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.
