    So best to avoid these rich foods

    I have had problems with gout since i was a kid. No one figured it out at the time as my grandma just figured it was "fung sup" and that was it. So i suffered for years until i was married, had kids and then finally realized it was gout that i had, when i told my sister in Singapore that i kept having pain in my knees after drinking soya milk that i would make fresh every few days. She said... "What? You have gout??" and i was like.. "what?? I have gout??" Anyway, basically i, in no time at all, figured i couldn't eat tomatoes that were not properly vine-ripened, no edamame, no soya milk/taufoofah/ taufu, organ-meats, assam jawa and those were the things i consumed a fair bit of, at the time. I seem to be fine with alcohol.
    One thing i should point out though, is that my problem with gout is hereditary and it isnt serious'as how some have it. I hardly ever get any pain now since i know to avoid those things that i can't have but i can still have small amounts of it once in a while. I don't need to eliminate it entirely from my diet. My pain used to be in the knees only and happens at night, which can be remedied but rubbing some Bengay/deepheat/muscle pain medicated rub, after which i can go back to sleep and the pain goes away. I have a friend who has the same problem and i asked for a list of foods he consumes normally, it seems soya based products were the common problem we had. He has since had lesser pain after watching his diet.
    The key is to know what you seem to tolerate and what you cannot. Not everyone is the same.

    Yes, control your diets & if things get out of control see your Doctor. Do blood test regularly & monitor the uric acid

    No one can win these two : gene and aging

    If your genes are favarouble to your lifestyle, I guess big churn of problems solved. Just spend more efforts to deal with problems caused by aging. If genes work against your lifestyle, change your lifestyle and seek medical help to understand the problems.

    I guess people just like to "solve" the symptoms...
    Chinese tea is good, lager beer is better, 香檳 is the best..

    Do this survey and check your risk. This survey tool was developed by Diabetes UK, the University of Leicester and the University Hospital of Leicester NHS Trust.

    https://riskscore.diabetes.org.uk/st...431.1488694805

    After completing the survey, check your scores and see which factors contribute to your diabetes risks. Although this is not related to gout but it demonstrates a clear link between your gene and diabetes risk. Pay attention to your ethnic group and family medical history and see how these factors affect your overall scores.

    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.

    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?
