← Return to Gout meds to lower uric acid and chronic kidney disease

Comment receiving replies

I am Stage 3B and was having 3-5 gout episodes a year a few years back, even before I found out about my kidney issues. Allopurinol and colchicine were discussed but I decided to try and avoid them if I could. I did quite a bit of research and put together a protocol for myself that has worked great. My episodes now are about once a year for which I take prednisone immediately and also double my protocol. My episodes have a duration of just a few days and get nowhere near the incapacitation of episodes of years ago where I literally could not walk and used crutches or a scooter. I used to have to take time off work and haven't needed to do that at all. My doctors are very happy with the results. I hope it works for anyone that might try it.

Hello, @gladiator14. I can understand and agree with your reluctance to put more chemicals into your body. Your protocol is intriguing. How did you come up with those specifics?
Based upon anecdotal information that I’ve heard and read, I take Knudson’s Just Tart Cherry juice, frozen cherries which I microwave to thaw, Fage dark cherry yogurt, and cherries when in season. I don’t necessarily take these every day. I drink morning coffee, then water or other non-alcoholic and non-carbonated liquids all day long.
I read that gout may be caused by chronic kidney disease. I have heard differing medical opinions on whether gout can lead to kidney stones. There are also differing opinions on whether vegetable purines, as opposed to meat purines, should be avoided. Additionally, two recent studies question if there is even a connection between uric acid levels and gout.
I hope you find this helpful.
