[Question] ||| "I recently had a gout attack.  Why was I told to decrease my intake of protein?  What does Protein have to do with gout?"

[Answer] ||| "Gout is a form of arthritis that results when uric acid crystals accumulate in large joints (usually the big toe).  Uric acids are one of the by-products of dietary metabolism with protein foods that are rich in a compound called purine.  Generally, the body maintains an even level of uric acid and crystal formation is not a problem for the majority of individuals.  However, for those individuals who have a predisposition to Gout, restricting the intake of purine-rich protein foods could be helpful such as organ meats (liver), sweetbreads, sardines and herring, alcohol and some cheeses."
