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

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.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
