Foods that trigger the gout
To help prevent a gout attack, avoid these foods:
• Alcohol (beer, red wine)
• Yeast (Baker’s and Brewer’s)
• Certain meats (red meat, processed meat, turkey, goose)
• Organ meats (kidney, liver, sweetbread)
• Shellfish (lobster, crab, shrimp, scallop, mussel)
• Certain fish (anchovy, sardine, herring, mackerel)
• Drinks, such as coffee, cocoa, tea
• Legumes and vegetables like peas, beans, cauliflower, asparagus, lentils, mushrooms, and spinach. (This latter category is a relative one in that the uric acid effect from vegetables does not appear to be the same deleterious trigger that the other factors are.)
Also, once gout is treated medically and the serum uric acid is chronically maintained at a level of 6.0 mgs/dl or lower, then diet is less of an issue.
