I am pretty sad to say that I have developed a pretty bad case of gout. It is pretty unfortunate, because it hurts more than anything I have ever been through before, and it makes so many simple tasks extremely difficult. It is no way to live, and I think that I am going to try to change my diet to get rid of the problem. I want to know is milk, yogurt and cheese good or bad for gout? I have heard some conflicting information on the subject.
I was talking with one of my friends about it, and he said that it was probably bad for gout, because dairy products have been known to increase inflammation. However, I guess while that might be generally true, it is not the case for gout. That is because it increases the excretion of uric acid, which is the culprit behind gout. I am excited to learn this, because I really like dairy products, and it should not be that difficult for me to increase my consumption of them in order to help with the battle against gout.
But that is not the only change I want to make. I also want to identify foods that help to contribute to gout and eliminate them from my diet. I really do not know which foods cause gout. However, I really hope that it won’t be any foods that I really like. Though, considering I have gout, I would guess that there is something I eat fairly frequently which is bad for you and is known to cause gout. I am going to figure out what it is though, because I do not want to have this gout problem get even worse on me. I am fear of the debilitation that it can cause people.
