    My roommate has gout but he's 80 lbs overweight and used to drink 3-4 times a week. You can still drink beer (after the symptoms go away) but have do it in moderation and cut down on red meat/seafood as well.

    Yes, let's laugh at the fact that i have a disease.

    I expect that out of Zmz, but thought you were better than that.

    I guess all that non-rich Bayless Mexican cuisine in LA helps prevent gout?

    Getting gout seems like the most Jewish thing ever. I’ll ask +1.

    Isn't gout a form of arthritis? I'm going to have to side with chops and say that wouldn't classify as a disease.

    Is gout dependent on ethnicity? I always just thought it was due to bad diet

    Typical Haps arguing semantics. Who gives a fuck?

    And genetics are most definitely a factor (that doesn't make a Jewish thing, though).

    There's no semantics, gout is as much as disease as ED, and you'd get made fun of for that too.

    If you said you had uromysitisis or something along those lines, there would be no laughing.

    I like how chops pulls out uromysitisis as his example of a disease instead of say cancer or hepatitis

    I know a few people with gout. They all took it as a sign to stop eating garbage but keep drinking alcohol.

    You have a non life threatening "disease" and can't drink beer.

    :haha: is in order for sure.

    Something that is obviously self-inflicted like this doesn't really merit a pity party. Stop drinking so much and eating like shit and see what happens. :shrug:

    the key takeaway here is to always go to the haps to discuss personal issues and seek sympathy/advice.

    I always though you associated gout with the Jewish people cause they eat a lot of salty cured meats. It's why Bobby Hill got it; from eating at the Jewish deli all the time. I have had a touch of it before just get active. I got it after my surgery; I guess after they did the elbow release all the calcium built up just went to the foot. Took some advil and was a man about it. Haven't had a problem in a couple of years and I drink beer all the time.

    From what I’ve observed, I take shittier care of myself than IWMB but I’ve managed to avoid gout to this point. Maybe just a matter of time?

    If that occurs, I will gladly let you know.

    Although:
    Factors that increase your risk of developing kidney stones include:

    • Family or personal history. If someone in your family has kidney stones, you're more likely to develop stones, too. And if you've already had one or more kidney stones, you're at increased risk of developing another. I'm pretty clear here, no history.
    • Dehydration. Not drinking enough water each day can increase your risk of kidney stones. People who live in warm climates and those who sweat a lot may be at higher risk than others. I'm pretty clear here, I don't sweat much and drink plenty of water.
    • Certain diets. Eating a diet that's high in protein, sodium (salt) and sugar may increase your risk of some types of kidney stones. This is especially true with a high-sodium diet. Too much salt in your diet increases the amount of calcium your kidneys must filter and significantly increases your risk of kidney stones. No high-sodium diet. Maybe too much protein sometimes, but shit I don't really eat that much, so :shrug:
    • Being obese. High body mass index (BMI), large waist size and weight gain have been linked to an increased risk of kidney stones. LOL
    • Digestive diseases and surgery. Gastric bypass surgery, inflammatory bowel disease or chronic diarrhea can cause changes in the digestive process that affect your absorption of calcium and water, increasing the levels of stone-forming substances in your urine. LOL
    • Other medical conditions. Diseases and conditions that may increase your risk of kidney stones include renal tubular acidosis, cystinuria, hyperparathyroidism, certain medications and some urinary tract infections. LOL

    From what I'm reading it seems like light beers and pilsners are very low in purines, so they aren't much of a problem. So I should be fine with that, just down on my ale consumption.

    Still going to take an extended break to try to lose a few pounds.

    After the initial flare ups go away I don't think you need to really focus on what you drink, just how much total. Something like limiting getting drunk to only once a week. And on days where you might've just had 3 or 4 drinks after work, reduce it to 0 or 1.
