Warning, plenty of anecdotal evidence (BroScience) based on a sample group of 1 person – me.
My gout has been pretty controlled recently, still on Allupurinol but Naproxen usage has reduced significantly, just because I am getting less acute gout attacks.
I personally put this down primarily to losing over 20kg/44lbs in weight.
From drinking as much as 6 to 8 litres of water per day, I have dropped water intake to 3 to 5 litres and it hasnt had any noticeablea negative effects. My theory is that too much water leaches out all the good minerals/compounds from your body, some of these having a positive effect in controlling your gout. Since doing that I noticed I am also less susceptible to colds etc. Another positive is that I have to use the toilet less!
Supplements wise, have been on this combo for last few months:
Vitamin D3 (5,000 iu daily, 5 days a week), 500mg Krill Oil, 200mg Magnesium Bisglycinate daily, 25mg zinc picolinate and 1000mg Curcumin C3 complex.
Not sure how much these help but shit is going well at the moment and if it ain’t broke, why try fixing it?
Consuming red meat in moderation and when I can, I will try to buy grass fed beef. I personally find I can tolerate this better gout wise, the problem is that grass fed usually means more expensive. Sometimes Westin Gourmet has it in for £1 per 400g pack which I bulk buy and freeze.
