Summary The influence of dietary habits on the gout development has been described for over a hundred years, but at present many opinions are being verified, which have not been so far supported by epide-miological or clinical studies. The promotion of healthy dietary be-haviours, keeping proper body mass and adequate dietary pattern are the factors, which support lowering of serum uric acid. Diet in gout should be well-balanced and contain the proper amount of selected nutrients, not only low… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

The correlation of uric acid levels with biochemical parameters and dietary factors in individuals with asymptomatic hyperuricemia and gouty arthritis

Dietary factors, including triglyceride, uric acid, CRP, vitamin B12, and homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance were found to be affected by high uric Acid levels.

Dietary Restriction: A Major Factor in Prophylaxis against Calcium Oxalate Urolithiasis

Practical Dietary Modification can Aid In Prophylaxis Against Cao Ur, a Worldwide Problem that affects All Groups Of Ages.



Purine-rich foods, dairy and protein intake, and the risk of gout in men.

Higher levels of meat and seafood consumption are associated with an increased risk of gout, whereas a higher level of consumption of dairy products is associated with a decreased risk.

A concise history of gout and hyperuricemia and their treatment

The development of xanthine oxidase inhibitors, which are effective in reducing plasma and urinary urate levels and have been shown to reverse the development of tophaceous deposits, was the most important historical advance in the treatment of hyperuricemia.

Community based epidemiological study on hyperuricemia and gout in Kin-Hu, Kinmen.

Risk factors for hyperuricemia tended to be different with respect to sex and age and alcohol consumption and central obesity were independent predictors of gout amonghyperuricemic subjects irrespective of uric acid level.

The interaction between uric acid level and other risk factors on the development of gout among asymptomatic hyperuricemic men in a prospective study.

Uric acid level is the key factor for prevention of gout and needs constant monitoring, and other contributing or possible etiologic factors such as alcohol consumption, diuretics use, and excess weight gain carry an increased risk of g out attack among patients with hyperuricemia.

The role of diet in the management of gout: a comparison of knowledge and attitudes to current evidence.

Patients with gout in the present study were not implementing evidence for dietary management of their condition and complex dietary issues were evident.

Urine alkalization facilitates uric acid excretion

Alkalization of urine by eating nutritionally well-designed food is effective for removing uric acid from the body, indicating that H+ in urine is generated by the metabolic degradation of food materials.

Trends in hyperuricemia and gout prevalence: Nutrition and Health Survey in Taiwan from 1993-1996 to 2005-2008.

Investigation of trends in uric acid levels, hyperuricemia and gout among adults in Taiwan from 1993-1996 to 2005-2008 found changes in dietary patterns may in part explain the decrease in uring acid levels between the two national surveys.

Prevalence of gout and hyperuricemia in the US general population: the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2007-2008.

The findings from nationally representative samples of US adults suggest that the prevalence of both gout and hyperuricemia remains substantial and may have increased over the past 2 decades, which is likely related to increasing frequencies of adiposity and hypertension.

Lack of association between dietary fructose and hyperuricemia risk in adults

Examination of the association of dietary fructose intake with hyperuricemia risk in adults suggests a potential effect of fructose consumption in an ordinary diet on serum uric acid differs from results found in some short-term studies using atypical exposure and/or levels of fructose administration.
