Tim, no, I'm not on anything. I take an OTC allergy medicine, and that's about it. My typical day/diet when I'm at home consists of:ATX: do you take diuretics? I recently started having attacks and although diet and weight surely play into it, I was on thiazide diuretics for years and I think that aggravated it.
Sip of water to down a pill
2-3 Cups of Coffee
Dannon Light Yogurt mixed with Fiber-One cereal
Turkey Sandwich on wheat (turkey, onions, lettuce, mustard)
Some fruit and carrots
Lean protein and veggies for dessert
2 glasses of red wine
Glass of water before bed
Clearly I wasn't getting enough water, but I don't think that alone is enough to cause a gout flare up, at least not according to my doctor.
