A New Diet for Your Gout Problem
There is absolutely no doubt about that. Gout is one of the most painful diseases you can have. This is an illness I suffer from from time to time and when I have it I am really in agony. Gout is known as the “disease of the rich,” but now in modern times we know that’s not the case. Gout can be attributed to many things, with the main culprits listed at the end of this article. I decide to do some research on this issue, so I’ve included some foods to use and some to avoid below. I would seriously try these. I have and it has helped me to no end.
5 recommended foods
1, Water – Water is an absolute must as it helps flush your body and thus rid it of excess uric acid (the acid that causes gout). Plus, it helps keep your kidneys fresh so they continue to work as they should. Your kidneys are a filter for draining uric acid.
2, Cherries – It has now been proven that cherries do indeed contain a chemical that is a great source for fighting gout. Cherry juice is a great supplier of the nutrients needed to combat the onset of gout. My dad actually tried Cherryade when he had gout, and as silly as it sounds, it actually worked. However, I would not recommend it due to the sugar content in carbonated drinks. Sugar can also be a contributing factor in gout
- Pineapple – This food is another great source to combat gout as it contains the same properties and nutrients as cherries.
4, Potatoes – Potatoes are an excellent food in the fight against gout. They should actually be cooked, but pureed is fine (just another way of cooking) but try to stay away from french fries as with these, the frying process means they actually lose some of the nutrients during the cooking process, too cooked or Jacket.
5, Essential Fatty Acids. Tuna, salmon, etc. are another fantastic way to relieve your gout
to avoid foods.
Below is a list of foods to avoid. This list of foods is not exhaustive and you should always be careful what you buy. You can’t go around looking for foods that are low in purine (the chemical that leads to uric acid), which is impractical, so use your own common sense here. However, based on my research, these are the foods you should avoid.
alcohol – Actually of course!!! one of the worst offenders, especially beer and lager, bitter (for those in the UK) red and white wine
sardines – a lot of purine
sauces – Sauces, rich and creamy sauces.
Offals/ organ products – kidneys, liver. heart
As I mentioned before, you need to find what is best for you as every person is different. Please do not refuse the foods I recommend. You can find out what is best for you.
