Excerpt from The Dublin Journal of Medical Science, Vol. 99: January to June, 1895
Very small quantities Of sodium chloride (01 per cent. Or even less) appreciably favour the precipitation of the crystalline bi urates. Hence, it seems reasonable to direct gouty patients to restrict, as far as practicable, the use Of common salt with their meals, and to avoid mineral springs which are rich in sodium salts. And here let me add a word of caution not to fall into the trap of regarding gout and uric acid gravel, i.a., precipitation in the urinary passages, as convertible terms, especially from a therapeutic point of view.
