I started the Medifast program in March 2011 for weight loss. I developed painful gout in the first week. I'd never had gout in my life. The condition persisted through 2 steriod treatments. Both feet were crippled; I had to use crutches.
Upon my doctor's recommendation, I ceased the program. The gout went away. Then I started again and immediately developed gout again.
The company refused to take back any unopened product, saying their was no proof the gout was due to their product. They weren't even very nice about it. The program was painful AND expensive. Never again.
