Best & Worst Foods to Avoid with Gout

What is Gout?

Gout is an inflammatory arthritis that develops as a result of high levels of uric acid in the body.

Uric acid is a waste material resulting from the breakdown of purines, which are part of all human tissue and are found in many foods, especially those high in protein.

If there is hyperuricemia, or what we call is too much uric acid in the blood, it means that uric acid is overly produced or not excreted in the body.

This excess uric acid can still accumulate, crystallize, and then deposit in certain joints, most commonly in the big toe, and this can lead to attacks of inflammation.

This inflammation causes sudden, severe episodes of pain, tenderness, redness, warmth, and swelling in the affected joint, which can last for a few days if untreated.

The higher the level of uric acid, the greater the incidence of gout.

Diagnosis entails having a compatible clinical picture of acute joint swelling, demonstration of elevated uric acid levels in the blood, and detection of uric acid crystals in affected joints through joint spiration or imaging.

Gout is a metabolic disease. That is one of the oldest human diseases. Disorder is the result of eating high in Purine foods.
