Gout and Alcohol is a section of GoutPal that deals with all aspects of alcohol and gouty arthritis. Personally, I believe there is too much thought given to alcohol. At the expense of more important issues. Because alcohol is a small part of gout diet. Which, in turn, is a small part of gout treatment.

So, unless you have an effective gout treatment plan, spending time worrying about gout and alcohol consumption is pointless. But if you still want the facts, you will find them here. More importantly, you will find a guide to see if you need to worry about how alcohol affects your gout. Including the best way to manage alcohol intake for best gout control.

Who wants to know about Gout and Alcohol?

There are 3 types of people who want to know more about gout and alcohol:

  1. You want to learn as much as possible about gout.
    So read on.
  2. You want to know how alcohol will affect your control plans for gout pain and for uric acid safety.
    So focus mainly on alcohol-related articles marked for Dieters.
  3. You think changing your alcohol intake is more important than personal gout management plans.
    So focus on alcohol-related articles marked for Foodies.

I realize my types of gout sufferer are arbitrary. Because individuals are a unique mix of different types that can change as you learn to control gout in different ways. But they help you find information that is most relevant to you at different times. So stay focused and remember this is general information. You can always get personal help in my gout forum to explain how the general information applies to you.
