Does consuming peanut butter cause gout?
Which areas of our bodies are prone to gout?
I preface my answer by stating that I am not a physician. That said, I understand that peanut butter is actually recommended on occasions as a protein substitute for those suffering from gout.
Although diet does play a role in the onset or reoccurence of gout, genetics tends to be the dominant factor. I know, there is not much that we can do about our genetic predisposition, so sticking to the topic of foods, meat, seafood, especially shellfish, and alcohol tend be the substances which contribute to high levels of uric acid in your system, and therefore gout.
You seem to be safe with peanut butter.
Very good answer! Foods do not cause gout, but can aggrivate it. Especially those mentioned above. Gout usually occurs in men, but sometimes can affect women as well, The high uric acid levels, accentuated by some foods, causes the flareups.
Gout is caused by an excess of uric acid in the blood. It tends to go into an injured joint or the lowest point which is the joint in the big toe area. Any food that has a high content of "purines" can add to the possibility of getting gout.
Mushrooms, venison and two that have high purine content. You might Google Purines to find foods that are risky.
Ive been eating peanut butter for years, every day in fact. Thus far I have never had a case of gout, thank goodness, very painful. Gout is caused from high uric acid, from our diet, including rich foods, and beer. The natural way to rid the body of uric acid in numerous ways are eating celery, drinking lemon water, as well as cherries, shown to be effective in kidney stones as well. Celery, and cherry maybe taken in supplement form. I have written an article on the subject of gout, kidney stones, and pain. Hopes this helps
