 People with high uric acid should avoid these 4 types of food in their diet, otherwise they will easily induce gout

Uric acid refers to a purine metabolite in the human body, which is excreted in the urine.

Under normal circumstances, the human body will produce 600 mg of uric acid every day, and at the same time will excrete 600 mg of uric acid, so that the uric acid value is always in a balanced state.

However, if you eat too much food rich in purine substances, the uric acid value produced in the body will be greater than the uric acid value excreted, which will cause high uric acid.

Therefore, for people with high uric acid, we must pay attention to the regulation of diet, otherwise it is very easy to induce the appearance of gout. Below, I will give you a detailed introduction.

 

Which foods should people with high uric acid stay away from?

1. Foods containing a lot of oxalic acid

For people with high uric acid, some foods rich in oxalic acid must not be ingested, such as shiitake mushrooms, spinach, asparagus, and bamboo shoots.

The purine substances in these vegetables are not very high, but the large amount of oxalic acid contained in the human body will lower the PH value in the blood, and the excess oxalic acid will be excreted in the form of urine. In this way, the excretion of uric acid will be reduced. Will be affected.

Moreover, too much oxalic acid will combine with calcium to form calcium oxalate, and it will precipitate in the body, which can easily cause some stone diseases. If urethral stones or kidney stones are formed, it will further affect the excretion of uric acid in the body, thereby causing the uric acid value to continue to rise.

 

2. Contain a lot of high-cholesterol foods

Many people like to eat some pork liver, foie gras or pork kidney, pig intestine, chicken offal, etc. Although the oil content of these animal organs is not very high, the cholesterol content in these foods is very high.

After entering the human body, it will affect the body’s metabolic function. For people with high levels of uric acid, the excretion of uric acid in the body has already been problematic. If a large amount of animal organs are ingested again, the excretion of uric acid will be lower, which will induce the appearance of gout.

In addition, the purine substances contained in the organs of these animals are very high, which will be decomposed into large amounts of uric acid after ingestion. The human body is unable to quickly metabolize these uric acid, resulting in a continuous increase in uric acid value, which will cause the appearance of gout.

 

3. Contain a lot of high-purine foods

In addition to some animal organs containing high purines, some seafood also contains a lot of purines, such as various shellfish, sardines, anchovies, crabs, and shrimps.

For healthy people, proper consumption of these seafoods will not induce gout. But for people with high uric acid, once overdose, the uric acid value will continue to increase, and it is easy to induce the appearance of gout.

 

In addition, some excessively greasy foods, such as fatty meat, animal fat, hot pot soup, thick broth, and some fried foods.

The purine substances in these foods are also very high, and they are high-calorie, high-fat foods. After entering the body, it will affect the body’s metabolic function, thereby reducing the excretion of uric acid.

 

4. All high-alcohol and high-sugar drinks

All alcoholic beverages and foods rich in alcohol must not be consumed by patients with high uric acid. The ethanol contained in alcohol can cause excessive lactic acid in the body.

Lactic acid can inhibit the excretion of uric acid in the renal tubules, and can also promote the decomposition of purines, causing the blood uric acid value to rise rapidly.

These high-sugar drinks contain very rich additives and sugars. These fructose can prevent the excretion of uric acid and can easily cause an acute attack of gout.

 

All in all, if the uric acid level in the body continues to rise, the above four foods must not be excessive or prohibited.

Otherwise, it is easy to cause an acute attack of gout, which is very harmful to health. In addition, some meats, nuts, and spicy foods should also be taken less frequently.

For three meals a day, you can eat more fresh vegetables and low-sugar fruits. In addition, you should add more water appropriately and cooperate with exercise to quickly eliminate excess uric acid content in the body and achieve the effect of preventing gout.
