In brief: Uric acid control
To control gout long term you need to lower the blood uric acid so you no longer form uratey crystals that precipitate in th4e tissues and joints and cause the acute gout attacks.
Medications like benmid, allopurinol, uloric, Krystexxa (pegloticase) are all used in appropriate setting and need to be carefullymonitored for safety. These programs are very successful in keeping you symptom free.
