What Are Purines?

Gout Diet Discussions: What Are Purines?

GoutPal’s gout diet pages show you how to choose the best food and drink to suit your gout treatment plan. You can make dietary choices to help that plan. I explain food and drink as gout treatment in my Gout Remedy guidelines. If you are unsure what to eat, or what to avoid, this forum can help you.

Gout is not an eating disorder, and dietary issues are often overrated, but gout patients still have to eat. I believe your gout diet should help your gout treatment plan, not hinder it. That means that reviewing your diet to suit your treatment plan can help you on your journey to gout freedom. However, trying to change your diet without a gout treatment plan is a waste of time.

Please remember that this forum is about Gout Diet (food, drink, exercise or other lifestyle issues), so please see the gout forum description. There are other forums to discuss other aspects of gout, and if you are not sure, please see the Using GoutPal forum. There is a full list of forums in the menu near the top of each page.

Till now i have only heard that meat, alcohol and some of the vegetables like cauliflower, beans, lentils contains more purines so persons with gaut need to avoid them for reducing the uric acid level.
