Gout and Stress

by Brenda

I have had a lot of stress lately, and between my husband having a heart attach, my youngest daughter having surgery in a couple of days, my mom in the hospital 7-8hours away, I got a bout of gout first time for everything eh! I do believe it is the stress. I am a vegan, and do not drink, except water and juices. So no meat except for a small piece of fish the night of my gout attack ( normally I don't eat fish). So I think it is linked to stress. :(

Another Vegan with Gout
by: nick c.

I am 100% Vegan, no meat, no fish, no eggs, no drinking alcohol, no smoking and live a noble lifestyle the best way I know how... BUT I still got gout attack last year... WHY???

First, I must say that I had gout for a long time way before becoming vegetarian 14 years a go and the vegan 3 years a go...

It all started in 1997.. way to long to talk about but it is essential I mention that gout attacks come along ONLY after a long period of STRESS...

Stress is a CATALYST to all the other excuses that we may come up... the REAL truth is simple (as I have noticed my self after so many years and so many instances of very bad gout attacks)

The truth is that some of us do not relieve enough Uric Acid from our system and so it accumulate in out=r joints... then as the first sign of stress... good old gout come alive and make live miserable...

Hope all this helps... and some how we stay free of gout for ever...

Dose of 12000 IU of Vitamin C per day helped me along the way many times if I suspected an attack early enough.... not every one can tolerate that amount so please use it as you find most convenient.

Drink a lot of water and fresh extracted veggies juices helped a lot as well because it helps extracting extra uric acid when urinating...

Best of health to you and all...
