I have suffered for over 25 years from gout. All the Doctors,all the meds, all the pain. I realize there are many causes for this condition, but after stopping taking over the counter vitamins last year, my symptoms have nearly disappeared. I go months without even a quiver, no toes,ankles,wrists, NO PAIN! My Chiropractor explained to me that most vitamin companies use a "natural source" for calcium: Coral. Since my sensetivity to shellfish is quite high,I stopped eat any shellfish years ago but have always taken vitamins. This has been my salvation.

I am glad you found out what was causing your gout and I always tell people find out what your problem is and drink more water and it will go away. On anther thread I posted I can not eat red meat and white bread, also my brother can not eat fish and or drink beer..If people would stop and figure out there problem and stop eating it most people would feel better and there attacks would not come back.

It dose not matter what you take until you find out what is causing the gout nothing will work, It will come back over and over. Find the problem and it will go away plain and simple..

The problem is the high levels of uric acid in the bloodstream. These can easily be controlled by specially formulated diets and meals which not only treat gout, but a few users have reported to lose weight too! More info here: http://bit.ly/cure-gout

Hi Pete, I have flareups of Gout and almost die from the pain. I am taking 200mg of Allopurinol, and Vicadin 500mg also. It takes the edge off a bit. The worst pain I have ever had. Be sure and get the uric acid test, and watch the uric levels, do a fasting test to get accurate results. Good luck, sorry I have no really good facts... but its like diabetes, there is none!
Google gout medicine too. Click menu for best gout products, see the chart and have dr pick one for you. Thats next on my preferences. Feel good. betty jo

Also a bit of medium heat from a heating pad helps to ease with the Vicadin too. Do not eat pinto beans it is a killer for gout. Got me 2 xs already. rest and stay off feet much as you can. Good luck

Please Pinto beans do not give you gout. I have been a vegetarian now for 6 years. For your information beans are good for you they give you protein that your body needs all beans do. Now in saying this you personally be allergic to Pinto beans.

Gout is caused from red meat and other things in the meat family most of the time, You can also get it if you drink to much beer and hard liquor. Some people get gout from bread products and from breakfast cereal because of the grain they use and the way they process the product.

They best way to get ride of the gout is go to your Doctor then find out what is causing it and then stop eating it and then drink a lot of water every day to flush your body out of these chemicals that are causing your pain and change to a better eating habit.

I used to have gout when I was over weight and that is anther factor also if you are over weight, most people that get gout are over weight. But anyway I have not had a gout attack since I lost 300 pounds and became a vegetarian and exercise at least 3 time a week.

Are you saying coral is in all vitamins including gel capsules? Why isn't it listed as an ingredient? This may be why I am getting gout? Please reply...I can't take this gout anymore?...John

I think gout is different in everybody. It's are own food allergy. Mine is ahi poke that gives me gout right a away mainly but for everything else it has to be a very high high sodium. But I've cut down my eating portions and TRIED to stay away from red flag foods. But with proper eating habits I am able to withstand gout. I still flare up but my attacks have cut down from what they use to be from years ago. Water and Staying Active is now big key factors in my life and I thank gout.

Also fish oil pills or any vitamins that will rebuild cartilage will be best to take. It helps to comfort your joints after the gout is gone.

Essential nutrition play an important role in reducing the symptoms of gout. food allergens such asairy, wheat (gluten), corn, preservatives, and food additives should be avoided.

Eat antioxidant foods, including fruits (such as blueberries, cherries, and tomatoes), and vegetables (such as squash and bell peppers).

Eat more high fiber foods, including oats, root vegetables (such as potatoes and yams), and psyllium seed.

Avoid refined foods, such as white breads, pastas, and sugar.

Eat fewer red meats and more lean meats, cold water fish, tofu (soy, if no allergy) or beans for protein.

Cut down on foods containing oxalate, such as spinach, rhubarb, beets, nuts, chocolate, black tea, wheat bran, strawberries, and beans.

Include foods rich in magnesium and low in calcium, such as barley, bran, corn, rye, oats, soy, brown rice, avocado, banana, and potato.

Gout is a serious medical disorder. So for getting some relief appropriate diet is very important.

Fish oil was one of my triggers for gout. I find many conflicting dos and donts regarding foods and vitamins. It's all trial and error for what triggers you.

Absolutely agree. Seems like my main trigger is MSG in food. Finally figured it out after about 10 painful years. As I got older, and started taking multi-vitamins, I painfully figured out they were causing gout. The vitamins were worse as they took awhile to build up and when I quit taking them, it took 3 - 4 weeks for my symptoms to go away, An MSG attack usually lasted a week to 10 days. Indomethicin used to give me some relief from MSG attacks, but did nothing for those brought on by vitamins. Everybody is different. Find out what causes your attacks!
