Gout and Diet

Gout and Diet | The Paleo DietGout and Diet Excerpt

Most of our readers are well aware of the metabolic syndrome and the five classic diseases comprising it :

  1. High blood pressure
  2. Type 2 diabetes
  3. Coronary heart disease
  4. Obesity
  5. Dyslipidemia (increased blood triglycerides, increased small dense LDL cholesterol and decreased HDL cholesterol).

An additional disease that frequently occurs in patients with the metabolic syndrome is gout. Consequently it is sometimes considered to be a disease of insulin resistance that is part of the metabolic syndrome. In this issue I will show you why gout often occurs simultaneously with the classic diseases of insulin resistance. More importantly, I will show you how and why current dietary recommendations to treat gout are largely ineffective and that a better nutritional strategy exists to ameliorate or prevent disease symptoms. This dietary strategy is supported not only by recent empirical data, but also by a long trail of evolutionary and genetic evidence which demonstrates how our genome has effectively skirted gout via certain mutations in the face of a high meat diet.
