Can You Reduce Your Risk of Gout by Avoiding Certain Foods?

Final Thoughts on Foods That Cause Gout

There are a couple of things to keep in mind when talking about whether gout is caused by food. First of all, there is no bad meal. In other words, eating shellfish or meat that are high in purines once in a while is not going to cause gout. However, eating these foods on a regular basis can increase your risk. Secondly, this study looked at people with no history of gout. It did not study people with gout to see if these foods would play a role in decreasing another gout attack. People with gout should follow their recommended gout diet (see Gout Diet for a recommended diet for gout).
