Frinklin Has The Gout

When one thinks of gout, you don't picture it being a disease that waylays modern folks in this century. Sort of like scurvy, dropsy, or even consumption. While these conditions still exist, in the Western World we just don't worry about them as they did in say, the 19th Century.

But when Frinklin began feeling stabbing pains in his right toe so painful that he was almost in tears, I suggested that we head to the doctor. He had felt something similar every 6 - 8 months that lasted for a few days, but never anywhere near this level of pain.

The doctor was busy and so we headed to Ugent Care. With a few careful prods to Frinklin's toe the doctor proclaimed, "Gout!" and sent us out the door. Frinklin was provided with a couple of prescriptions for anti-inflammation and reduction of uric acid as well as instructions on changes in diet.

I left with a smirk on my face. Why? Because one of the major causes of gout is eating too much red meat. It causes a build-up of purines in the system, which leads to too much uric acid, which causes gout; a swelling of the joints as a response to a deposit of uric acid crystals. And I've been telling my husband to eat less red meat for a very long time.

I'm not the type to lord it over someone when I'm right. But honey? I'm so right on this one.

Dude, Frinklin, lay off the venison. ;) My grandpa had gout and he was a butcher for many many years. I'm with Ensie--before he got it I thought it was something like scurvy.

Get better!

When the Yankees re-signed Alex Rodriguez in the fall of 2007, they envisioned the clean alternative to Barry Bonds the knight in shining armor who would erase the stain of steroids from the all-time home run record, and they would bask in the glory of it with their brand.

That cannot be true; if you can know that murder is “wrong” without God, then God does not need to exist for OM to exist. I think youve missed my point all along that I think that certain moral intuitions are felt across humanity. People have the intuition that torturing babies for fun (or whatever) is wrong. I have never claimed that they need to have read the Bible to believe this.

Thanks for your posting. Another issue is that being photographer consists of not only problem in capturing award-winning photographs but hardships in getting the best camera suited to your needs and most especially struggles in maintaining the caliber of your camera. This really is very true and visible for those photography enthusiasts that are into capturing the actual nature's captivating scenes -- the mountains, the actual forests, the particular wild or seas. Visiting these adventurous places surely requires a video camera that can meet the wild's tough setting.
