Today I had a person tell me, " I work in health care and I know I don't have gout" . So they ignored my labs. They have gout. They are a medical biller. Just saying...

What labs did you run for that i have bern trying to tell my dr i have it but they wont run any tests? And why wouldnt the pt believe the tests? Have they never had a flare up?

Sorry to hear you are not validated. No one wants to have gout. It is not difficulty treat. Most labs have a standard rheumatology panel. It covers gout and other possibilities that cause painful joints.

As a reminder, for anyone that is having trouble getting pregnant. There is a specific bowl called "Fertility Bowl".

It can be painful for some women struggling with infertility which is the purpose of two separate audiences.
