Preventing Gout Attacks with Diet

  • Thank you so much Dr. Greger! My dad has gout and I was wondering whether i could somehow add subtitles of my native language (lithuanian) to this video so he could understand?

  • I love your videos Dr. Greger. I have a question regarding h.pylori infection. I have been taking medications(antibiotics) to kill the bacteria, but they keep coming back, and I always feel bloated. What do you think about this issue? Would you recommend the plant-based diet over the antibiotic treatment?

  • thank you for this information.
    i've been completely plant based for over five years but this winter i've started having problems with gout when i eat beans but not mushrooms or other non-bean sources. i've got MCS and i was wondering if that would be a contributing factor. i'm sticking to my 'vegan' diet but i'll continue to avoid or limit legumes.

  • Thank you, Dr. Gregor! My husband had gout since in his twenties and bad enough to be immobile for weeks or months from time to time. Now he's 38, vegan and didn't have any attacks at all for two whole years. However, this past year he started to have inflammation again and walking on crutches (not sure why, could be work stress, but still much better than years before where he couldn't even stand). Now, we are working on this by avoiding oil (we ate a lot of oily foods). He also has RA. Hopefully, a carefully designed vegan diet will help him rid of pain.

  • I just love this guy.
    I am currently reading Dr Geger's book, 'How Not To Die'.
    He is a great writer. The book is as entertaining as it is informative.
    I just finished reading a segment about impatient oxygen molecules pouncing on electrons and turning them into free radicals…. lol
    it was awesome 🙂

  • Further proof humans are herbivores as humans do not produce the enzyme uricase in our saliva like other carnivores do. Hence why lions don't get gout.

  • here is how to get rid of gout: eat a shit load of pro-biotics, especially on those days at the beach when you just finished your 15th stout, and that plate of a dozen oysters… my father has been taking probiotics and coq10 ever since his second really bad out break and hasnt had one since.

  • I got a nasty case of gout one winter in my mid twenties, as a slim and active person. At the time I was eating a diet of mostly beans and some rice. We had no stores nearby so rarely had anything else to eat. I cut back on the beans and it went away never to return even forty years later.

  • 4:35 Just cut out the alcohol and keep the meat, alcohol has many negative effects on the body(mainly pancreas and liver). My Dad had gout many years ago so he stopped drinking and it went away.

  • I had gout at age 30. Went vegetarian shortly thereafter, made a determined effort to stay better hydrated and DID not take any gout preventative medications. I eat plenty of mushrooms, asparagus when in season and NEVER had a gout attack since my first one 21 years ago! I wondered if somehow the purine rich plant foods really did not precipitate a gout attack. This information you have presented in this video does not surprise me. I do eat dairy and raise my own free-ranging hens and roosters for our eggs. I do not eat shellfish but do eat the occasional fish. I do eat a very veggie and fruit rich diet and I run and workout almost daily. Stay away from the meds if you can people!

  • I'm constantly surprised by the depth and breadth of health benefits a Vegan diet provides, but when you think about it from the other way it's not surprising at all that eating things our bodies are not well-adapted to eat would cause a wide array of maladies.

  • I am right now at the tail end of a bad 2-week long gout attack. I am vegan. I was thinking maybe it was beans or oatmeal…? But I will confess. I am a drinker :/. And I'm now having to admit that my nightly cocktail may in fact be the culprit of me having 4 gout attacks in 2 years. Gout is the most painful thing I've EVER experienced….and I've had 4 children all natural. I would literally rather give birth than have a gout flare up. So…I guess I am now a non-drinker. Totally worth it. The pain is horrific!

  • I was limping around with gout in my left big toe for a few weeks, attempting several of the suggested remedies on the different sites. A superb technique is the gout treatment “unique vovom press” (Google it). I took it 2 times a day for two weeks and there`s almost no pain any more. I`m presently on my quest to removing the gout completely, so I`ve lessened my intake to once a day.

  • Within just 72 hours, the gout pain gone away due to this gout treatment method “unique vovom press” (Google it). It really seems to function. For now, I`ll need to keep taking the product to see whether the signs and symptoms will go away or keep coming back. Best item for my gout! There is no need for drugs every day, also. I`m happy I discovered this simply because my body system has become capable of many every day tasks!
