What are good foods for gout?

Gout can be very painful. Gout is a type of arthritis that typically goes to your big toe. With gout, you have a protein metabolism problem, and you form monosodium urate hydrate crystals. These crystals build up in the joint, and they start creating a lot of inflammation. You’ll also have high uric acid. Both of these are undigested protein that turns into these little crystals. 

Gout is really a kidney problem. It can actually occur from eating too many cooked foods. Pre-cooked or overly cooked foods can start to destroy the function of the kidneys and liver. These are the organs that process and clean up proteins.
