Prednisone should not be taken by someone who is allergic to it or if there are fungal infections in the body. Before taking this medicine, one has to consult a doctor about his condition. Intake of prednisone is also not recommended for those who are pregnant or lactating. Prednisone either comes as a tablet, a liquid solution, or a concentrated solution to be taken by mouth. It is usually taken with food one to four times a day or as the doctor prescribes. It is very important to follow the prescription label of the drug carefully and take the medicine exactly as directed.
The third category of medications are those used during attacks of acute gout to decrease pain and inflammation. Both colchicine (Colcrys) and NSAIDs can be used during an acute gout attack to decrease inflammation and pain. Corticosteroids such as prednisone , methylprednisolone ( Medrol ), and prednisolone ( Orapred ), also can be used during an acute gouty flare. However, the total dose of steroids is generally limited due to potential side effects such as cataract formation and bone loss. Steroid medications are extremely helpful in treating gout flares in patients who are unable to take colchicine or NSAIDs.
I have to agree with Megan, HFLC can be good and no need to go overboard with the meat and animal fat. I also agree about fad diets. Low Fat high carb, … Fad since the 1970s? Ancel Keys, hero or villan?.John Yudkin? definitely a hero! Now people are fatter and sicker! Before that low carb was the tried and tested weight loss method. Spuds- Fattening! (what about Banting in the 1800s) Plenty of places where high fat low complex carbs and long life rule! too(sometimes the same places – depending on the reviewer). Whatever the diet, I think the best rules are: Real+unprocessed and low sugars (even from fruit). On hflc I have cut down my allopurinol dose a bit and lost a stone in weight (no gout attack). In my opinion HFLC is better for inflamation and health. I am a little unconvinced about going totally ketogenic though.
