Gout & Cellulitis

In addition to gout, I also have cellulitis in my foot. On Wednesday, I revisited Dr. Whitney Reese, recommended by my wife, and she prescribed Cipro (500mg) for cellulitis, Naproxen (500mg) for gout, and Uloric (40mg) for after my flare to bring down my uric acid. So far, Cipro and Naproxen are working. My gout is now under control. I can walk almost back to normal.

I am still kind of strict with my diet. I cut red meat, seafood and eat mostly vegetables. I drink lots of water and cherry juice. I dropped five pounds in two weeks. The new diet seems like a good change for me. I am halfway through The Mindful Diet: How to Transform Your Relationship with Food for Lasting Weight Loss and Vibrant Health by Ruth Wolever, PhD, Beth Reardon, MS, RD, LDN, and Tania Hannan. It’s an informative read so far.
