While I was getting a kick out of my mom's melange (sometimes I wonder where these words come from) of birthday gifts, it turns out she was trying, quite literally, to take the piss out of me. I spoke to her on the phone for a bit and got the scoop on the G.O.U.T.
I've had some troubles with a joint on my right hand, and she believes it might be gout which is caused by high levels of uric acid in the blood. I'm not sure that the diagnosis is correct or that this supplement will do the trick, but that was the intent.
Ok, so it's still a little funny. At least now I know the reasoning.
