Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Sir, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that I think you mean that you have Gout . Few advises will be to reduce weight and avoid alcoholic drinks , meat, and seafood. Coffee consumption lowers risk of gout Sir , the advise on treatment will depend on your stage , if you are having acute attack then NSAIDs are the first-line treatment for gout and corticosteroids can be used . If single joint is there corticosteroid injection can be used . For chronic conditions allopurinol and febuxostat are used . We will not be able to give you a prescription over here as it is not allowed . You will need to consult a rheumatologist for that . Take care. Dr. Shruti
