For once I'm asking for your help for someone else - not myself! :shock:
My mother-in-law has arthritis, (OA I think) and is diabetic & has a heart condition.
If that list wasn't enough, She has recently been experiencing excruciating pain in her feet which has been making any walking at all very painful. The doctor has decided (having taken loads of blood tests yesterday) that it is gout ......... but they can't give her the 'usual' gout treatment because she takes warfarin.
The only help they have given is to take regular paracetamol (which she is reluctant to do, but will give a go) but there was no advice about diet other than to avoid red meat and red wine (she's tea-total !)
I have downloaded the AC leaflet about Gout for her, which has some good suggestions in. but just wondered whether you could suggest any other dietary advice or management tips, or where she could go for more detailed advice.
Unfortunately she has to fight hard to get a GP to visit, and is very unlikely to be referred to a dietician etc (and may well not go anyway :oops: :oops: ) as gettint out and about for her is very hard.
thanks a lot for any advice.
