Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. gout is a metabolic illness and need management with pain killers and measures to keep uric acid in reference range with regular followup to a rheumatologist and keen eye on the symptoms and efforts to prevent complications. its manageable and not lethal if taken care of with compliance to medications and follow ups.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.

Take care
