st thing to do is reduce the amount of animal source proteins in your diet
Alcohol, caffeine, carbs
including ALL sugars even artificial, junk foods
are arthritis forming foods.
Stay away from rich foods in purine, as the purine reacts with gastric acid
in the digestion to produce uric acid as a by-product. So meat, legumes,
mushrooms, cauliflower, spinach, canned sardines and anchovies in oil,
alcohol are out. Do search for a complete list.
What helps is maintaining an alkaline diet.
