BCAAs and gout:

Genetics: Please forgive my frankness. Diet is only a minor factor in determining your uric acid levels, and the health benefits of the vegan diet are less clear than the moral benefits. This is the truth despite everything you read online. You also need to have a competent, evidence-based physician to guide you with supplementing if you're going to continue as a vegan. ...Read more

Not uric acid: A high uric acid level isn't going to prevent you from eating or cause you to vomit.

You're on lexotinil, a benzodiazepine that interferes with learning and memory. Consider a 2nd physician's input. ...Read more
