Reply To: Vegan diet for gout

Keith Taylor

Alkaline diet is generally good for gout. It promotes uric acid excretion. But, how do we know if that is what you need?

Anyone seeking to control gout by diet and lifestyle improvements should get their uric acid excretion rate tested.

Have you ever discussed that with your doctor, David?

There are aspects of vegan diet that might be bad for gout. Are you taking any supplements, David, that might mitigate these effects?

Why on earth would you give up spinach!??!

That’s three questions, but the most important is: What are your recent uric acid test results?

I’m glad you’re recovering from heart problems. Now, let’s tackle the gout!
