Gout is a condition where uric acid crystals build up in our joints. The crystals can trigger intermittent attacks of excruciating joint pain.
Some people find that cutting down on foods that have purine – like fatty red meat and seafood – helps their gout. This is because purine is an amino acid found in proteins that is converted to uric acid. Meat eaters should keep to non-red meat and as lean as possible.
Also, others find relief avoiding foods that promote inflammation like alcohol, refined carbohydrates, simple sugars and full fat dairy.
