It seems that there are very few online resources for finding gout information. Goutpal.com does a great job, but are there any other good resources out there that you've found helpful?

Why an earth would anyone go anywhere else? 😉
Seriously though, I find it best to judge sites by how well they reveal their sources – something I have not always been perfect at, but I am working on it.
One of the best sites is PubMed, which reports scientific research. The science is not always perfect, but at least there is factual data.
One word of warning though – many studies are statistical in nature, and statistics rarely consider the most important thing – you!
You are an individual, not an average of a selected study group.
Perhaps the best source of gout information is yourself.April 15, 2009 at 2:33 pm #4392zip2playParticipant
Here's a wonderful read with a great bibliograpical links pile to see the research.
And here's a LONG one (8 pages) with special ramifications for cardiovascular health and gout:April 16, 2009 at 10:08 am #4393Keith Taylor (GoutPal Admin)Participant
2 very good pages. The second one is easier to read if you choose the print layout : http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/472684_print
It is interesting to note that both these articles raise questions, which emphasizes just how much there is still to learn about gout.
Keep 'em coming.
