Yesterday my mother-in-law told me that her mom had to have a toe amputated because of gout, and thanks to you guys I knew exactly what she was talking about.

Also, growing up, I always associated gout with King Henry VIII because he was debilitated by gout in his later hears and had to be carried around.

This was a great, episode, thanks. A friend of my parents had gout a couple years ago, and it was nice to understand what it was. I had thought it was one of those diseases that no one gets anymore. Like pleurisy (which I've gotten twice).

Not episode specific, but this comic pretty well sums up the oft-discussed "heroic age of medicine..."
