Hi ! I know it's weigh in day today but I'm in a lot of pain due to gout in my right wrist. I've just been living on take aways and trying to cope with the acute pain I've been in.

Thanks for this ! Gout seems to be a very individual thing. I'm glad someone shed some light on purines because I can eat smoked mackerel etc without experiencing symptoms. I rarely buy it though due to the salt content and calories. I can eat any meat etc without symptoms also. I think some food additives in processed foods are quite unhealthy and can be a factor. If I stay with certain foods I can control it but it becomes depressing. I've found some causes by using exclusion diets and trying different combinations.
