I have been suffering from Gout for the past 5 years now. I have recently managed to get the gout attacks under control as my doctor has prescribed that I take one puricos tablet a day.
Since then I have been very active in the gym and started weightlifting and bodybuilding.

As I understand the effects of puricose, is that it removes excess uric acid from the blood and therefore minimizes the probability of a gout attack. My question is – will the puricos negate my bodybuilding targets due to reduced intake of protein. Protein is necessary for muscle growth. if this is the situation, then is there an acceptable protein supplement that can be recommended that will not aggravate gout?

Thanks.
