe I got sucked into the gimmick.
Really open to ideas on what to do and not to do. Thanks for getting things rolling out here again.
