What are the foods to avoid if you have gout?

Mine flares up badly when I eat certain foods.


Answer by  angelsmom08 (200)

Do not eat foods such as anchovies, sardines, liver, scallops because they have high purine content which is known to exacerbate the symptoms of gout. You also might want to ease off with the gravy while eating your favorite fried chicken and take asparagus, cauliflower, spinach, mushrooms and green peas in moderation.

Most gout sufferers are beer drinkers. Beer consumption is nearly guaranteed to cause a flare up in patients with gout. Seafoods with high level of purine should be avoided. You should keep a diary to track the relationship between your food choices and flare-ups.

If you have contracted gout, then one of the worst foods you could eat is fish. Seafood affects gout in a very negative manner.

You should avoid goat meat. My Grandpa went vegetarian because every time he ate goat meat his gout would flare up. Goats are very dirty animals and carry many diseases.
