I'm older than most of you and gout runs in my family so that's two strikes against me. I was diagnosed with it last week. I don't eat the stuff usually associated with it (liver, booze, etc) but you can get it from too much Protein (my surgery was about 6 months ago). So I'm dipping down from 70 grams per day to 60, and cutting out any red meat. Just a warning ... if your foot begins to really hurt, this could be the problem for you, too.

I have gout and it is in the big toe joint. I think it depends on the person because I did not cut back on any Protein and I'm in my 3rd week.I know u can still have flair ups however my foot doctor said the more weight I lose the better it will get :) thank god we r on this journey :) I wish u all the best :)

but you can get gout from too much Protein

LBM

I've also suffered with gout :angry:

thats very interesting what you said about too much Protein being a problem. I never heard that before.

Do to my diabetes, i see my podiatrist every 10 weeks., insurance covers my toe nails being cut, but no manicure :lol:

I know there are certain foods i shouldn't eat. Don't remember what though :(

the protein thing sounds important, so i will definitely talk to my dr. about.

thanx for the info

the more weight I lose the better/less chance that gout will occur :)

I seriously never knew that weight loss would decrease the chance of getting gout.

One more benefit to losing weight with the help of our infamous sleeve :)

weight loss effects so many different health issues.

according to my mother, if i would lose more weight, i wouldn't get a hangnail :lol:

thanx

My cardiologist told me to watch my sodium, phosphates and and potassium for gout. he did not mention Protein, though.

I have been on the preop diet for about 3 weeks. I have had gout in the past and now with all the Protein I am having a flare up in the arch of my foot and I really am starting to ache all over. This is horrible. I heard cherries help ( fresh or dried).

This is very definitely something to talk with your surgeon about PRE surgery. Are you taking maintenance meds for gout now? Maybe she'll start you on them. I am doing better now but staying even more hydrated, but we're all so different. Let me know ... I'll be thinking about you.

I'm a young'un and I had gout POST surgery. My surgeon says its common or at least not unusual. I thinks it's caused by the combination of surgery trauma, dehydration, and starvation. My PCP gave me colchicine and it hasn't flared up again, but I'm still dealing with some residual pain and mobility issues.

If you are using whey protien, the protien is not the culprit. I also suffer from gout,

Unfortunately, it is an effect that comes from rapid weight loss. It triggers a gout attack.

You can get tart Cherry juice at your local health food store, it will help, but remember it is high in sugar so, don't drink a lot at one time.

Also you can get a Uric Aid cleanse in capsulet form.

The good news here is, with our new lifestyle and eating habits, once you flush the excess Uric acid from your system gout should just be a bad memory.

Edit: just notice you are pre op, disregard the statement about limiting the cherry juice, and if you are getting protien from red meat that can definately be a contributing factor. But, whey contains no Uric acid. Also, are you a drinker, because drinking alcohol also contributes to gout.

I have been using whey Protein. I have also been eating chicken and tuna. I quit drinking almost 2 months ago. I got the cherry juice and raw apple cider vinegar and it has helped. Gotta lay off that though because the label says stop 2 weeks before surgery. I will call my nurse in the morning. Thx for your response.

Now that I am post op the gout is from hell. I have not had an attack like this in many years. It laughs at cherry juice. On alpurinol and steroids. If this doesn't work I may need to have my foot removed.

I agree it SUCKS!! And it was the worst attack I've had, but keep in mind this could very well be tha last gout attack you ever experience. When mine hit I was eating naproxen like candy for two weeks just so it wouldn't throb even staying off of it. Just keep up on the uric acid cleanse. My feet feel better now than anytime in my memory.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
