    1. Foods that contain low levels of purine makes for a gout-friendly diet.

      * Although refined carbohydrates in the form of white bread, pasta and noodles are safe to eat for gout sufferers because of low purine content but too much consumption can cause a rapid rise in blood sugar and increase one’s risk of developing metabolic syndrome and diabetes. Whole grain breads and whole grain pasta are healthier than refined carbohydrates, but since they contain moderate amounts of purine, they should be eaten occasionally.
      * Low-fat milk and low-fat yogurt
      * Fruits high in vitamin C such as oranges, tangerines, papaya and cherries. Apples, pears, pineapples, avocados are low-purine fruits and therefore can be eaten in moderation.
      * Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water every day
      * Coffee and tea are safe for gout sufferers.

      Gout-friendly proteins include eggs, nuts, seeds and cold-water fish. Avoid proteins with very high purine concentrations such as organs, seafood and shellfish, and meats like venison, sausages and bacon.
