    Thanks for the info. I have not been to a gym and tried the professional elliptical trainers, so I guess I would not know if a store bought trainer was crap or not. I'm just trying to save the old knees.

    This jogging with gout topic is now closed.

    It covers several variations on gout and jogging, including:

    • can i run with gout?
    • can jogging reduce uric acid?
    • Is jogging bad for gout?

    Jogging is one form of exercise. Generally speaking exercise is good for gout, but it must be planned on an individual basis. You should get checked by a doctor before embarking on any exercise program. Jogging is particularly significant for knee and ankle stress. If those joints are already damaged by untreated excess uric acid, then you should substitute exercises that are unlikely to cause impact damage.

    I will move the relevant parts of the discussion to a new common questions section, as time allows. In the meantime, you can easily search for current discussions, or start a new discussion.

    You can find the search box at the top of every page, or at the foot of the right-hand sidebar. Even easier, please use the gout search page.

    Please read for more information.
