Paging through the New York Times a couple of weeks ago, I spotted the obituary for Tsai-Fan Yu, the physician who developed effective treatments for gout, including allopurinol and colchicine.
I take allopurinol every day, topping up with colchicine when I feel gouty, so I owe her a great debt of gratitude.
I blogged before about my gout. (Indeed, this is why I put up the mega repost yesterday of my old EraBlog posts, to make my gout post available before writing this one.)
Nothing has changed, for better or for worse, regarding my gout. I take allopurinol every day and expect to do so for the rest of my life, unless …continue.
