    I’ve suffered heart burns twice caused by gouts, after eating plenty of crabs, tofu and tempeh. The gouts disappeared after taking Allupurinol. I think I should be more careful in eating foods.

    I was taking 0.6milligram tablets of colchisine and within a day all symptoms were gone. I like tea but if I drink it often,I wind up later with a flare up. I didn’t eat venison before and now I love it as compared to chicken.
