If acute gouty attack occurs, one should take a rest. Hiking is acceptable when the acute gouty attack has gone away.

thx doc, 仲想問步行對治痛風有冇幫助
Walking will not improve the condition of gout.
To prevent gouty attack, you should avoid eating too much internal organ of animals/drinking alcohol.
Gout is a metabolic disorder (due to excess purine). Exercise is a good thing for the body. However, it is not particularly useful to improve the condition of gout.
