Correlation equals causation every time! Yup. That's why ambulances must cause accidents! They're always found at the scene!

I need a pizza shop to boycott forever, loudly online. Name, location...

This assertion must be true. I have not had an attack since I got back below 250 two weeks ago! Correlation equals causation every time!

Complete bull. If you read my "magnum opus" over on your other thread, it's clear that skinny alcoholics can totally have debilitating gout. Likewise, not everyone who develops metabolic syndrome is very fat. Having a pot belly is common, but you can be well under 200 and have one of those. (I'm married to a guy like that!)

It's another case of people thinking it's OK to criticize someone because they're fat - which of course means they're lazy, weak-willed, and slothful as well. *steam pours from her ears* Grrrrrrr.

I got fired from the pizzeria for having a gout attack on Dec 31st.Jan 1st., after 17 years working there. So, when my brother had a gout attack in his knee, we went to E.R. Wednesday night, because the clinic wouldn't take him till Tuesday, and I was afraid he would be fired by then.

Anyways we went in at 2:30 a.m. as my brother's pain got too much for him to sleep, and it was obvious he would not get better without medicine. He got the Colchicine, and is improved enough to hopefully work tonight, but is still limping.

The doctor told him to get below 250 lbs because he never saw a case of gout in any man under 250.. Well, I am 220. My brother is 340, and 5'10". I would be glad to see him weigh 250, but I was surprised at this statement. I know this is the night shift doc, but it was a b*llsh*t statement. I hope he was just giving a push in the right direction, but I worry he believes this.

What do you think?
