Avoid High Purine Diet for Gout


Gout is caused by high level of uric acid in your blood. Uric acid is made from the breakdown of purines contained in our diet. Usually uric acid is excreted by our kidnyes. Uric acid will be high in our blood due to two reasons

  1.  You consume excess amounts of purine rich diets.
  2. Kidneys are not functioning properly and cannot excrete enough uric acid

So if you have problems with high uric acid and causing joint pains or acute gout attacks then you should stick to low purine diet.
