My blood levels do not go above 140 and are normally about 100, yet my right foot is so painful I can't step on it. Not in the big toe joint like gout, but in the thick part to the outside behind the toes. It comes on after certain meals, even meals that are minimal. I have been thought to be prediabetic and my mother died with many diabetic problems. As a 65-year-old engineer trying to understand, I think this is more related to carbs than meat. One test said Lupus, Mayo said no. Confused?
