      Low Purine Range

      There is no official definition of low purine. But I choose to split the ranges into: 1. Very Low Purine Foods (below 50 mg per 100 g) 2. Low Purine Foods (50 to 100 mg per 100 g)

      As described in the accompanying Purine Ranges Page Note. However, for these studies, I have shown values of mg per kg. Therefore, range values should be adjusted accordingly.

    5. Purine Ranges

      There is no official definition of purine ranges. So different studies might choose different ranges. However, I have standardized on five ranges: 1. Very Low Purine Foods (below 50 mg per 100 g) 2. Low Purine Foods (50 to 100 mg per 100 g) 3. Moderate Purine Foods (100 to 200 mg per 100 g) 4. High Purine Foods (200 to 300 mg per 100 g) 5. Very High Purine Foods (over 300 mg per 100 g)

    1. concerns about gout and itching

      For example, does acupuncture help with itchy gout?

      During the discussion that prompted this page, we mentioned acupuncture. Specifically, an acupuncture practitioner noted that acupuncture relieves gout itching. So this is a potential research area. But as I have no acupuncture experience, I need questions, experiences, and opinions from you about acupuncture and gout itch.

      Also, there is one reference to a study in the Progress Notes if anyone cares to join me on a research project. Min, Seorim, Koh-Woon Kim, Won-Mo Jung, Min-Jung Lee, Yu-Kang Kim, Younbyoung Chae, Hyangsook Lee, and Hi-Joon Park.

    1. I have a question about weight gain — is this something that is possible due to this med? I am overweight to begin with, but I have not significantly altered my already healthy and gout-avoidant diet, and seem to notice a gain of several pounds.

      For more details, see Does Allopurinol Cause Weight Gain?

    2. Since starting allopurinol last year I have gained a stone (UK measurement = 14 lbs) within that time and I’ve not changed my eating habits.

    1. Dairy

      Dairy Foods Group Nutrition

      The third guideline, with respect to dairy foods group, is: <q>Focus on meeting food group needs with nutrient-dense foods and beverages, and stay within calorie limits. […] The core elements that make up a healthy dietary pattern include: […] Dairy, including fat-free or low-fat milk, yogurt, and cheese, and/or lactose-free versions and fortified soy beverages and yogurt as alternatives.</q>

      Dairy Foods

      The DGA defines dairy foods as: <q>All fluid, dry, or evaporated milk, including lactose-free and lactose-reduced products and fortified soy beverages (soy milk), buttermilk, yogurt, kefir, frozen yogurt, dairy desserts, and cheeses (e.g., brie, camembert, cheddar, cottage cheese, colby, edam, feta, fontina, goat, gouda, gruyere, limburger, Mexican cheeses [queso anejo, queso asadero, queso chihuahua], monterey, mozzarella, muenster, parmesan, provolone, ricotta, and Swiss). Most choices should be fat-free or low-fat. Cream, sour cream, and cream cheese are not included due to their low calcium content.</q> So the foods included in the dairy group are not straightforward. Because they do not exactly match traditional views of dairy produce. Or food and drink we might expect to see in the supermarket dairy aisles. But this should be made clearer as you read my detailed nutrition pages for individual dairy foods.

    1. Excel Spreadsheet Permissions on Android

    1. uric acid arthritis

      In fact, a prominent gout rheumatologist, Prof. L. Stamp, writes <q cite="https://www.akohiringa.co.nz/sites/default/files/public/2022-02/Professor%20Lisa%20Stamp%20slides.pdf">Gout is form of arthritis caused by the immune response to monosodium urate crystals deposited in and around joints – could be called uric acid arthritis</q>

    1. Related Topics

      Uric Acid Arthritis Leading gout rheumatologists are starting to understand how changing the name of gout might promote better understanding and treatment. So some are suggesting a name change from gout to urate crystal arthritis.

      Personally, I prefer uric acid arthritis. Which I'm currently rewriting to reflect the latest research.

    1. Historic Names for Gout

      New page for this. Referencing research reviews for those terms that remain current. With a Other Historic Gout Names section for obsolete gout names.

    1. Swimming cures gout

      My most immediate problem is that this page is so badly formatted that search engines don't recognize the dateModified. However, the topic remains valid despite the fairly low interest in swimming and gout. Because: a) It raises several interesting questions about the mechanisms for this "cure". b) There is new uric acid research relating to swimming. Also the wider subject of gout and exercise.

      So my plan is: 1. <s>Quick fix to this page. Hopefully, time will allow me to correct usernames by referencing the archive</s> 2. Highlight the concerns here as notes. 3. Publish a gout and swimming research review. 4. Investigate and review exercise 5. Create a new hub page for exercise 6. Add a page or section for is swimming good for gout 7. Delete and redirect this page

    1. how you will know if your plan is failing

      A common failure point for uric acid plans is intolerable adverse events. Which are side effects that prevent you from continuing with your choice of uric acid medication. In which case, you have to choose a different uric acid medicine. Or you might have to pick a different approach. Such as Dietary Patterns or Complementary and Integrative Gout Therapies.

      In all cases, you can minimize adverse events with good planning. So now is the time for preparing for measuring side effects. Starting with baseline kidney function and liver function tests. Also, be sure that your gout pain control plan is C.L.E.A.R.

      I'll consider other aspects of side effects in specific plans for each uric acid treatment.

      Because it identifies you as a follower. In which case, I can inform you about new content, free services, and paid services

    1. Start with the 2020 ACR probenecid guidelines.

      Then, after learning how those guidelines apply to you, consider: * Research after 2020 * Specialized probenecid topics. Such as probenecid side effects. Or probenecid in gout with comorbidities.

      So my next probenecid research page combines those 2 considerations. Because almost all current probenecid research is about diseases other than gout. Therefore, it is most applicable to gout sufferers with comorbidities.

      For nutrition purposes, I regard salad as part of the vegetable food group. In fact, there are typical salad foods in all the vegetable subgroups. And I'm working on summary pages for vegetables. In preparation for detailed nutrition pages for all foods.

      GoutPal Links subscribers can follow my progress with access to draft copies and research notes for salad foods. Otherwise, return to this page regularly to see updated notes and links.

    2. research into the effects of lettuce on uric acid

      I have published a research summary about lettuce and uric acid. After which, I will summarize lettuce nutrition facts as far as they affect gout sufferers.

    3. Related Topics

      I'm currently reformatting comments and related topics to my latest standard. Including a new related topic: mustard.

      Now, I assume the interest here is because mustard is often used in salad dressings. Anyway, I'm going to start a new mustard research project. As usual, I'll keep GoutPal Links subscribers informed of my progress prior to publication.

      Interestingly, I've become aware that the spice, condiment, or vegetable that we refer to as mustard is also a botanical family of plants. Being brassicaceae, or more commonly the brassica family. I'm aware of this as the cabbage family. But I've now learned it's also known as the mustard family.

      Although that is interesting to me of itself. It is more interesting from a gout perspective. Because there are many more plants to consider that are beneficial.

      For example, candytuft!

      Now, I don't want to slow down my mustard articles by exploring this wider scope. But neither do I want to forget. So I'm logging my new inspiration here. Schempp, H., Totha, A., Weiser, D. and Elstner, E.F., 2003. Antioxidative properties of Iberis amara extracts in biochemical model reactions. Arzneimittelforschung, 53(08), pp.568-577.

      ROS, generated during xanthine oxidase (XOD)-catalysed oxidation of xanthine into uric acid, were also efficiently decreased by IAE (https://doi.org/10.1055/s-0031-1297151)

    1. Identifying the DGA Food Group for each food that concerns you is a good first step.

      So, to help you take that first step, I will describe each food group in terms of daily and weekly requirements. Thus, creating food group index pages. Then, I will link gout nutrition pages for foods within each food group.

    1. This needs replacing with...

      Lettuce & Uric Acid Research in GoutPal Library.

      Lettuce and Gout Nutrition Facts & FAQs in GoutPal Blog * Usual nutrients * Science summary, including different types of lettuce as well as seeds and extracts.

    1. Cod Liver Oil and Uric Acid

      I need to double check those studies to review the dosage. Because cod liver oil is a rich source of vitamin A. And, as noted in the old gout forum, excesses of vitamin A are bad for gout. However, I need to: * Confirm minimum requirements for vtamin A * Look for other vitamin A & uric acid studies * Compare doses in studies to minimum requirements.

      Also, of less importance, but for completeness, the PRAL score for cod liver oil is zero.

    1. Butternut squash

      I'm planning to do an article about Butternut Squash Nutrition for Gout. But an important nutrient is beta-carotene, So before that, I will publish Beta-Carotene Foods & Gout. In the meantime, there are facts to discuss with your health avisers at Butternut Squash & Uric Acid.

      GoutPal Links subscribers can follow my progress on both new pages.

    1. skimmed milk

      Recent observational studies have highlighted the beneficial role of skim milk in prevention of gout.

      Is Milk Good for Gout?

    2. I'm planning a new hub page for cereal & gout.

      GoutPal Links Subscribers can find links to the project map for cereals & gout in Page Notes.

    3. GoutPal Index

      This experiment is too vague to be meaningful. Because a meaningful standard would include daily targets for: * Vitamin C * Negative acid load total (alkaline load) * Positive acid load total. Emphasizing that PRAL scores need to be balanced across essential elements. So that could start with daily recomendations for protein and phosphorous. * Iron * Purines

      So the best option is to wait for new ALKAscore tables for grains (whole and refined). Then do gout versions with extra columns. Also consider splitting grains tables. Because most people are looking for breakfast cereals, and see other types of grains as separate searches.

    1. no scientific studies on apple cider vinegar for gout

      Subsequently, I've found some apple vinegar studies. So I need to update this article to reflect those.

      GoutPal Links Subscribers can encourage me to prioritize the update and/or follow my progress.

    1. If you want me to prioritize any studies

      Including ideas that I've noted here. Because I often jot an idea here as a note, pending my updating this article.

      Vinegar

      There seem to be lots of interesting health benefits besides vinegar's help with arthritis.

    1. Potato Nutrition Article

      I urgently need to update potato information on Foodary.com. So I'm starting with a quick review of key health benefits of potato. Because I will use this on a new Potato Nutrition Facts hub page. Later, I'll investigate specific benefits in greater detail.

      Foodary Nexus Subscribers get free access to my potato article progress notes.

    1. Hypothes.is & 📒ShrewdNotes Web Page Annotation

      I'm blogging about how I'm using Hypothes.is as a starting point for documentation about 📒ShrewdNotes Web Page Annotation. Because I'm learning how to organize efficient workflows with 📒ShrewdNotes. Then I can be certain that my documentation is accurate for when I get more people involved.

      So these are practical notes that guide me. In order to become reference material for anonymous learners, followers, subscribers, and members. Also, these notes can become a framework for Hypothes.is-style 📒ShrewdNotes that I can adapt for Sciwheel and other annotation services.

      Hypothes.is Groups and Tags

      I use Hypothes.is Groups as follows: * Public Group for Anonymous Learners. * 🗃ShrewdSubjects Groups. * My Private Group.

      Public Group for Anonymous Learners

      I make most of my Hypothes.is 📒ShrewdNotes in public. Mainly on my own websites. But increasingly whenever I find anything useful or interesting. Especially where I find good content relating to one of my 🗃ShrewdSubjects. So anyone can follow my Public 📒ShrewdNotes.

      To recognize 🗃ShrewdSubjects, I use Hypothes.is Tags. Currently, these are Food, Gout, and Learning. Where Learning includes any topic not covered by the other subjects. In this way, as I recognize new subjects, I will separate them from Shrewd Learning.

      Note that Public annotations for my subject tags include notes from all Hypothes.is users. So, tags are a great way to collect notes by everyone who is interested in a topic. Also, you can mix and match User, Group, and Tag searches. As well as using free-format search.

      Additionally, I've started using Hypothes.is Tags to help me organize my workflows. Currently, I use 4, but I may extend this as I incorporate annotation into my daily life. My current 4 tags are: * New - denotes new content that I'm preparing. * Change - denotes changes I plan to make. * editing - means that I've saved the note that I'm currently working on. Or that I've forgotten to delete my editing tag! I use this to avoid losing text as I'm writing it, as Hypothes.is does not have autosave. Though there are ways round that. * BuildInPublic - read more at #BuildInPublic.

      🗃ShrewdSubjects Groups

      Though I like to BuildInPublic, I also like to collaborate. Now, collaboration is possible using public annotation. But I'm trying to create services built around teams. So I've created private groups for each 🗃ShrewdSubject.

      Currently, joining these private Hypothes.is groups starts by subscribing to one or more newsletters: * Foodary Nexus Newsletter * GoutPal Links Newsletter * Shrewd Learning Newsletter

      My Private Web Annotation Group

      I try to do most of my content creation in public. Or in teams. So I only currently have one group for private notes. But Hypothes.is allows you to create as many private groups as you need. Which is useful where you want to keep notes separate. However, I recommend using tags unless you are sure you want separate groups of notes.

  6. Vegetables

    Vegetable Food Groups Nutrition

    New hub pages for vegetables.

    Vegetable Food Groups Nutrition Intro

  7. groups:

    groups and subgroups:

    1. Potato Nutrition Research

      I urgently need to update potato information on Foodary.com. So I'm starting with a quick review of key health benefits of potato. Because I will use this on a new Potato Nutrition Facts hub page. Later, I'll investigate specific benefits in greater detail.

      Prior to publication, my potato nutrition research notes are available for Foodary Nexus Subscribers.

    2. Edamame and Inflammation Research

      This short review was prompted by interest from arthritic visitors to a health website. Because edamame seems to have anti-inflammatory properties. However, my early research indicates potential wider applications for edamame as a treatment (or to support medical treatment). So I'm logging 3 studies to summarize anti-inflammatory benefits. Later, I can extend this to other health benefits.

      My first step is to prepare a draft page. Prior to publication, my Edamame and Inflammation research notes are available for Foodary Nexus Subscribers.

    1. individual food pages

      The examples of strawberries and lemons were a start for this fruit food group hub. But a better start would be the list of fruits included in DGA: Fruits All fresh, frozen, canned, and dried fruits and 100% fruit juices: for example, apples, apricots, Asian pears, bananas, berries (e.g., blackberries, blueberries, cranberries, currants, dewberries, huckleberries, kiwifruit, loganberries, mulberries, raspberries, and strawberries); citrus fruit (e.g., calamondin, grapefruit, kumquats, lemons, limes, mandarin oranges, pomelos, tangerines, and tangelos); cherries, dates, figs, grapes, guava, jackfruit, lychee, mangoes, melons (e.g., cantaloupe, casaba, honeydew, and watermelon); nectarines, papaya, passion fruit, peaches, pears, persimmons, pineapple, plums, pomegranates, prunes, raisins, rhubarb, sapote, soursop, starfruit, and tamarind.

      Starting with Raisins Nutrition Facts. For which my prepublication draft is available to Foodary Nexus Subscribers.

    2. Health Benefits of Strawberries

      Repeat treatment of Lemons subsection

    3. Health Benefits of Lemons There are several studies on the health benefits of lemons. For example, one study highlights: Anticancer Anti-inflammatory Antioxidant Anti-tumor The extracts and phytochemicals obtained from all parts of C. limon have shown immense therapeutic potential because of their anticancer, anti-tumor and anti-inflammatory nature, and also serve as an important ingredient in the formulation of several ethnic herbal medicines. These properties are mediated by the presence of different phytochemicals, vitamins and nutrients in the citrus fruits. […] Most of these compounds possessing antioxidant properties would be implicated in offering health benefits by acting as potential nutraceuticals to humans with special reference to disease management of health and disease.[2]

      Move to a new page for Lemon Nutrition Facts.

      Purpose: to help people identify the relationships between lemons, health, and disease in ways that enable them to know how and when to discuss lemon nutrition with professional advisors. So it is not about providing advice, but about helping people work with their advisors. By...

      Learning questions to ask about lemons

      What are the common concerns about lemons?

      Understanding answers to lemon questions

      Facts about how lemons affect wellness and illnesses

      Knowing how to make informed choices.

      Options for including lemons or alternatives in your own eating patterns.

    4. USDA include subgroups in this total fruits and fruit juices group: Intact fruits (whole or cut) of citrus, melons, and berries Intact fruits (whole or cut); excluding citrus, melons, and berries Fruit juices, citrus and non-citrus So there are some studies that focus on identified subgroups. However,

      Delete this because subgroups are not important here.

    5. So here, I look at some important benefits from fruits.

      Because you need to manage your intake of individual fruits in the context of your daily/weekly fruit requirement.

    1. investigations of several diseases related to whole grapes, extracts, juice, wine, and vine leaves.

      But not dried grapes. So I've published Raisin Nutrition Research.

    1. 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans

      Now, I'm restarting with a top-down approach from the 2020-25 guidelines. So I'm changing my focus to start with the nutrients most relevant to the latest DGA food groups: * Calories - importantly, I list my nutrient value defaults per 100 calorie "serving". Because it allows easy comparison and is more meaningful than weight due to dried vs fresh. * PRAL nutrients - I intend to provide split values between acid load and alkaline load nutrients. Which emphasizes the need for a balance of both, and provides a basis for reference values. * Sodium - since DGA emphasizes it and… * Saturated fat (referred to in data tables as solid fat) * Added sugar

      I'll consider other nutrients as I improve tables. But these will probably start as separate references where relevant to specific diseases.

    1. Related Topics

      Historically, the related topics section of each GoutPal page identified relationships using the WordPress Tag feature. However, after I invented WordPress Transmigration, I need a better approach.

      So I must replace this with a navigation map. And create new workflows that enable me to update these maps efficiently.

      #BuildInPublic

    2. Ingredients

      These ingredients need profiling to identify key gout-related nutrients. As listed at Gout Food & Nutrition Science.

    3. I am still researching this topic

      My latest research summarries about edamame and gout are available to GoutPal Links Subscribers. So far, my research notes cover topics for new edamame pages. Including reviews of studies about edamame and uric acid. Also, I'm researching general health benefits of edamame in my Food Research Channel. So I'll re-purpose some of that for gout sufferers where there is an impact on inflammation.

    4. related studies that suggest these beans can help with inflammation and uric acid control

      I'm updating research about Edamame & Uric Acid. Also research about Edamame & Inflammation. So please see the GoutPal Links Subscribers Notes folder for progress notes.

    1. Edamame, frozen, prepared 122 -0.05 Edamame, frozen, unprepared 110 -1.50

      These negative PRAL values for edamame are from early USDA food tables that I retain because many people are used to this format. But my later Beans, Peas, Legumes PRAL List includes edamame with a slightly positive PRAL value.

      So, I need to investigate this as part of my replacement list for Dietary Guidelines Beans, Peas, Lentils Food Group

      Also, I am researching Edamame & Inflammation. So I'll add subscriber notes here as I prepare a new edamame nutrition summary.

    1. facts about grains in general

      I have started researching the health benefits of grains in general. Which is generating a list of diseases that have been shown to be affected by grain consumption. Then I'll start researching each of those diseases in detail.

      Subsequently, I want to see if specific grains have special properties.

      I'll continue to add summaries here for Foodary Nexus Subscribers, as my research develops. So those subscribers get access to pre-publication information. Also, I'll be sharing my detailed research notes with Foodary Nexus Members.

    2. Alkaline Cereal Grains & Pasta List

      Spreadsheet now available. Alkaline Grains SpreadsheetAlkaline Grains Spreadsheet

    1. Acid-Alkaline Breakfast Cereals List

      Early feedback from the spreadsheets has prompted me to upgrade them. Because the original format was great for identifying high acid load cereals. Then switching to high alkaline cereals. But the spreadsheet format allows us to do much more.

      So I've added columns that allow you to easily make better alkaline cereal choices. Significantly, I've added a column for PRAL values per 100 calories. And to emphasize the fact that PRAL values are average estimates, I've dropped the decimal points from that new column. Hopefully that will encourage you to look for changes that lower your PRAL score by at least 2 points per change. Remember, you must plan for some acid forming foods. Just ensure that your total daily PRAL score is negative.

      One benefit from my PRAL spreadsheets upgrade is that it's now easy to see the most acidic and the most alkaline cereals. So here's a couple of significant lists for you...

      Top 10 Acidic Breakfast Cereals

      These cereals are listed with the highest acid load first. Where the first number in the list is PRAL value per 100 calorie serving: [See Foodary Nexus Subscriber notes for pre-publication details]

      Next, a few more from the other end of the scale.

    2. Please share your thoughts

      Please tell me how you use the Alkaline Cereal Spreadsheet to analyze and plan your breakfast cereal consumption. Then I might make more improvements t the spreadsheets. But also tell me about any difficulties you encounter. Because I can help you use the spreadsheet. Also, I can improve instructions for other users.

      You can send your questions, experiences, and opinions to [change link to specific discussion for this page.

    3. As noted, this is now a progress page to monitor the transition from old Foodary tables. So I recommend using search or the links above to get the latest information about alkaline cereals.

      This is true. But with the improvements to the spreadsheets, I recommend that you consider using them to make better alkaline cereal choices today.

      Start by sorting the spreadsheet by the first column. Then find your current cereal choices. Finally look for alternatives with a lower PRAL score.

      Now I say finally. But the reality is that there are probably many ways to use these alkaline food spreadsheets to lower your acid load. So we can do much more together.

    1. What Cereal is good for Gout Sufferers?

      The biggest cereal-related concern for gout sufferers is what cereal is ok for gout

      But before I can answer that, I need to replace the outdated Gout Foods Table for Cereals. Because that GoutPal Index idea never came to anything useful.

      So my replacement pages need to: - Set cereals in the modern (i.e., DGA) context of the grains food group. - Replace the GoutPal Index column with Total Purines - Consider adding a fiber column. Especially with reference to the related concern is granola high in fiber

      For grains in general, the biggest concern is is whole grain bread good for gout. So I should probably start with a grains hub page. That can cover the concerns I've found so far. Then add related faqs and faqs as I complete research into grains, cereal, and fiber.

      Of course, fiber will link into fruit and vegetables groups. So it's not specific to the grains hub page. But I can make this clearer with maps.

      As there are no current cereal-related GoutPal Issues, I'll start this project from here.

    1. GoutPal Library

      I've tried this before with limited success. But, I'm hoping my Gumroad platform allows better access control for valuable resources.

      Certainly. I believe it's the only way I can develop effective gout-friendly recipes, meal plans, and eating patterns. With clear links to the science that helps gout suffereers make better food choices.

      But what do you think?

      Gossip, Triage, and Reasearch notes are the best way to see my ideas in context.

      By itself, that opening sentence is difficult to understand. But as soon as you see it alongside my draft product description, those terms begin to make sense.

      Eventually, I have published lots of notes about my upcoming GoutPal Links service. So I use my GoutPal version of 🗺ShrewdMaps to organize links between my notes and the pages they relate to.

      Not only do maps help you navigate my websites, but I will also provide templates to help resolve common gout concerns. Because templates will provide you with a fast starting point for recovery. That you can adapt to suit your personal needs, goals, and preferences.

      In turn, you can share your maps to ask for help from your professional health advisers. Or to get better quality collaboration with other gout sufferers.

    3. GoutPal Research

      My GoutPal Research notes are similar to GoutPal Triage. But they're a response to my own interests and concerns. As such, I usually assign them lower priority than my notes on specific issues.

      In fact, this note is an example. Because I'm researching how to best implement my new GoutPal Links services. Then I'm adding notes like this to describe my progress towards a complete set of documented resources.

      As I move forward, I will publish extensive notes for subscribers and for members. That will give readers choices about extra information beyond these public gout research notes.

      Please note that those public gout notes are from every Hypothes.is user who writes about gout. Currently, that's only me. But I hope other gout sufferers will join me. At which point, you can find my gout notes with my user tag.

      To get more gout research notes, join the waitlist for gout subscribers.

    4. GoutPal Gossip

      My GoutPal Gossip notes are rare. Because there's not much activity in GoutPal Discussions yet. Also, my focus is on resolving specific gout concerns.

      But as this is part of my #BuildInPublic project, perhaps you'd like to join in by starting a new gout discussion. Or add comments to an existing chat.

      What do you think about gout? Or reply below…

      Please reply

    5. GoutPal Triage

      Except for this GoutPal Links #BuildInPublic project, GoutPal Triage is my first gout priority. Because I want to resolve gout concerns as soon as I can.

      So I create new Issues when I realize that I need to add or change any gout content. Then I use the gout version of 📒ShrewdNotes to add notes about what I'm doing to resolve those concerns.

      More importantly, I want to encourge gout sufferers to triage their own gout concerns. So I'm working on documentation to explain how gout sufferers can use notes to identify what their biggest problems are. Then we can work together to resolve them.

      I hope you can make a start by telling me about your gout concerns. Remember, if you are asking a question, it's best to: 1. Search for that question in GoutPal Search Engine first. 2. Choose the most relevant result. 3. Refer to that result as you ask your question.

    2. I prepare summaries of all my new and planned products and services. Usually monthly.

      For my followers, I prepare a monthly summary containg lists of: - Membership improvements for each subject. - Subscriber topics summary for each newsletter. - Follower posts

      Near the end of the month, I add planned items that I hope to complete. Then I publish the summary in my Posts list, and email it to subscribers.

    3. Instant Update Service

      Optional free membership for followers who want email notification as soon as I publish.

    1. your journey

      Every gout sufferer needs their own personal recovery plan. Because gout affects people in different ways. But it isn't my job to tell you how to treat your gout - that's for you to work out with your doctors. So my job is to help you create your best gout recovery plan with your doctor or other professional health advisers.

    1. Keith Taylor’s Internet ContentWelcome to Keith Taylor’s Internet ContentCurrently, this site is under construction. Because I’m transmigrating from WordPress to Jamstack.

      I need a fresh Home Page. But my priority is to adopt a blogging habit that generates reasonable traffic to this website. Then the purpose of my Home Page will become clearer.

      Unless you already know what it should say!!???

    1. Keith's Learners Resources Feedback

      Maybe this needs a clarification comment??

      I refer to all my readers collectively as Keith's Learners. But the majority are occasional, anonymous visitors. So for people who want to become more involved, I've developed 3 learning subjects: - GoutPal Links for gout sufferers. Which is my current top priority project. - Foodary Nexus for foodies. Which is the working title for my next project. - Shrewd Learning for informal online learners. Which I am currently documenting as a template, as applied to GoutPal Links. Though in the future, it will also serve to evolve new learning subjects.

      #BuildInPublic

    2. ShrewdConcerns is a public place

      Furthermore, I'm adopting a #BuildInPublic approach to all my websites. Because I want to create informal online learning environments that encourage learners to become coaches/mentors. Obviously, that will take time to onboard people and qualify objectives. But I have to start somewhere. And #BuildInPublic seems to me to be my best chance of finding like-minded collaborators.

    3. 📒 ShrewdNotes Web Page Annotation

      I often rush into assessing new applications. Because I learn quicker by applying compared to reading. But one downside is that I frequently miss key features.

      That's only a major drawback if I abandon the application where I can't see how it fits my project. And today I avoided that with serendipity. Because… 1. My application was a Chrome Extension 1. I wanted to test to see if was active and change webpage content accordingly 1. I found I could run the app without an extension - as fully described in the documentation that I skipped reading!

      All of which is an idea for my next blog post. But the real point is I have established a process for starting ad-hoc Shrewd Learning projects "in the wild". Because normally, I start making notes somewhere. Then forgetting where I put them.

      I think we all do that when we spot something interesting that might warrant future research. Now for my established subject areas, I always start annotating new topics within that subject area. So, I can prioritize it in my usual processes.

      Today, I've extended this by tagging public notes with Shrewd Learning. So when I look at the Shrewd Learning Tag, I see all notes that present potential new learning topics. Which opens a great way to collaborate loosely with other people if I can establish some traction with Shrewd Learning.

      For now, this is my reminder to do a personal blog entry based on this. More importantly, I should update this blog entry to reflect recent advances in Shrewd Learning and my other 2 online learning projects.

    1. Keith's Learners Resources

      As noted on the page, Keith's Learners Service is now Shrewd Learning. So I'll blog about those changes as I document them. But first, I need to blog about getting started with Keith Taylor's Followers. Because that's the start for learning all my subjects. Except for anonymous users who rely on public notes like this.

      For now, I'll experiment with drafting new blog posts as a Page Note. Because I'm still trying to define clear workflows for content publishing.

    2. First, check if anyone else shares your concerns at Keith Taylor’s Internet Content Issues. Or start a new issue if your concerns are not already being discussed.

      Simply link to Admin Pages Issue

    5. This note describes planned changes for the Page.

      The Admin Pages Issue covers this page.


      On most websites, my Admin Pages cover the domain. But for Privacy Policy (and some others), my approach is to declare a Keith Taylor Privacy Policy. So that policy applies to all my websites. Unless it is overridden for a specified domain.

      In earlier versions, I considered a complicated system for analyzing privacy needs (see archive). But that was overkill for me. Because visitors choose their own privacy restrictions when visiting my websites. So your choices are...

      Cookies

      All my websites should work without cookies. If you choose to allow cookies, they do not collect any personal information. Furthermore, you can check the privacy policies of the third party services that I use:

      Email Address

      You choose if you want to communicate with me or not. You can communicate via GitHub (Issues and Discussions) or via Gumroad (Subscriptions and Memberships).

      For GitHub, I recommend that you keep your email address private. Which, at the time of writing is the default setting for your GitHub profile. In any event, I will not normally look at your GitHub profile email address.

      For Gumroad, the main purpose of that service is to allow us to communicate via email. So if you want to keep your email address private, don't use my Gumroad services. But I hope that you will want to do so. In which case I recommend that you reserve an email address for the sole purpose of subscribing to my services.

      Most importantly, I will only use your email address to send the products and services that you request. And I will never pass it to anyone else.

      #BuildInPublic

    6. This is a first draft of a privacy policy that can be adapted for all my websites.

      And when I started it, I intended spending time creating a very thorough review of modern Privacy Policies. With a view to developing a template which is better than the pointless boilerplate rolled out by privacy policy generators.

      Alas, I haven't had time to meet the high expectations I set for myself. On the other hand, I've dropped Google Analytics and I'm transmigrating all my sites from WordPress to Eleventy.

      So there's no need for WordPress cookies. And the only analytics data I collect is from Microsoft Clarity. Which as far as I know, does not collect any personal information.

      For personal contact I rely on GitHub and Gumroad. I also use OneSignal notification services and Google Adsense advertising services. Of these, the only personal information I use is your email address that you send to me via Gumroad. And I only use your email address to send the products or services that you request.

      Should you need to investigate further, the Privacy Policies for my third party services are: - GitHub - Google Adsense - Gumroad - OneSignal

    1. #BuildInPublic

      This post is the home of my #BuildInPublic project. Because with my #BuildInPublic approach, I reward followers with earliest content previews.

      In fact, I'm developing tiers of followers/subscribers here. As will become clear in the next few days.

    1. You can activate Hypothesis by

      Embedding Hypothesis in Websites and Platforms

      Embedding Hypothesis To add Hypothesis to your website or platform, simply add the following line to the HTML source of your page:

      <script src="https://hypothes.is/embed.js" async></script>

      From https://web.hypothes.is/help/embedding-hypothesis-in-websites-and-platforms/

      Which continues with an example of Hypothes.is client configuration.

    1. Your guidelines for private and public gout discussions are here on my contact page.

      Is it the best to put private vs public in the Contact Page? Or should it be separate?

      I think it is best to include it in the Contact Page. Because my perception is that it's all about contacting me. But I should do a poll on this.

      Also, this isn't just a Gout issue, so it needs to be addressed in other subject sites. And as it is a fundamental part of successful collaboration, I will repeat it in Food and Learning.
