My doctor thinks I have gout; I should get the uric acid blood result back next week. Assuming it is gout, I have the option of trying to lower uric acid levels by 1) taking a prescription drug (allopurinol), or 2) by diet. Old school diet... (more)

If it were me, I'd do my own research and see how I could improve the situation through diet first. Drugs are only going to mess you up elsewhere in my opinion. I wonder if Dr Kruse says anything about any supplements to help?

It's funny: I never had these problems when I was eating S.A.D. (very little fruits and veggies). Now that I'm doing my best to eat healthy Paleo, I'm having several problems (but I think they are related). I seem to develop progressively worse... (more)

In my experience with my own gout, and talking to other sufferers (both Paleo and SAD) it seems like everyone has a trigger. For me it's alcohol, and more specifically beer. The less beer I drink the less acute attacks I get, and the less alcohol... (more)

Unfortunately it's coming from purines in Paleo staples: organ meats, beef and bacon. If you are genetically susceptible to gout, you do have to take it easy on organ meats. Your uric acid level is probably significantly lower than before, as... (more)

The diet is not to blame. Lack of exercise, and lack of vitamin C are typically the primary causes of gout. You seem to be getting plenty of vitamin C. This does not sound like gout. Dietary akes up a very minor rise in serum urate... (more)

I seem to keep hearing of people getting gout on both LC and Paleo diets. Of course some might seize upon this fact, and claim it as "proof" that we are not adapted to a very high purine/meat diet. (I think most paleo folks already know to avoid... (more)

Does red wine contain fructose, and could drinking red wine, about 1/2 bottle per day, trigger or exacerbate gout?

That isn't really a question. I'm guessing it might get closed unless you make it a question, rather than a link to your blog. Also, some of your science seems iffy.

If it is due to hyperuricemia, then vitamin C supplementation should help to mitigate it. I think massive changes in vitamin C intake are bad if it's gout, but 1 gram a day would be unlikely to cause problems. I personally take about 1-1.5g a day.... (more)
