Your Diet Is Causing You Pain

Jan 31, 2008
If you suffer with gout then you should be changing your diet right now. Your diet, including your intake of fluids (alcoholic and non alcoholic), is affecting every part of your body including your joints where the gout pain appears.

The general consensus is that if your diet is high in purines and protein then you are more likely to suffer with gout. Gout is caused by a build up of uric acid and when purines break down they form uric acid. When your body has more uric acid than it can deal with little crystals made up of uric acid will form in your joints and cause pain and inflammation.

If you suffer from gout then your diet is far more important to your health than most people realize, eating foods that are high in purines will result in increased levels of Gout attacks. Some of the foods that you should avoid include liver, kidneys, brains and game meat.

Is all that beer and red meat you eat worth all the gout pain that you are experiencing? You need to take your gout diet seriously and realize that the more notice you take of the food you put into your mouth the greater your chance of reducing your pain from gout is.

Eat your vegetables , they are good for you. How many times have we all heard that as children, well Gout is one of the few diseases where some vegetables could actually be causing you pain. You should start cutting down on your intake of corn, peas and potatoes as soon as possible.

All liquids are not created equal in terms of the effect they will have on your gout. Beer is the worst item for someone with gout to consume, while any alcohol is not ideal. Most of us don't drink enough water , this affects all of us but especially someone with gout. Gout sufferers should try to drink 8 glasses of water a day.

Many people will look at the list of things to remove from their diet so their gout can improve and just think it is all to much so they do nothing. Pick one thing that is bad for you and start off by reducing then removing it from your diet completely. Once you have conquered one food then you can move onto the next one, you need to make lifestyle changes rather than just changing your diet a little for a week or two.

By making changes to your dietary habits and using a gout diet for which you can find plenty of advice on the internet about, you will discover that you are better able to control the condition. Certainly over time not only will the symptoms and attacks associated with this condition be greatly reduced, but you will feel much better in yourself as well.
