Following my introduction to Keith's GoutPal Story, I've started this series of posts looking back over the 15 years of GoutPal. Back in 2005, I was an Internet beginner and gout newbie.

Prednisone For Gout

In an earlier discussion about prednisone for gout, we had a lot of contributions, but no conclusions. I summarize the main points of the discussion below, but first let me introduce prednisone as one of many gout remedies for pain relief. Prednisone for Gout 2018 For the latest information, please see Prednisone for Gout. Also, the related reviews of relevant science at Prednisone and Gout Facts for Patients.
