Gout

Hi Doc

My father is suffering from GOUT every 3rd month or so....he visits the Doc and gets treatment but after 3 months or so it comes back.

Any one with any home remedies or medication for GOUT would be appreciated.

Thanks

Dear Jack
Gout is a metabolic disease caused by too much uric acid in the blood, often this is hereditary. One should use preventative medication ( Allopurinol ) and eat a diet low in purines. Acute gout can be treated with Colchisine.
