Our expert says:
I sincerely doubt that his symptoms are due to gout. Gout usually attacks one joint at a time and will definately not be symmetrical, affecting ankles, knees, finger joints etc. It is possible that he is suffering from arthritis and he will have to consult a doctor for blood tests and x-rays. Arthritis can be associated with fatigue. The doctor will also have to screen for diabetes, hypothyroidism, electrolyte disturbance, vitamin B deficiency etc. His malaise can have multiple causes but it will be best to address the possible arthritis and then focus on a better diet and exercise regime. All the expensive supplements will not be necessary if he follows a well balanced diet.
