Low-fat dairy products like yoghurt are low in purines while also being a good source of protein and calcium.
Coffee is another food which has been linked with having a protective effect against gout development, as, like cherries, it reduces levels of purine in the blood. It is also a source of antioxidants which can reduce inflammation within the body.
Has anybody successfully treated gout with diet? My O/H has recently been diagnosed and the medication is making him ill, he has just changed meds but would rather not take any at all.ThanksMrs_Bx
