Customer Question

I have gout and have been taking Uloric for the past year or so. I have not had an out-break for a long time. However, two days ago I picked a Multi Vitamin for men and it is called Living Green Liquid-Gel Multi made by Irwin Naturals. I was just looking for a multi-vitamin that I should start taking not knowing for sure which one. Anyway, woke up in the middle of the night with my big toe throbbing knowing what it was. Today in pain with gout and have not eaten shell fish, red meat, no beer, and no red wine in a while. Can someone research this multi vitamin and see if there is something in it that could have given me gout?
