I have gout; can I still walk for exercise?

Yes: Of course. Gout does not prevent you from doing activities such as walking. However, if you have an acute flare-up with a red, swollen toe, for example, the pain may limit you - in that case, taking certain medications for gout and pain medications as recommended by your doctor should help.
