    Drink plenty of water (2X usual intake) ... avoid coffee or tea (exception being Japanese green tea) - did that and cleared my system within a few hours when I OD on meat ....
    Everyday is a good day for GOOD FOOD and a GOOD LAUGH

    Not everyone will develop gout.

    The amount of uric acid (the cause of gout) in your blood is not caused by food alone. The kidneys’ ability to rid the body of uric acid is partly determined by heredity. If your body can handle the uric acid, no need to avoid shell fish, etc.

    If body can't handle the level of uric acid, seek help from doctor, control diet and excercise more..

    Avoid foods high in purines and your problem will go away.

    Purine-containing foods include:

    Beer, other alcoholic beverages

    Anchovies, sardines, fish roes, herring, mackerel, scallops

    Yeast

    Organ meat (liver, brain, kidneys, sweetbreads)

    Legumes (dried beans and peas)

    Game meats

    Meat extracts, consomme, gravies

    Mushrooms, spinach, asparagus, cauliflower


    Good luck!

    Go consult a doctor.

    Have been recommended the Cochichine plus NSAIDS when attack

    Allopurinol for prevention BUT it's not for everybody. It can cause stress on your Liver.

    Good idea. At least the good doc will prescribe a course of medicine to get rid of the "needles" and excruciating pain.

    If you stay away from the types of food as mentioned in post no.24, the gout will not return.

    They say gout is a rich man's disease. Good thing I am poor!

    Thank goodness i don't have a problem with some of those items listed. I recently have been buying loads of mushrooms that were on sale and made pots of creamy mushroom soup. I cook a lot of cauliflower and recently had lots of asparagus (in season) and some spinach (Goma-ai is a fantastic dish to have in summer and Spinach bacon quiche is great in Winter). I regularly have toast with Vegemite in the mornings when i have supply from Australia , so yeast isn't a problem for me either. I cook dhal curry once in a while and no problems either. The seafood listed is something i don't consume much at all coz they really do affect me a bit. I avoid organ meat but once in a while i do have a tiny bit.... no probs.
    All said, i am glad my gout problem isn't serious, which is good, coz i certainly cannot have cucumber or orange, which upsets my tummy , causing bloatedness and headaches.
    Insecurity is unattractive. Smile and the whole world smiles with you.

    Thank God! It is not easy to have a very restricted diet and I love food too much to be restricted a lot, although i probably have to get on cholesterol meds soon, considering my inherent family history of heart disease. We might look all slim and active but the cholesterol wont go away. Win some , lose some eh?
