Rather than adjust his diet, just take the medication forever. The modern way.
I don't really see the problem. If the medication is available, why shouldn't you take it?
Well gout is caused by putting the wrong fuel in the car.
If I woke up, as Willo did, with crippling pain in my toe that meant I couldn't walk, I'd change the fuel. Look at everything I'm putting in my body, food and booze-wise,to avoid the gout triggers. Rather than just pop a pill for the rest of my life with god knows what long term side-effects.
Look at the cause of the problem, rather than put a sticking plaster on.
