GOUT DIET should be stricly followed to prevent swelling of your toes/feet. Gout is a common disease that often affects men aged 25 and up. Symptoms include severe swelling and pain of the joints of the toes, hands, and knees.
To find out and confirm if gouty arthritis is your disease, your uric acid needs to be tested through a blood test.
This disease can be:
1. inherited from the parent
2. cause by too much consumption of foods high in Uric Acid
Looking for a GOUT DIET? Here is a list of what foods a person with gout should avoid?
We can say that drinking alcohol like beer, after a tiring day or on an occasion we are celebrating, is a break, but it should be avoided especially if you have “Gout”. The purine level of these beverages is high and is comparable to the excessive consumption of Fructose in sugar and contributes to the increase of Uric Acid levels.
Excessive consumption of seafood (shellfish, scallops, mussels, herring, mackerel, sardines and anchovies) can worsen gout because of its high purine content which results to an increase in Uric Acid production.
Fructose or “Fruit Sugar” is found in honey, fruits, some vegetables, and sweeteners. Fructose increases purine metabolism causing an increase in the level of Uric Acid in the blood. Avoid high-Fructose sweeteners such as Honey, Brown Sugar, High-Fructose Corn Syrup, and Golden Syrup. It is also found in beverages such as softdrinks.
Avoid frequent consumption of offal or organ meat like liver, intestines, tongue, heart, and brain. These include dinuguan, igado, lengua, papaitan, sisig, kare-kare and other similar foods that we often see on streets. It is one of the main causes of “Gout”. Eating such can cause the onset of symptoms of the disease. They contain high purine which causes the formation of crystal arthritis.
Are you fond of eating hotdog, tocino, ham, and other processed foods? You better start looking for better food alternatives. Aside from the fact that it aggravates your “Gout”, overconsumption also causes kidney disease, diabetes, high blood, and other serious diseases.
There might be many additions to your food limit, but there are also a ton of alternatives that will make your body healthier. From the given facts, you can build a sample menu that contains the following: fruit, whole grain bread, nuts, eggs, cheese, and yogurt. You can also eat white meat but do not over consume.
