Gout and kidney function should be the concern when one is struggling with gout but unfortunately it’s not.

Typically everyone you talk to is completely focused on uric acid as the cause of gout. Main stream media draws most people toward what foods and drinks cause high uric acid levels.

More exploration about gout and kidney function uncovers that the kidneys are so over-worked, they can’t get rid of all the different types of acid waste they have to process. This includes the excess of uric acid. The purpose of this post is to shed more light on how gout and kidney function are connected.

Good day Bert,

First and foremost, I am a big follower of the gout killer program. I cannot say I know all about it, but in general it has been life changing for me. I do greatly appreciated coming across the program.

I do have one question though in particular prior to seeking additional information from my herbal health practitioner that perhaps you have the answer for.

During a past gout attack (my second in my life) which prompted me to seek your experience I followed the special formula and within hours, pain gone, redness less, though redness continued for 2-3 days following and stiffness was ongoing.

Air, Breathing, Water and for me drinking has been all resolved. A great diet being followed and on the way to being in the best shape of my life.


I do know we have a one on one still out there and look forward to having that at some point bud.

More About Gout And Kidney Function

Historically, gout was believed to be related to decadent living. There was actually a different relationship between gout and what was going on with the kidneys. In old time England, folks had plenty of access to many wines and ports that were vinted in lead vessels. Lead poisoning is an important piece of the puzzle in regards to gout and kidney function and why it became know as the Disease of Kings.

This is your crash course on how your excretory system and kidneys work:

How Does Lead Relate To Gout And Kidney Function?

For the most part this video is valuable in explaining the common misconception that red meat, shellfish and alcohol are what causes gout. While that can be a contributing factor, poor kidney function is the real culprit.

Because there are drugs that interrupt uric acid production, western medicine seeks to thoroughly distract the masses with the food and alcohol theory so they can profit from the sale of more drugs.

However, the majority of people with gout have it because of poor kidney function. Inhibiting the production of uric acid is one way to let the kidneys handle the overall acidic condition of the body.

Improving the health of the cells and raising the pH up into a higher level of alkaline is a much more holistic and long term approach of preventing gout and maintaining optimal health. To accomplish this starts with correcting the relationship between gout and kidney function.


  Bottom-line:  Lead poisoning is a big factor in gout and kidney function.


Bert Middleton

“I know your pain. Let me help you kill your gout for good!  And teach you to advocate for yourself and take ownership of your gout recovery, by showing you how to live the gout-free lifestyle.” Two decades ago, Bert Middleton found himself diagnosed with gout. Like 8.3 million other people in the United States (approximately 4% of the population), he struggled helplessly with the physical, emotional, social, and financial impact that gout left unchecked can have on your life. Prescription drugs were of limited help… And the terrible pain of regular gout attacks left him unable to enjoy even the simplest daily pleasures. His marriage was suffering. His finances were spiraling due to the impact gout had on his ability to work. And maintaining a social life was often nearly impossible. Tophi surgeries left him in terrible pain.  And he found himself depressed … and angry … that gout was stealing years of his life.

Until one day, after hundreds of hours of research and self-experimentation, Bert finally had a breakthrough and created a blueprint for a way of living that would prove to be “the answer” to living gout-free for nearly a decade now. Today, Bert and his “Gout Wife” Sharon devote their evenings and weekends to educating other gout sufferers on how to live the gout-free lifestyle. Showing others his 911 Emergency Response Gout Recovery Plan for getting PAINFUL gout attacks under control in as little as 4 hours. And then, how to make daily choices that keep gout under control for GOOD! So you can finally start LIVING again!
