In this video, Dr. Berg talks about dietary proteins and gout. Uric acid is a byproduct of protein and when it gets too high in the blood, it can precipitate out and settle into certain joints that could cause various inflammation. The real problem with gout is that you are not able to eliminate the uric acid which means the problem is with the kidneys.
Foods High in Purines
• Organ meats
Facts about Uric Acid
1. Over 60% of uric acid in the body comes from your own body and NOT in the diet.
2. 90% of people with gout have the problem of eliminating uric acid and only 10% produce too much uric acid.
Why uric acid spike while doing the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting?
• It spikes only on a temporary basis and goes away after the adaptation process because uric acid is a major antioxidant made internally to help clean up and heal certain things in the body.
