Your GoutPal Update

I flagged this article for review as part of my project to make this website easier for all gout sufferers. Therefore, I must make it clear that:

  1. This article is aimed at Gout Dieters. Specifically, gout sufferers who are actively monitoring the effects of their diet changes on their uric acid levels. Otherwise, gout sufferers interested in food should start at GoutPal Plan for Gout Foodies.
  2. Gout Dieters should seek high-protein, low-purine foods. But, they must recognize that vegetable purines do not raise uric acid. Because not all foods high in purines can be described as foods high in uric acid.
  3. Individual high protein foods from animals should not be omitted from your diet simply because they are high in purines. Because Gout Dieters must consider total diet and all factors that affect uric acid levels. Especially purine-rich flesh from overweight bodies.

Finding gout cures you enjoy eating or drinking, brings a smile to any gout sufferer.

Today, I’ll revisit milk to bring us all up to date with the latest research, before I delve into my investigation of the myths and mysteries surrounding high protein foods.

Milk Diet For Gout: Introduction

The 1991 investigation claiming milk is beneficial for gout appears to be somewhat ignored by the medical profession. Now, almost 10 years later, a similar investigation reports similar findings. I have not done a full comparison of the two milk and uric acid studies. For one thing, I do not have full access to the latest study. However, you should find plenty of useful information in this summary taken from the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) press release.

Please note that I’ve paraphrased the original press release to make it more readable and relevant to us non-medical people. The full report about gout and milk has subsequently been published in the British Medical Journal [1].
