I am a section hiker recently diagnosed with gout, a form of arthritis that results from too much protein that forms uric acid crytals which create joint swelling/pain/etc.

Doc prescribed allopurinol; daily dose to control uric acid levels to inhibit relapse.

What are ya'lls' thoughts on protein needs over a 2 week section hike vs the risk of relapse?

Anyone else out there dancing with gout but still hiking?

This may be misplaced in "General"; perhaps we need an "Old Foggies" forum?
