TagProtein & Gout

The protein-gout relationship is one of the most misunderstood factors of gout. Protein intake reduces uric acid. Yes, that’s right – protein causes you to excrete more uric acid. The only problem is that flesh-based protein foods also raise uric acid, and usually by more than the protein element can reduce it. The answer is simple – do not stop eating meat (at least not on the grounds of gout control), simply mix your protein sources so that meat is around a third, or less.

Medical Disclaimer: The pupose of GoutPal is to provide jargon-free explanations of medical gout-related terms and procedures. Because gout sufferers need to know what questions to ask their doctor. Also, you need to understand what your doctor tells you. So this website explains gout science. But it is definitely NOT a substitute for medical advice.

Information on this website is provided by a fellow gout sufferer (Keith Taylor) with an accountant's precision for accurate data. But no medical qualifications. So you must seek professional medical advice about gout and any other health matters.
