I have gout too....if you stick to a low purien (not sure if I spelt that right) diet it will help with flare ups. avoid cured meats, like bacon and Jerky, especialy deli meats. avoid red meats and alcohol as well. I still have some of these things, in moderation, but I havent had any flare ups since I started limiting those sourses of protien. hope this helps! :)

Do u get the uric acid cleanse over the counter? Still waiting for alpurinol and steroids to kick in.

I got mine from my local health/herbal store. I dont think it made he gout go away any faster. I used it to get rid of any excess that might be left.

I had surgery 10 months ago, lost 110 lbs, am 25 lbs from my goal weight. I don't know if I have gout or not - never did before, but in the last couple of weeks I've gotten sudden horrible pain in my middle toe and the one next to my big toe... but not the big toe... to the point where I can not walk. It sometimes lasts 10 minutes, sometimes an hour. No swelling or redness but I can't imagine what else it would be.

My diet is mainly Protein - I eat meat (red mostly, some chicken, some pork), nuts, cheese and eggs.... my treat is watermelon... My goal is 60 -80 grams of protein a day - I also use GENEPRO - Protein Powder - 30 grams in one serving added to my coffee in the morning. I drink at least 60 ounces of Water a day, normally more...

Can you, do you get gout in different toes other than the big toe?

I've not yet gone to the doctor for it.. Thanks, Kim

I have been on the preop diet for about 3 weeks. I have had gout in the past and now with all the Protein I am having a flare up in the arch of my foot and I really am starting to ache all over. This is horrible. I heard cherries help ( fresh or dried).

Or tart cherry juice

It's possible to get gout in any joint but the most common is the big toe. I have never gotten it anywhere other than the big toe. I would get the occasional gout flareups but after surgery I kept getting them. Generally gout attacks don't last for 10 minutes. It usually peaks at night for hours and lingers for a couple days. There's usually swelling and redness. Also there is a burning sensation and can be very sensitive to touch. Even laying a bed sheet on my foot can be painful. My doctor ended up prescribing me a daily pill to reduce my uric acid. After I told her about my attacks she tested my uric acid level and it was extremely high.

Perhaps what I am experiencing is something different then... sometimes the pain seems to start in my foot directly behind those 2 toes but it usually involves those as well.I am needing to schedule my 1 year check up, I can always ask at that time... Thanks! Kim

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
