cut out ANY animal meat & ANY alcohol (especially now while fighting an attack). eggs are OK. drink lots of water. sometimes add fresh squeezed lemon juice, sometimes add unfiltered apple cider vinegar

after you recover, experiment adding back some moderate alcohol & animal meat

if this is your first gout attack it will probably recover OK with pills. if you don't cut out (or reduce) meat & alcohol the attacks will come back & become worse with each attack

it took me years to discover this information & to get to a point where I can eat meat & drink alcohol w/o fear of an attack. I still continue the lemon juice & apple cider vinegar

good luck
