If there's one thing I've noticed about the subject of gout it's that it doesn't get a whole lot of press!
It's still a fairly uncommon complaint, though the number of sufferers is on the climb, sadly. Apparently since there are a couple of treatments that ease the pain, it seems like not much in the way of study is being done. Individuals are sometimes on their own trying to figure out what causes their gout and what triggers their flareups.
I thought we could put links here to any relevant research. This is not so much for anecdotal information like "I can eat red meat but shellfish gives me a problem" as it is for medical studies and such.
I'm starting us off with 2 VERY comprehensive guidelines from EULAR, the European League Against Rheumatism.
