More Details About Gouty Arthritis

Diet for Gout

For people with gouty arthritis, diet can play a role in causing a gout attack because foods high in purines will increase the amount of uric acid the body makes (see Gout Risk Factors). Therefore, the primary gout diet recommended for people who have gouty arthritis is a low-purine diet. Also, eating more low-fat dairy products, which are low in purines, has been shown to decrease the chances of having a gout attack.
