One of the great things about living in a diverse, urban community like our Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is the wide range of culinary experiences one can have. For those who want to sample the various offerings from our local restaurants, you may be interested in Taste of Dallas. This three-day event occurs usually in June. It promises “full plates and full stomachs” for those who wish to attend!
If you are one of the over 8 million Americans who live with gout, you might think it is in your best interest to take a pass on the festival, but gout-safe eating tips can help you navigate any food festival like a pro.
Gout is a form of arthritis that develops on account of uric acid that builds up and crystalizes in joints, especially at the base of the big toe. Uric acid is a natural byproduct of food breakdown, but it is supposed to be filtered in the kidneys and then flushed out in urine. When the body produces too much, or doesn’t dispose of it as intended, issues arise. Fortunately, a good eating plan can help. This includes:
Gout-safe eating can definitely help you to manage the condition and lower the risk of a painful gout flare, but do not underestimate the benefit of getting professional treatment here at Dallas Podiatry Works. We can provide further information on medications and diet, so you can attend food festivals armed with a gout prevention plan.

The doctor has great “bedside manners” when talking to patients. Great staff and comfortable atmosphere.
The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of foot care.
I would highly recommend Dr. Brook to anyone with foot problems–especially problems that stump other podiatrists. He really is very caring and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Joel Brook and the staff were nice and helpful. Though I was a new patient, I got right in as soon as they were open in my preferred location. They diagnosed the problem and provided medicines along with a perfect gel bandage so I could keep exercising while my toes healed. My toes already hurt less and look a little better each day. If I have future issues, I will be a repeat customer. Here’s hoping I don’t, but at least I know my feet are in good hands.
I visited this office for an ingrown toe nail a few years ago. After seeing another doctor, who made it worse, he referred me to Dallas Podiatry Works. The doctor there was able to fix my problem. I’m not great with reviews, all I can tell you is that this doctor and staff will have you up and running or doing whatever it is you do in no time. You will be in great hands. You’d be a fool not to use this doctor. Now its time to visit him again for the other toe.
Been having bad ankle pains for 6 months was referred here and it was a great visit ladies in the front desk medical assistants and the Doctor were all very friendly and make you feel very comfortable.
