What is Gout?
Gout is an inflammation of the joints caused by the crystallization of excess uric acid. The crystals have jagged edges that irritate the tissue and cause pain. Gout is caused by genetic susceptibility, diets that are high in meat and saturated fat, alcohol consumption, fungal overgrowth, obesity, diabetes, stress and psoriasis.
High uric acid may be found in the blood before gouty symptoms appear. Gout most commonly affects the main joint of the big toe but the elbow, knee and thumb can be affected. Symptoms come on suddenly and include joint pain, swelling, redness and heat. Fever and fatigue may also occur. Attacks last days to weeks and reoccur as long as uric acid levels remain high.
Dietary changes can alter uric acid levels by 10-20% which is often enough to stop crystallization. Do not eat rich foods, sugar or white flour products. Do not drink coffee or alcohol. Avoid eating purine-rich foods such as red meat, shellfish, anchovies, sardines, herring, meat gravy, mussels, organ meat, asparagus and yeast products. Other foods that increase uric acid, and should be avoided during acute attacks, are fish, poultry, dried beans, lentils, peas, spinach, cauliflower, oatmeal and mushrooms.
Avoid high doses of niacin and vitamin A. By eating a vegetarian diet, with lots of raw food, the body remains alkaline and prevents uric acid from crystallizing. Drink lots of filtered water to keep the urine dilute.
Eat whole grains, wheat germ, cherries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. These foods contain B vitamins and flavinoids that prevent gout attacks.
