Various factors can increase the risk of developing gout, with dietary factors only playing a small role (about 12% of cases). It’s important to note that while high purine consumption is linked to gout attacks in those who already have
hyperuricemia (high levels of uric acid in the blood), purine intake alone isn’t enough to trigger gout attacks. Uric acid levels often decrease during gout attacks to normal ranges. The nutrients, minerals, and healthy fats in liver and organ meats can actually help prevent gout attacks. Some symptoms of gout exist without the crystals, leading many people to believe gout is more of a liver problem as well as a fructose (sugar) problem. Inflammation might also be involved. It’s always best to visit your doctor or healthcare practitioner if you have gout or any concerns about your diet and if you’re considering adding or removing a food from your diet. Adding Organ Meats to Your Ketogenic DietOrgan meats are among the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, with vitamins and minerals that are more difficult to obtain from other foods. One benefit of the waning popularity of organ meats is the affordable
price and availability. Enjoying organ meats brings you nutrition at an affordable price! Organ meats have potent and unique flavors, and it might take some time for you to develop a taste for them. Start with milder offal like chicken livers, or add organ meats to a slow-cooked stew with other gamier-tasting meats like lamb shanks.
