Good evening, thanks for the question


Purines are naturally produced in the body and are also found in some foods. But if purines are broken down into uric acid, these substances form crystals that accumulate in the joints and cause pain and inflammatory reactions.


One third of uric acid in the body comes from the breakdown of purines from the food and drinks consumed. If someone consumes a lot of foods high in purines, uric acid levels in the body will increase. This condition causes gouty arthritis (arthritis due to gout) or the formation of stones in the kidney.


Foods containing 150-825 mg of purine in every 100 grams of food are classified as high-purine foods and should be avoided in patients with high uric acid.


For fish categories included in the group include sardines, cod, anchovies, mackerel. Fish that are not included in the class of high purine foodstuffs are those that contain a small amount of purine, which is 50-150 mg in every 100 grams of food. Examples are salmon, tuna, adjoining fish, and catfish.


But keep in mind also gout sufferers may consume fish in the medium portion and should not be excessive. Other types of food that can be consumed by people with gout such as bread, cereals, pasta, peanuts, low-fat milk, cheese, yogurt, eggs, whole fruit, and potatoes. Foods to avoid include liver, sardines, bacon, dry seeds, spinach, cauliflower, and mushrooms.


If in doubt you should consult your doctor first so that you can assess the current condition.


Hopefully can help


Wassalam, Dr. Farah
