Gout Flare-ups Nearly 5 Times as Likely in People With Diets High in Some Meats, Seafood

WebMD Health News, May 30, 2012: If you have gout, you may want to pass on the liver and keep the anchovies off the pizza. People who had the highest amounts of compounds called purines in their diets increased their risk of having a gout flare-up by almost five times compared to those eating the least purine-rich foods, a new study shows.

Foods with the highest purine content include liver, organ, and game meats, sardines, mussels, anchovies, herring, and beer. Foods with moderate levels of purine include red meats, chicken, fish, asparagus, mushrooms, peas, beans, lentils, cauliflower, and spinach.

Gout is a type of inflammatory arthritis that affects up to 3 million Americans, according to the American College of Rheumatology. The condition occurs when too much uric acid builds up in the body, which can lead to crystal deposits of uric acid in the joints.

It’s not unusual for someone to have their first attack of gout in the big toe, which becomes red, warm, swollen, and extremely painful. Gout is also more likely to occur in men, in people who are overweight, or in those who drink too much alcohol or eat too many high-purine foods.

Over the years I have witnessed many weight loss hypnosis clients who cut out meat, dairy and other animal proteins allowing their body to heal. Over time, they are able to begin eating asparagus, mushrooms, peas, beans, lentils, cauliflower, and spinach- as long as they avoid dairy, poultry, fish beef and pork.
