So this was the cause of gout ! Since they did not know the true cause of gout in the 18th century, here the cartoonist imagines it arrives as a devil and it impregnates the feet. And it seems to have ruined this fellow since, like the home fisherman on our first gout pictures page his surroundings are sparsely furnished.

The fellow in the Bath chair with an enormous girth (below), has an encounter with Mr. Gout, or is he his doctor? Really does not make much difference. Imagine a doctor's lack of gout knowledge at that time (18th century). He didn't know the true role of uric acid (not really discovered as the cause of gout until the middle of the 19th century); did not know about purines in foods;did not know how to measure uric acid in blood; did not know uric acid is mainly excreted in urine.

Neither would doctors have known that insulin resistance is a cause of gout. Thankfully in those days, diets were deficient in the processed, high carbohydrate foods which cause insulin resistance.

So doctors' advice could not have been very helpful, but they might have had a few good ideas. Such as exercise and take colchicum (colchicine).
