Which came first? My guess is the MS, followed by the gout? The study that showed the relationship between MS and Gout did have some crossover, just very very small percentage wise.lovebug wrote:Well folks I definitely have both problems. MS and Gout!
My view (as I have not seen any research indicating why uric acid is low in MS) is that uric acid is consumed by the effects of the body's reaction to the disease; and hence its low. I am not saying that taking other supplements will not increase uric acid.CaveMan wrote:So although there is a strong inverse correlation between gout and MS, there are still exceptions, and High Oxalic intake may still induce gout like symptoms, this then suggests, as JL is indicating, that the Uric Acid levels are a symptomatic effect of deeper underlying deficiencies, i.e. Zinc et al.
We are all different. In my case.jimmylegs wrote:transferring that logic to other scenarios, we could assert that not having seen research indicating why bones are deformed in rickets, that vitamin d3 is therefore low in rickets because the body uses more in reaction to the disease.
fact 1: uric acid is low in ms.
fact 2: zinc is low in ms.
fact 3: low zinc means low uric acid.
to me it's just Occam's razor, and connecting the dots.
