DASH blood pressure diet improves gout


DASH blood pressure diet improves gout
St. Louis American

The DASH diet was designed decades ago to reduce blood pressure, appears to significantly lower uric acid, the cause of gout. DASH, the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, is rich in fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy, and low in sodium, fats and saturated fats. In a study by researchers at Johns Hopkins and Harvard, they found the effect was so strong in some participants that it was nearly comparable to that achieved with drugs specifically prescribed to treat gout.Consuming a lot of red meat and alcohol have long been associated with gout, a disease marked by high levels of uric acid in the blood and whose causes remain somewhat of an enigma despite centuries of investigation. The Hopkins researchers noted that while symptoms of gout outbreaks â severe inflammation and sharp pain in the joints, particularly the base of the big toe â have been linked to elevated uric acid, itâs been unclear exactly what type of diet might lower uric acid and decrease the risk of flare-ups.
