These would be studies that you could ask your doctor to look over to see if he or she is in agreement with their (very in-depth) conclusions. Doctors have a million ailments to keep up on, and gout is probably low on the priority list for most of them!

"Conclusions

We have developed the first EULAR recommendations for the management of gout based on both clinical practice and the best available evidence. Twelve key recommendations have been evaluated; these include non‐pharmacological and pharmacological methods, management of the acute attack of gout, the use of long term urate lowering drug treatment, prophylaxis against acute attacks, and attention to comorbidity. A full review of this topic has also prompted nine key recommendations for the future research agenda. We trust that together with the accompanying propositions for diagnosis3 these recommendations for management will lift the profile of this eminently treatable arthropathy and act as a catalyst for discussion between all health professionals involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with gout."

Don't tell me what you believe; show me what you do and I will tell you what you actually believe.
