Hi there,
does anyone know why broccoli triggers gout? If you look at some diets, they actually call it a cure! But it just brings it on! I was hoping someone could tell me why. :? :!:

How much you have to eat broccoli to trigger gout attacks? What else you ate with it?

Broccoli is higher than most vegetables in uric acid (ua) content. But as compared with meat and seafood, it's rather small. I haven't seen a study that shows broccoli can actually triggers gout. Uric acid (ua) content of some foods per 100 grams are: broccoli-80 mg; tuna-260, sardines in oil-480; liver (beef)-550; beef-130; chicken-120, pork-140; apple-15, banana-60, broccoli-80, spinach-60, kale-50, asparagus-25, cabbage 22, potato-16, lettuce-13, tomato-11, cherry (sweet)-7, bread-14; beer-8~13.

There are other food and drink that contains no ua but can raise the blood ua level and trigger gout, e.G., alcohol, fructose, acidic foods and drinks, etc.

I just started a high intake of theramic vegetables trying to loose weight. I have also just recently been diagnosed with gout. I have been doing well with little or no symptoms of gout until I began eating the broccoli. My family physician said that "old fashioned" veggies would cause an attack. Can anyone tell me what veggies these are? The diet that I chose consist of okra, cauliflower, beets, all the "older foods" is this why sudden gout attack?

Flax seed powder can prevent the gout attack some extent, but as I mentioned earlier, only proven natural remedy is Cherry. But unfortunately we can get Cherry in the market only at the !**@! end of April in India.

Is there any other country , Cherry fruit available now in March ?

i use dried cherry fruits, which are available year round. also good is bottled cherry juice, which i find in the larger grocery stores. Both are available year round. when fresh cherries are available, i get them and love them, but alas, they are only available a couple of months each year.

Gout Treatment - Try Celery
A friend of mine says that celery provides more relief for her mother who suffers from gout than cherries. I don't suffer from gout, but my husband does, and I have been unsuccessful in trying to get him to eat lots of celery when he has gout issues, but my friend swears that it works as well if not better.
