Gouty deposition around joints correlates with seronegative RA: perhaps we are misdiagnosing gouty arthritis as SNRA.
Contrary to longstanding popular (and medical) belief, soy is fine for gout sufferers... till further notice😉
Although soyabean, as a plant protein source is high in purines, it is an alkali-producing food which increases uric acid excretion at the kidneys. This would be a better source of protein than red meats, which are acid-producing.
Gout: Tomatoes bad, Cherries good, Juices/Soda bad, Soya/Tofu good. Are you totally confused?
Well, don't be. The food avoidance minefield is just too complicated to manoeuvre. What's "true" in science today may well be debunked tomorrow. Since only a third of our daily uric acid production comes from the food we eat, and 80-85% gout sufferers are genetically-predisposed under-excretors, this is what I advise my patients: Eat, drink and make merry, but drink lots of water, and take your medications. Merry Christmas, everyone!
