What do you do for gout?

Gout treatment. There are medications to treat acute attacks of gout and medicines to keep it under long term control. Also, there are certain foods (red meat, shellfish, organ meats, nuts/seeds) and alcohol can cause attacks.
Flare or chronic? Flares can be managed with Colchicine and anti-inflammatory medicines. Reducing uric acid turnover with medications like Allopurinol is good for long-term control. A low-purine diet is also advisable. My site has more information on diets for diseases: http://whatsthedose.Com/diets.Html.
See a doctor. You need to see a doctor who can prescribe proper medication to relieve the symptoms and reoccurance of the gout.
