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
• Veal
• Turkey
• Venison
• Sardines/Fish

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.

  1. Ok Dr.Eric Berg .Could you please suggest me that can I drink ACV? I have been suffering with psoriasis skin disease under my feet…Psoriasis is a dangerous and almost undiscovered and mysterious skin disease that scientists can't discovered yet its absolute cure or medicine until now.
    If I soak my feet in warm water with ACV does it bring any good result for me? Or it may provide negative side effects for my feet? You are a doctor and also specialist of APPLE CIDER VINEGAR DOSES. Please give me any good news. I have been suffering with this nightmare last 16 years.

  2. My husband just got home from a 2 day hospital stay from severe gout in his knee!! His uric acid was low!!! He needs to heal his insulin resistance more. Been keto and IF for a few months. Down 34lbs but more to go!! It was horrible for him. Morphine wouldn't even touch the pain.

  3. Dr Eric, there's a nice NHANES paper on uric acid levels between quintiles of protein intake. Difference only occurs between the 1st and 5th quintile of protein intake. However, it's an FFQ study.

  4. Dr. Berg, I would like you to explain about oxalates. English is not my native language, I understand it but I like how you explain all the topics and I have no doubts

  5. I have a son with Down Syndrome that started getting Gout about 7 years ago. I have had to google and learn as much as I can on my own because 1) regular drs. really don't know much unless a test gives them the answer (I kept being told that my son couldn't be having a Gout attack because his foot wasn't red, so no blood test was done, but they did have him x-rayed to see if he broke something lol and 2) I believe in natural medicine and believe that almost all ailments can be cured by diet if you can figure it out.

    So, over the years of course the first thing I did was limit his meat, but after I read that High Fructose Corn Syrup is real bad for Gout, I started buying him only real sugar pop and only letting him have one a day if he exercises, which I eventually started mixing a seltzer water in his pop so he gets like 2/3 water and 1/3 real sugar pop. Then he eventually started getting these big sores under his belly, which I call yeast sores after researching and deciding that his gut is messed up from years ago when he used to drink a gallon of milk a day, then I stopped that, but he got way too much pop, and then had pneumonia twice one winter and 3 antibiotics. Shortly after the antibiotics, he was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, which I also believe is from his messed up gut.

    After the sores started, I had come across Candida, and figured that he probably had that and leaky gut. I had also changed his dr. who tested his Uric acid levels, which were high, so was his Glucose, and he had low vitamin D and low HDL. So, for awhile I went gluten free and put him on many supplements, including high doses of probiotics (25 billion twice a day). He lost weight and went over a year without sores or a Gout attack, but life happened and I slowly slacked until his weight was back up and problems started again. It doesn't help that his dad is a total sugarholic, loves pop, meat, and cookouts every chance he gets, but ultimately I am incharge of my son mostly now, so it is my fault.

    But anyway, back to researching again, and I had come across the fact that fructose puts off uric acid. I never thought about my son having Insulin Resistance, and it would be too difficult to test him for that. But I have it, and the way that I got it was from becoming a Vegetarian years ago when I barely liked any vegetables or beans lol (I've learned to like pretty much all vegetables and beans now). So too many carbs did it to me, which once again, I couldn't get a dr. to believe to do the test 20 years ago (I actually was told that I wasn't fat enough lol because I was only like 120, but that was up 10 lbs that I could no longer lose no matter what I did). So I just believed it on my own until years later when I finally did get a dr. to give me a 3 hour glucose test. I would have diabetes by now, if I listened to my conventional drs. I no longer eat or drink anything sweet and won't do carbs unless they have high fiber in them. I think of all the carbs that my son gets at times. He loves pizza and wants one for every holiday and birthday that we celebrate, and sometimes that is a lot of holidays close together. He usually ends up with at least a sore under his belly around the holidays.

    I am now concentrating on trying to heal his gut. It really is difficult because he is 25 and can get his own food if I don't fill him up with healthy veggie foods before he gets hungry. Everytime I start certain supplements back, like Oregano oil or high doses of probiotics, his kidneys become overloaded with toxins, which then cannot clear out all of the uric acid, which has given him both a Gout attack and a sore under his belly before. So, it isn't always that you ate something that caused more uric acid, but can be because you added some supplement or something like sauerkraut and your kidneys are being overloaded by clearing out too many toxins. I'm looking into bone broth now since that is supposed to be good for healing a leaky gut. I am also looking into essential oils that supposedly can help. One of these days, I am determined to cure him, but I surely welcome any suggestions. Just keep in mind that he has Down Syndrome which makes him like dealing with a little kid. He has no clue that he should ALWAYS eat only healthy things. He knows he gets absolutely no junk or meat when he has an attack, but as soon as he is better, he says "better now. Junk now." lol

  6. Thank you so much for this. I have suffered terribly from gout in my big toe and my ankle which resulted in the need for foot reconstructive surgery. I had it very bad. They tried to irrigate it away and then chip away at the crystals while the ankle was opened up.

  7. I'll tell it to my bunions, Doc. Meat and such seem to hobble me up, and I can't get past that first chew and the realization of what I just chewed…lol…..been like that all my life…..fasting does help, though. My Dad ate tons of meat and he always struggled with gout, but he died of Diabetic related complications, so, you're the Doc and sure would know. Ya always make me think, Doc. Thanks and have great week! 🙂

  8. dr.we have as Muslims cure for sciatica & disc herniated related to it in just 3 days immediately & I saw & speak with a lot of people who try this miracle remedy they have come back to there health as they were before literally . What I hope you to do for humanity is to discover the combination of this amazing drug..the recipe is drinking lamb tail every morning before eating by dividing the tail to three equals pieces but the only condition to be effective is to find a lamb that only eats from grassland not by feeding it with your barehand that what prophet Muhammad has told us & we find it on reality land instantly .

  9. How can we factor in a calorie deficit intermittent fasting while having more than average uric acid levels? Anyone with any idea.. please share. Thanks. 🙂

  10. i was wondering if you could make a video in rebuttal to Dr. McDougall saying keto and low carb diets are very dangerous and bad for your health. Maybe he's referring in the long term and not short-term but he's really saying is all meat, dairy is bad for health.
