No: No it does not. Colchicine is actually a poor choice to treat gout flares. Indomethacin, Prednisone or local cortisone injections are far more effective with lower risk.

Peanut and gout: No, peanut foods wll not trigger gout. Colchicine dose is 0.1. Mg /d.Take in tart cherry juice and tart cherries, 20/day. Add Lemon extract 4 tblspns / day. And avoid alcohol, animal fats, organ meats, anchovies, sardines, tuna, salmon, and shellfish. Limit other meats to 4 oz per day. Avoid high fructose corn syrup containing drinks and foods. Add egg whites, quinoa, soy as protein.

Peanuts by them self are consider a low in purine production ... But nut butters may contain a high amount of fructose corn syrup .. This depends on the processing... If u make ur own or avoid peanut butter with hfc syrup... Research shows HFCs may lead to gouty arthritis ...
