My father and brother have Gout. I have Celiac. I don't know. My family are non believers about Celiac and will not be tested.

idk, but it CAN be common for someone to have Celiac & Type 1 Diabetes..and gout can develop from diabetes... in Europe they already test for both if one is suspected.. and i think they're starting to do that here- maybe just for people dx with Diabetes 1.

???

From what I have read and heard, gout is not an autoimmune condition. It is caused by the build-up of uric acid in joints and can be extremely painful (I know, I have had it). It is common in people who take diuretic medications. I have never heard of any relationship to celiac disease.

I realize this is a 2 year old thread, but I figure adding to it expands the knowledgebase.

In retrospect, I had my first incidence of Gout at a very similar time as I know my body began changing from undiagnosed Celiac.

That would be 1996. I had an episode of gout, and had no idea what it was - just felt like a broken toe. Lasted a couple of weeks, and went away (only to return again every so often with very little understanding of trigger). I know they are different diseases, with different make-up.

At about that same time, perhaps a year or two before, I had begun gaining weight and suffering constipation. It would take incredible effort just to maintain my weight. If I was doing an active exercise regimen I would need a huge amount of caloric intake to maintain the energy level just to run a few miles a day.
