What are the 10 Foods that trigger Gout?

Uric acid is a chemical that is created when the body breaks down substances called purines. Purines are normally produced in the body and are also found in some foods and drinks.

In principle, uric acid dissolves in the blood, travels to the kidneys and from there is excreted in the urine. However, if we produce too much uric acid or do not eliminate enough uric acid, it can lead to the development of hyperuricemia, gout and can also cause kidney stones.

Painful gout attacks are the best known consequence of hyperuricemia. But, with a diet low in purines, we could avoid them. Here are the foods richest in purines:

  1. Red meat
  2. Fish
  3. Seafood
  4. Alcohol
  5. Caffeine
  6. Guts
  7. Fried food
  8. Rich salsas
  9. Soft Drinks
  10. Fruit juices

For being rich in purines, these foods can trigger a crisis, so it is best to avoid them. You can learn which foods affect you the most. Reactions to different foods can vary from person to person. Remember that diet is only one part of gout treatment. It is also important to take medicines or home remedies to treat gout.
