tophi is v serious liao leh.
u first time only, how can have this...
I had pain years ago but didnít have the classic symptoms of a gout.
This time was more obvious and tophi eventually developed.
Today for the first time I experienced tophi pain.
It was excruciating constant pain.Gnashing teeth kind of pain. Itís a different level of pain I never experienced before.

I need to see a doctor and be put on lifetime medication. No choice. 1 month since ankle pain. Now tophi pain. I hope the tophi pain goes away. Donít know when I can walk normally again? Looks like I am having severe gout attacks.
canít eat tau kwa or tau pok? Is there any proven food that can cause immediate flare up on most people?

I eat a lot of tofu
I have done some research. Tofu is low purine.
Soy milk ok
Looks like tau kwa, tau pok ok

Avoid dried shiitake mushrooms
Avoid seaweed
Avoid dried soya bean

When you google, red meat flags up. My research shows white meat chicken is on the same level as red meat. Would be interesting to hear everyone experience?

Yesterday for dinner I had Norwegian smoked salmon as starter and chicken as main course. Under 1 hour, tophi started to flag up. By 9, never experienced such intensity of pain.
I had some left over smoked salmon tonight. Nothing happened. Maybe I was on tablet.

Has anyone had immediate flag up after consuming forbidden foods?

What about nuts? Are all nuts equally bad? Is it ok to eat a handful of nuts?

Cut out fructose and sugar. Also, get regular exercise.

Bro I’m an experienced gout sufferers who has done a lot of research on this topic.

I’m doubtful you are experiencing Tophi at such early stage because it takes a long time for tophi to form and cause disformity.
It can take 10 years for tophi to form, if gout is untreated. See the link below.

https://www.healthline.com/health/to...-tophi-develop

So here are my own tips that have proven effective.

1) Drink a lot of water each day. Minimum 3 liters or 10 cups of water.
Try to avoid fructose or sweetened drinks.
Green tea and coffee is okay but note that coffee is a diuretic and will make you lost water.

2) Avoid organ meats. Liver, intestines. Processed meats like smoked salmon, ham, Luncheon meat are bad!

3) Avoid drinking too much soup that has been boiled using meat (like bak kut teh) or ministrone soup (uses beef stock)

4) This is my best tip. Donate blood regularly.
You are doing a good deed and it helps to maintain your iron levels low, which in turn reduce your occurrence of gout.
As long as you are not on medication, you are allowed to donate.
Our blood is suitable to normal person because their bodies can filter off the excess purine easily.
In fact, may be beneficial because our blood is normally higher in iron.

I eat nuts / drink alcohol and yet can keep gout away because of this. Since regular donation, my gout has disappeared.

Any more questions can ask me.

I am digging further into gout. It is said an alkaline diet is good and adding more vegetables in your diet.

I believe sugar is the biggest culprit and fructose glucose corn syrup or refined sugar is commonly used in chocolates, biscuits and soda or fruit drinks. I donít drink soda drinks but I do like biscuits or chocolates when I needed a quick solution to my hunger. I know apples or banana would be a better alternative. Are biscuits/chocolates very damaging even in small daily accumulating consumption?
