Gout

is it time for a seasonal thread on this? if not ignore me :-)

got Gout again. it's my own fault. I know better what not to eat & drink. been stressed by many changes lately & I resort to bad, old eating habits. especially at large holiday gatherings w/ family & friends

anyways the left foot is very mad at me. got on steroids, then they doubled the steroids, so I'm hopeful. no meat or alcohol in over a week. drinking lots of lemon water now. funny thing is, it came up in my arch at the top & on the outside top of the foot. making the whole midsection of the foot inflamed. highly unusual

Im on a one year no beer (or any other EtOH) challenge. I started trying to eat 7 fruit and veg servings a day. No more flare ups have occurred, not even that slight pain in the big toe joint that I always had between flare ups. Ive also lost some weight and my systolic BP is down from 150 to 125.

Steroids are awful on your system. Its time to make some permanent changes. Check out this guy for some inspiration along with the OYNB Facebook page. https://www.youtube.com/c/HabitsUnplugged

Good luck!

thank you yes. I've been bragging to friends & relatives that I cured myself. hehe until I went off my diet. progress was slow so they doubled my steroids. finally turning around. liquor is easy for me to stay away from & I'm not a big beer fan. I can normally have meat in moderation & a tequila shot w/ beer on special occasions. but the past few weeks I went overboard on the meat & then added a big load of bear & wine for the recent holidays & it all overwhelmed my system

back to being good!
