It seems to be a lot like type 2 - if you control it at the root cause rather than just throwing meds at it it seems to go somewhat dormant. Of course, it's really hard to tell anything from the information that's currently out there.

I was diagnosed a decade ago, at age 41. I am completely asymptomatic between flares. People are all different.

I am not sure what is worse, not knowing, or knowing the dangers of a disease. For me, with my diabetes, it made me focus when I started hearing about kidney dialysis,blindness, amputations etc.

I recently met a lady whose gout dislocated 2 toes, and she had to get a metal plate in her foot. I see pictures of tophuses/ tophi( sp?) not sure which form is correct to use, but either way..looks painful. I don't even know anyone who has reversed the effects, At 38 years of age, I wonder, what will happen in 10 years? Will I become crippled no matter what I do?

For me, the idea of dislocated toes is the worst I have heard of so far. What have you heard about? and do you think these are inevitable, that we can slow the process, but not stop it, or reverse it?
