Yeah, this thread is worth keeping alive. I'm about to go into doctor and I've had a severe gout attack for a few days now. My left foot is totally nonfunctional. I've substituted Soylent because it's been really beneficial for my stomach inflammatory issues. Very easy to digest.
I can't walk without crutches for the last couple days. I'm 34. I also messed up my feet in the Marines, and it doesn't seem unrelated; my doctors agree. I should see my rheumatologist about this. I've also been diagnosed with fibromyalgia (party!) but I've been struck with gout attacks this severe for the first time in my life only a couple times before.
As I was lying here thinking about when the attacks this severe began, I began to ask myself: what have I introduced to my diet that's new that I can remove and reintroduce in controlled isolation? Lightbulb: Soylent. I don't eat anything new, but I actually eat less bad stuff and drink less bad stuff. The only thing new is Soylent.
I'm gonna remove it from my diet 100% for a while and then reintroduce it controlled manner to attempt to relatively isolate for its effects.
