WTH??? Gout??? I thought only old people got the gout!

Well now that I eat more red meat and protein gout has invaded my hands! OMG it's not nice. Apparently another side affect from a low carb diet. Since doing hcg and loosing 30 pounds I do not eat a lot of carbs and have definitely increased the amount of protein I used to eat.

Note to others please keep your water intake up and continue to eat lots of fresh greens and fresh fruits to avoid this happening to you. Sour cherry juice is helping and I've tripled my water intake again and have to lay off the red meat. I was eating a steak about every 3rd day and some sort of meat everyday along with cheese and dairy. Not good for the uric acid level in the blood stream without a large intake of water I"m told.

The uric acid inflames joints usually big toe first but for me went straight to my hands. So bad I could not make a fist or extend my fingers completely for three days. ouch... Oh and BTW no alcohol or sugar during a flair up I'm told. Fun holiday weekend for me.

Lettuce, cherries, watermelon and water....maybe some blueberries and oatmeal. Good news....coffee helps the gout!

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday.

    Thanks for this info. That is so helpful to know as I am a red meat lover and I seem to do well with it. I'll be sure to keep up my drinking (of water that is).
