Effect of Losing Weight on Gout
Losing weight can help lower uric acid levels. If you are overweight, losing weight should help reduce your symptoms and prevent future gout attacks. However, do not go on a crash diet because this can make your gout worse.
Consult a practitioner for help designing a safe and effective weight loss program that includes:
- Setting a proper weight loss goal
- An appropriate diet to both lose weight and maintain a proper weight.
- A regular exercise program.
