In brief: Decrease uric acid

High uric acid levels in the blood cause gout.
The most effective treatment is to lower those levels. The previous doctor spelled out how we do that with drugs. It is desirable to avoid drugs, if possible. Go to this reference to learn how to lower uric acid without drugs. https://www.researchgate.net/post/How_can_a_patient_lower_uric_acid_level_in_his_blood_without_taking_any_drugs
