He was aware that I had gone through a similar experience a couple of years back and hence wanted to know how I felt nowadays. I had stopped my medication a long time ago and had stuck to a strict diet regimen, exercise and drinking lots of water. Very rarely do I have those joint pains.
I feel that it has a lot to do with diet and exercise which ultimately leads to weight loss. Uric acid is bad since it’s not only painful on the joints but also leads to kidney stones and other complications.
Found a good link on Uric acid and gout which I shared with my friend and hopefully he will be fine again soon.
