Gout is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis in men, and is caused by a buildup of uric acid in the bloodstream. A gout attack can occur suddenly and wake you up in the middle of the night with excruciating pain of your big toe. Luckily, dietary interventions can help. While they cannot cure gout, they can reduce the risk of attacks and slow down progression of the condition. Attune Health nutritionist Natalie Fortune breaks it down: 1. Achieve a healthy weight. Every extra pound we have on us is the equivalent of four extra pounds on our joints, making it crucial to shed excess weight. 2. Avoid certain foods, including those that are high in purines. Here are some foods and drinks that you should think about avoiding: - Red Meats (organ meat, game) - Shellfish - Alcohol (especially beer and liquor) - Simple Carbohydrates #attunehealth #selfcare #tiptuesday #gout #rheumatology #medicine #foodismedicine #foodies #alcohol #redmeat #shellfish #carbs #uricacid #diet #dietplan #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunediet #autoimmuneprotocol #dietcoach #dietitian #selfimprovement #loseweịght #beverlyhills #losangeles @ Beverly Hills, California
