What cabbage can I eat with gout?
Described as yet by Hippocrates and named because of unbearable bouts of pain "footstrap", gout has long been considered a disease of the stronger sex. Now it is increasingly affected by women working on a par with men and receiving an equal to them a fraction of the nervous and physical overload.
Statistics also indicate the "Damocles sword" of heredity: 30% of patients in the genus had cases of gout.
Among the famous "gout" - Julius Caesar, Winston Churchill, Rubens, Krylov, Charlie Chaplin. It is no accident that the disease is associated with a certain style of life: those who do not know the measures in libations and plentiful feasts fall into the risk group.
- diet, overloaded with purine substances;
- the use of medicines of diuretic action;
- age over 40 years.
No one has completely managed to get rid of gout attacks, but it is possible to significantly weaken the grip of the "trap".
To do this, you need to change the attitude to nutrition, remembering what we eat in order to live, and not vice versa and adhere to a diet that excludes or restricts foods with purines. It is allowed to use the whole range of dairy products, eggs, fruits, nuts, porridges, and sauerkraut is recommended as a prophylactic. In the absence of contraindications it is useful to drink more liquid( up to 2.5 liters per day) and reduce salt intake.
The restriction applies to all types of smoked products, meat and fish dishes, drinks from coffee, cocoa. Chocolate and yeast are very harmful. Vegetarians from the diet exclude spinach, legumes, mushrooms, cauliflower, which is a "black sheep" in its family. All the other 35 varieties of cabbage have a curative effect and are included in the list of compulsory products for this disease.
Delicious cabbage leaf
By normalizing the disturbed metabolism and restoring the acid-base balance, cabbage removes excess salts from the body, depriving the gout of the diluting weapon - uric acid.
The leader of the cabbage rating is sea kale, which is recommended to be included in the daily diet. It is good, both in solo performance, and in the composition of different salads.
Throat of sea kale are also used in the form of powder: stirring in a glass of water half a teaspoon, the received drink is taken with gout once a day, but not more than one month.
When removing pain, sea kale is used as a compress. Soaked leaves are applied to gouty buds. The procedure has positive properties and will promote the resorption of salt deposits. Algae is also used for baths. The time of its adoption and use of compresses is up to 20 minutes.
Sea cabbage is recommended to include in the daily diet of patients with gout
Moderation and accuracy of
It should be remembered that the use of even the simplest and most common products can have an individual intolerance. Therefore, before starting treatment should consult with your doctor and jointly decide what you can eat, and what should be discarded. Strict adherence to the advice of a doctor and monitoring compliance with the rules of nutrition leads to a gradual relief within the first month.
In the first week, a failure factor in the form of an exacerbation may appear, but then a noticeable improvement of the condition will necessarily occur.
An agent that well dulls the feeling of hunger is the infusion of kelp that is obtained by filling it with cold water and insisting for a day. To reduce appetite, just 2-3 sips just before each meal.
Reducing the intake of salt is one of the rules in the treatment, and in this connection it is advisable to refer to the recipes of our grandmothers, sour cabbage salt-free way.
Under the heavy yoke
One enameled bucket is taken:
- 6 kg of white cabbage;
- 2 kg carrots;
- 0.5 cups of dill seed;
- 3-4 bay leaves.
Shredded cabbage and carrots are mixed together with spices in a bucket and put under pressure. In this case, it should be quite heavy, weighing 17-20 kg.
Under such a weight, vegetables quickly, within a day, give juice. Then oppression is changed to lightweight - up to 3 kg and wait another day. Saltless cabbage is stored in glass jars in the refrigerator. To taste it is a little softer than traditional, which is only a plus for a sparing diet.
When serving on the table instead of oil, you can grind sunflower seeds in a coffee grinder and add them to cabbage, which will enhance the taste and useful properties. What diet is recommended for gout?
The basis for the development of gout is the accumulation in the body of salts of uric acid( urate), which leads to the characteristic clinical manifestations. During the treatment of this disease, preparations of various groups are used. However, all these medicines will not bring the desired result if the patient does not follow the diet for gout. A balanced diet with severe nutritional restrictions in this disease is not only desirable, but also vitally important.
Basic principles of the
diet Complex treatment of gout provides three main directions:
- Acceleration of excretion of urate from the body;
- Obstruction of their formation in the body;
- Prevention of urate intake.
If the first two tasks are addressed in the course of appropriate drug therapy, then the latter - through a special diet for gout. After all, a significant part of urate enters our body from the outside, with food. Although, to be more precise, food products contain not urate, but purine bases, or simply purines.
What are purines from the chemical point of view, and what is their biological role in the human body. These are non-protein nitrogenous compounds that come with the composition of nucleic acids - DNA and RNA.Nucleic acids are carriers of genetic information that play a key role in the synthesis of protein and provide its species specificity. In addition to nucleic acids, purines are part of ATP, the cleavage of which releases a large amount of energy. In addition, purines are included in many enzymes that provide metabolism( metabolism) - proteins, carbohydrates, fats and minerals. Purines enter the structure of many biogenic stimulants, including Caffeine and Riboxin.
Part of purines are synthesized in our body, and part comes from food. The need for an organism in these compounds is not that great. In time, purines also undergo cleavage. The product of this cleavage is uric acid. Splitting of proteins in the human body does not lead to increased formation of uric acid. Thus, uric acid is not a pathological compound. Moreover, it has the properties of an antioxidant, and in normal amounts prevents damage to cells.
Surplus of uric acid in healthy people is excreted from the body by the kidneys. Gout develops not because of increased intake of purines in the body, but because of a disruption of excretion of uric acid. Nevertheless, the diet is the key to the successful treatment of this disease. True, this compound is poorly soluble in water. Therefore, uric acid is transformed into urate salts to successfully excrete urine. Urates dissolve well in alkaline environment, and in acidic form an organic sediment in the form of concrements - kidney stones. Therefore, with gout, the diet should provide not only an obstacle to the intake of purines, but also alkalinization of urine, the exclusion of products that promote its acidification.

Signs of gout in men
It is believed that gout is banned food, rich in animal protein and easily digestible carbohydrates. Yes this is true. But the point here is not only in the increased amount of proteins and carbohydrates. The point is that the formation of protein and carbohydrate compounds takes place under the control of purines. Therefore, a large number of proteins in food are often combined with a large number of purines. Rapid growth of certain tissues of animals leads to an increase in the number of cells. The more cells - the more contained in them nucleic acids, and, accordingly, purines.
Based on this, the meat of animals taken from the lower extremities contains more purine than the breast. Pork has more purines than beef. In most diets, the meat of young animals is preferable to the old ones. However, in the case of gout, the young meat is to some extent even worse than the old one. After all, in young individuals muscle grows, the number of muscle cells, and along with them - purine bases, increases. In the process of cooking meat, purines quickly become broth. Therefore, all broths and meat jelly with gout are contraindicated. But low-fat dietary meat is allowed, but in small quantities. Animal proteins( and vegetable ones, too), though not purine compounds, are still contraindicated in gout. Intermediate products of protein decay have an acid reaction, which, as already mentioned, is highly undesirable for gout.
Just like dietary meat, a little boiled fish is allowed. But fatty, salted fish, fish caviar for gout - all this is prohibited. When gout is not allowed to take any smoked meat and canned food, both meat and fish. Other forbidden foods are the tongue, liver and brain of animals, which also contain a large amount of purine. Salt for gout is allowed only in small quantities, and therefore any kind of pickles, including vegetables, should be excluded from the menu. In this regard, salted cheese is also not allowed. In addition to salt, any dishes with gout with the contents of spices, spices, products containing preservatives are forbidden.
About mushrooms, pi gout, there are opposing points of view. It is believed that mushrooms grown in artificial conditions are contraindicated because of the presence of preservatives. Mushrooms collected in the forest are allowed for food, but in small quantities. The same applies not only to whole mushrooms, but also any mushroom dishes, including broths, soups
Among products rich in vegetable protein - soy( green peas, beans, soybeans), the reception of which is contraindicated for gout. Turnip, tomatoes, parsley, asparagus, radish, sorrel, spinach - all this with gout should, if not completely eliminate, then at least limit as much, since these products contain oxalic acid, acidifying urine. Coffee, strong tea containing caffeine, is uniquely excluded from the diet, just like chocolate and chocolate sweets. Grapes help increase the acidity of urine and are therefore banned in this disease. For the same reason, people who suffer from gout should not drink wine. In general, with this disease for any alcoholic beverages must be imposed a hard taboos.
Fats do not contain purines. However, overweight burdens the course of gout. Therefore, with this disease should limit the reception of white bread, confectionery, any product containing a large number of animal fats.
What can I eat?
After such a huge list of prohibited products, the question is quite logical: what kind of food is allowed? It should be noted that the food products allowed for gout are numerous. Classical diet is based on vegetarian unroasted soups and porridges - buckwheat, rice, wheat. Macaroni are also allowed. In addition, when gout is allowed:
- Vegetables - squash, eggplant, cabbage, potatoes, carrots;
- Boiled meat diet - preferably a rabbit, a bird;
- Dairy products - milk, sour cream, kefir, milk jelly, cottage cheese, unsalted cheese;
- Bread - rye, bran;
- Drinks - fruit juices, jelly, compote of dried fruits, alkaline mineral waters( Borjomi, Essentuki).
All these products formed the basis for dietary recommendations for gout in the general diet system developed by the scientist-dietician Pevzner. In this system, two diets are recommended for gout.
According to the recommendations of dietitians, during a gout exacerbation the diet consists only of plant foods - all animal products are completely excluded
Diet №6 assumes:
- Elimination of foods rich in purines from the food ration;
- Salt restriction;
- Restriction of proteins and fats;
- Reception of boiled meat, poultry, fish;
- Presence in the diet of dairy products, fruit compotes, juices, vegetables.
Similar characteristics have a diet number 8, aimed at fighting the frequent companion of gout - obesity. In this diet - low-calorie, mainly vegetable food, with the complete exception of fats, sweets, flour products.
Oatmeal porridge is an excellent remedy for cleansing the intestines. The product is low-calorie, is included in the diet for many diseases, and gout is no exception.
With gout, the diet is not characterized by strict technological rules - there is always a field for improvisation. Numerous recipes for gout are developed.
Rice with apples
Boil 75 g of rice in 150 g of milk. The resulting porridge is during the day, in 3 divided doses together with 250 g of apples.
Boil 180 g of beet until half cooked, grate. Add the same amount of potatoes, 80 g of carrots, 50 g of onions and 160 g of cabbage. Cook, season with sour cream.
Cut the onions into rings and fry in vegetable oil. Then add the diced carrots, lightly put out, then add to the pan boiled potatoes, eggplant.
Grate 10 peeled potatoes, add 3 raw eggs and 2-3 crushed cloves of garlic. All this mix, squeeze the water and fry in a frying pan in the form of cutlets.
All these and other dishes should be consumed with a large amount of liquid - at least 2 liters.per day in the absence of contraindications from the kidneys. It is necessary to arrange a split meal 5-6 times a day in small portions. It is desirable to arrange occasional days off.
Of course, gourmets with gout will be hard - many delicacies will have to be abandoned completely. But a full-fledged diet with a variety of delicious dishes will largely be able to compensate for gastronomic costs in the treatment of this disease.
Features of nutrition for gout
Not only a constant diet distinguishes food for gout, but also some subtleties that enhance the therapeutic effect. For patients with gout, everything that goes into food matters.
Gout suggests moderation in food and the avoidance of overeating. Food should be divided into small portions throughout the day. A good positive effect is the introduction of regular unloading days( every three to four days).Rice with gout, along with baked apples, can make a full-fledged diet on such days. Recipes are extremely simple.
Rice - an approximate amount of 80 gr. Boils in milk, strains.
Apples - an approximate amount of 300 gr. Bake in the oven with a few berries of cranberries, beaten with a blender, mixed with rice.
You can add a couple of spoons of honey. Eat during the day, washed down with juice or compote.
You can arrange fruit unloading, when all day long only fruits are eaten.
Apples, bananas, kiwi, citrus, berries cranberries. For unloading, you can use both a mix and a single fruit, consumed all day.
You can - fermented milk or vegetable. Salads dressed with sauce, which includes vinegar, vegetable oil and garlic with sesame seeds, will perfectly satisfy the hunger and help clean the intestines, and the added dandelion leaf will replenish the microelements. Young baked potatoes are also effective on days of unloading. As a liquid it is worth trying an infusion: a leaf of cranberries and a leaf of raspberries in equal parts, is poured with boiling water and insists in warmth. Infusion has a good diuretic and anti-inflammatory effect, which helps to cleanse the body and remove harmful deposits.
Fasting, like overeating, should be ruled out. The fight against overweight, which is an aggravating factor for gout, should not include even a short-term hunger strike. Such an emergency weight loss will only increase the production of urinary salts and sharply worsen the condition of patients with gout. Wellness, diet and moderation, along with unloading days, will gradually bring back to normal weight, without stress for the body. Replacing the usual spices with ginger will not only improve the taste of fresh dishes and diversify recipes, but also reduce the feeling of hunger.
Do not eat before going to bed. Let a minimum of two hours pass from meals to bedtime. At the same time, you should allow yourself vegetable dishes for dinner, and leave meat, potatoes, eggs and cheese for another time. Evening meals should be easy. Before you go to bed you can drink a jelly or compote of dried fruits.
One meal can replace nuts: walnuts, forest, cedar nuts, perfectly satisfy hunger and contain amino acids, oils and trace elements in large quantities. Harvesting nuts is an optimal snack.
A complete purification of the body with the excretion of urate( uric acid salts) is impossible without the use of a sufficient amount of liquid. With gout, the diet provides for a drinking balance. Approximate daily amount of liquid should reach 2 - 3 liters. All sorts of fruit juices are welcome( it is necessary to take into account the ban on grapes), fruit cocktails from currant berries, currants, gooseberries, compotes from dried fruits. Brews of wild rose and herbal teas are shown. Tea from leaves: a leaf of a cowberry, a sheet of a currant, a leaf of a raspberry. Dry raw materials in equal parts are brewed in the usual way. The cranberry leaf contains flavonoids, vitamins and tannins, which have an anti-inflammatory effect, and a leaf of raspberry and currant is an excellent diuretic. The general effect is expressed in the increased excretion of harmful deposits and in the reduction of inflammatory processes in joints in patients with gout.
Still mineral water with high alkali content - it is possible. Salty aerated mineral water - you can not. Freshly squeezed vegetable juices, for which you can use young potatoes, carrots, cabbage( colored and broccoli is prohibited), cucumber, make up for the need for vitamins and trace elements. This is an important indicator, because the products allowed for gout are not fully able to meet the body's need for these substances.
Ginger has the ability to dissolve urea and remove it from the body. Ginger, brewed like tea and taken daily, has a powerful positive effect. As confirmation of the merits of this curative root, is the fact that ginger is added to medicines.
All products that allow a diet for gout should be fresh. Aging causes the destruction of the vitamin "E" necessary for a complete metabolism. Beans, cauliflower, grapes, soy sauce, fat cheese, contain this useful element in large quantities. Unfortunately, they are contraindicated, because they are very rich in purines. Potatoes, eggs, rice with gout, foods that are less enriched with trace elements, but which can be useful with regular use. Even simple recipes and simple products can be turned into a small masterpiece, if you try.
Garlic, vinegar and ginger should be the main condiments. With their help, you can not only improve the taste of food, but also maintain the health of patients with gout. The content of trace elements and other nutrients in these products is simply "off scale", which makes them especially coveted in the menu. Garlic, ginger, vinegar are the true friends of gout.
Preparation of products based on minimal heat treatment. The fried food is excluded. All dishes are steamed, boiled or baked. There should be no hurry, thoroughly chewing every piece. Hasty swallowing will complicate the work of the stomach and significantly reduce the usefulness of the menu.
Food for gout means a large number of diluted ingredients: soups, borsch, first dairy products, sauces, juices. One of the variants of the salad is fresh, the recipes of which may differ in the composition of the ingredients, but they are the same in preparation: tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, kiwi, greens, garlic, etc., beat in a blender, vinegar or lemon juice, sesame seeds are added. It turns out something in between vegetable mashed potatoes and juice with pulp. Fast, simple, tasty, useful. An excellent option for a snack. It is the increased content of liquid in the menu that increases the excretion of sediment from the body. This nutrition is optimal for gout, because this disease progresses due to excessive accumulation of urea.
Sample menu for the day
As an option, the daily menu can differ in variety and look something like this:
Breakfast. Salad of fresh vegetables, dressed with sauce or fresh. Boiled egg, cheese( a slice on rye bread), ginger tea.
Lunch. Baked potatoes with boiled meat and tomato sauce. Compote.
Dinner. Milk porridge, banana. Leaf tea.
Breakfast. Fruit salad( any fruit, exception - grapes) dressed with yogurt. Sandwich made of rye bread with butter( spread, not apply) broth of wild rose.
Lunch. Lenten soup or borsch( only on water).Baked fish with vegetables. Juice or infusion.
Dinner. Cottage cheese. Kissel.
Breakfast. Milk porridge. Boiled egg. Juice.
Lunch. Potatoes baked with fish and vegetables. Tomato juice.
Dinner. Vinaigrette( beans are excluded).Kissel or compote.
Which dishes are daily, and what to pamper yourself, depends on the preferences and reactions of the body. If you apply a little imagination even following the recommendations and following a diet, you can have a full, varied, useful menu.
Gout - diet: permitted and prohibited productsIMPORTANT TO KNOW!Doctors are dumbfounded! The pain in the joints is FOREVER!Just before bedtime. .. Read on - & gt;
Factors leading to the development of gout are: inadequacy;lack of clean, fresh air and an unfavorable ecological situation;disturbed drinking regimen. But the most important factor is malnutrition. The disease, unfortunately, is incurable, but the condition can and should be stabilized with the help of a diet. By giving up a number of foods and eating other healthy foods, you can alleviate the symptoms of gout.
General principles of the diet for gout
Gout - symptoms, treatment and diet is an extensive field of medical research, which it is not difficult to familiarize with.
However, there is still a common perception that gout is a disease of glutton, and it is enough not to overeat, to give up fatty and fried foods, smoking and alcohol, then gout will recede. Alas, this is not entirely true.
When gout is almost the most important is the diet. Meals should be oriented at the same time each day. You need to eat 4 or 5 times without overeating , but without limiting yourself in nutrients. Excess weight is harmful, but it is also harmful and a sharp decrease in weight. Therefore, you need to monitor yourself, arranging unloading days as needed and do not eat high-calorie foods.
Gout: Prohibited products
Diet for gout is a temporary measure, it is a principle of nutrition, even a way of life based on the care of one's health. First of all, in your diet, you must necessarily reduce consumption( or exclude altogether) those products that contain purines - compounds involved in the synthesis of uric acid. The daily norm of purines for gout is about 100-150 mg. In a healthy person, it is much higher - up to 800 mg of purines.
It is food rich in purines that are forbidden for gout. High purine products include:
- black tea( 2800 mg), coffee( 1200 mg), cocoa( 1,900 mg), chocolate( 620 mg);
- peas( 45 mg), beans( 44 mg), lentils( 70 mg), rice( 18 mg), oats( 30 mg);Veal( 48 mg), beef( 40 mg), goose( 33 mg), low-fat pork( 70 mg), fat pork( 48 mg), liver( 95 mg), animal language( 55 mg);
- sardines( 120 mg), river fish( 48-54 mg), herring( 79 mg), sprats( 92 mg);
- spinach( 23 mg), asparagus( 14 mg).
Purines in black tea, cocoa and coffee are not split into uric acid. But they have diuretic properties, so they dehydrate the cell and thereby increase the concentration of uric acid. It is much more useful to drink a sweet compote. It is better to use sugar as a sweetener. Honey and gout are not the best combination. Honey contains oxalic acid, harmful for gout.
Harmful as salty, spicy food and alcoholic beverages. Vodka and gout are the most harmful combination, so alcohol should be banned. In liquor, many purines, in addition, vodka and other alcohol dehydrates the body and thereby increases the concentration of uric acid, which leads to intoxication of the body. Alcohol and gout - an mutually exclusive combination, even in the smallest doses.
Useful products for gout
Foods in which there are few purines, but in which a high content of substances useful to humans, are conditionally considered useful for gout.
You need to eat as many high-fiber foods as possible, which helps maintain normal weight. These can be cereals, whole grains, muesli or diet breads.
Another group of healthy products - vegetables, fruits and nuts, containing essential vitamins C, E, A, D, as well as B group vitamins, various minerals, antioxidants( lycopene, polyphenols, anthocyanins). Antioxidants strengthen the body's immune properties , increase your ability to withstand various ailments.
When gout is useful not only vegetables, berries and fruits, but also a variety of greens( except sorrel): parsley, dill, coriander. They need to eat every day and a lot. Cucumbers, zucchini, cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, pumpkin, melon, pineapple, watermelon, celery, strawberries, cranberries, black currants should be regularly on the gout table. In these fruits, there are few purines, but a lot of fiber, vitamins and "good" carbohydrates.
Gout: what you can eat
During periods of exacerbation of the disease, you should completely eliminate the consumption of meat and fish.
At such times it is useful to spend unloading days when full refusal of food is practiced, only juices, compotes and kissels, as well as alkaline mineral water and non-aerated water purified by reverse osmosis technology, are used.
During the remission period, only low-fat dietary meats with low purine content should be eaten: white chicken fillet, turkey fillet, low-fat rabbit meat( legs).Cottage cheese and cheese do not contain purines( or contain them in an insignificant amount, for example, in cheese "Adyghe" only 0.4 mg), so they should be in the menu of gout. There are no purines in the egg whites, and there are very few of them in the yolk.
Tomatoes are one of the best foods in the diet for gout. Tomatoes and gout are the right combination: eating tomatoes, you can reduce the manifestations of this disease. Tomatoes contain a huge amount of B vitamins, while they include very little protein.
Gout: diet 6 classic
For the treatment of gout, many different diets have been developed that take into account the needs of gout in certain substances.
Diet No. 6 is the most common and easy-to-follow type of diet for people who have gout: nutrition with gout should comply with the requirements of this diet. The essence of diet number six is as follows:

Garlic and gout are the recommended combination, since garlic is a source of a variety of vitamins, macronutrients, has antibacterial properties. Allicin in garlic lowers the percentage of bad cholesterol in a person and has anti-carcinogenic properties.
Gout: treatment with folk remedies
Diet for gout can be combined with treatment with various infusions, decoctions of medicinal plants. For example, you can make tea from black currant and cranberry leaves and wild rose berries, mixed in equal proportions.
With gout, the compositions of chamomile, litter, and the roots of the stony hedgehog help well. These broths are prepared from the calculation of 3 teaspoons of raw materials for 2 cups of boiling water. Take the medicine you need half the glass 2-4 times a day before meals.
Ginger drink is used as a folk remedy for gout. Preparation: 10-20 g of root rub and brew with a glass of boiling water. Take half a glass a day on an empty stomach. Ginger and gout are a good combination. The root of ginger has a useful property - it cleanses the body, removes toxins and toxins.
