What could be some causes for reoccurring gout in an individual that is athletic and diet is all in moderation. Some alcohol 3-4 per week? . Thanks!
Gout causes: Gout can be related to diet but sometimes no specific dietary influences are found. It's often due to a metabolic defect whereby you produce too much uric acid. This can then crystalize in a joint and cause severe pain. Have you had your uric acids level checked? If it's raised and you are having recurrent attacks you might want to consider a medication called allopurinol.See 2 more doctor answers
Had first gout attack 3 months ago, since then I've made a real effort to change diet, cut out alcohol, lose weight, but having attacks now. Normal?
Yes: Diet is one contributing factor to but certain characteristics of your body also play a role. Your body is either over producing uric acid or not eliminating enough uric acid. That Is WHY you are having attacks. A doctor can prescribe medicine to help you with that. Also, certain arthritic conditions can mimic gout so a thorough workup would be a very good idea. Hope this helps!
Makes it worse: Alcohol increases the level of uric acid, which is the chemical responsible for gout in predisposed individuals. In some people, gout only occurs when they are drinking. The byproducts of alcohol are excreted preferentially to the byproducts of uric acid, raising their levels, in some people raising them markedly. People with gout should not use alcohol, or drink very sparingly.See 1 more doctor answer
Gout diet: Generally, I recommend patients avoid or severely cut down on red meats, organ meats, shellfish. Also you should avoid or severely reduce alcohol, soda intake as these often cause a diuretic effect (makes you urinate) which may dehydrate and increase uric acid levels causing gout. Drink plenty of water if exercising. You may want to avoid protein supplements as well.
No and no: Cider does not help with gout and drinking cider vinegar is even worse. Popular websites talk about apple cider vinegar and how it prevents gout. It does not. It strips the enamel from your teeth and burns your esophagus. Other problems can also occur. Vinegar pills are also not safe.See 2 more doctor answers

Gout is high uric: Acid in your body that deposits in a joint causing inflammation. You either underexcrete or overproduce uric acid depending on your particular case. Alcohol is the chief offended but many foods rich in purine are culprits. Cheese and organ meats are the most common. The big toe is the most common joint affected. See a doctor to figure out if a prescription agent is warranted. Cherry juice can help
What crystals cause gout? Is there a particular food or drink I can avoid, to avoid eating or drinking whatever makes the crystals?
Sodium urate crystal: People with gout have an elevated uric acid and this can lead to the production of monosodium urate crystals that can precipitate in the tissues and in the joints and cause the gout attacks. In the susceptible individual alcohol, red meat can worsen this. Fortunately there are medications that can control and bring down the uric acid level and help prevent further attacks.See 2 more doctor answers

Does coffee increase the amount of uric acid in the body? I drink maybe 8 cups per day. Could this be the cause of my gout?
Coffee seems to help: Actually, drinking coffee seems to reduce the risk of gout and is not the cause! See http://www.Arthritis.Org/research/funded-research/research-update/journal-summaries/coffee-gout-risk/ however, diet does have a big effect on gout. For a good summary of ways to reduce risk of gout including diet, supplements and herbs see http://www. Umm. Edu/altmed/articles/gout-000070.Htm.See 2 more doctor answers
