The exception participant had shorter and less severe attacks. Eight of the 13 did not have a gout attack during the four month study period, although as mentioned, they had all had at least two in the previous four months and, as noted above, the median was 1 a month, or one attack a fortnight, (every two weeks).



  • AFTER ONE YEAR About a year later, five of nine patients had no more gout attacks and three had just one attack.
  • So there was a further decrease in attack frequency overall.
  • One patient gained weight after the end of the study.

Uric acid levels normalised in 7 of 12 patients who had raised levels of uric acid (UA) before the study.

Note Especially that the Mean Uric Acid (UA) Fall Was

7mg/dL. In a couple of cases it fell by 2 mg/dL and by 5mg/dL respectively. Hyperuricemia, (excess uric acid), which may lead to gout, is reckoned to exist if the UA levels exceed 2 mg/dL (men), and 0 mg/dL (women). The usual UA target in gout treatment is 0 mg/dL (somewhat less in women) because at this level the MSU crystals, formed mainly from uric acid may dissolve. (It is the immune system's response to these crystals, which it regards as foreign bodies, which causes the pain and inflammation of gout). Writing on Gout Sufferers proved to be a gamble to us.
