In brief: 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.
