    I’m in the middle of a gout attack right now and it hurts.

    When I’m in pain I want ice cream.

    Is ice cream bad when you’re having a gout attack?

    Is ice cream good or bad for gout?

    Ken: This may not help but anytime I have a large icecream I am almost always going to get an attack. Dan


    Dairy is considered OK with Gout!

    Don't leave it on the joint too long 🙂

    and use home made,  using low fat milk too! Watch waistline.



    Ice cream is perfectly fine during a gout attack…just make sure it isn't salami or liver flavored.


    If ice cream helps you concentrate on what really matters – your uric acid management plan – then eat it all day, every day.

    Please note that this topic has moved to yogurt/ice cream with gout. Where you can continue to discuss ice cream and other aspects of dairy with gout.

Ice Cream and Gout Discussion

Ken is worried that ice cream might cause gout. So Dan agrees that it always causes his gout. But Trev thinks ice cream should be OK as low fat dairy is good for gout.

Zip2play jokes that meat flavored ice cream is bad. Then I close with a comment about staying focused on managing uric acid. Because I hadn't realized at that time that gout sufferers with food issues need better help. Including ways to eat ice cream within gout friendly eating patterns. While still meeting national standards for healthy nutrition.

Having realized that many people need their own Gout Foundation Eating Pattern, I'm working on templates that you can adapt for your own food preferences. So if ice cream is one of your favorite foods, join me to help build an ice cream for gout template. Using the link in Related Topics below.

Is Ice Cream Bad for Gout?

Recently, I researched the effects of ice cream on uric acid. So if you're working with a dietitian or other nutrition professional, you can discuss with them how my Ice Cream & Uric Acid Research applies to your gout. But of course, that only applies to gout patients who have opted for Uric Acid Eating Patterns as a sole or partial uric acid cure. Later, I will provide templates for your eating patterns as part of Gout Progression Phase 5: Start Uric Acid Cure.

For now, I'm prioritizing templates for Gout Foundation Eating Patterns. Which are aimed at people who have identified poor nutrition as a cause of their gout. But, in any case, are a forerunner of Uric Acid Eating Patterns.

Since so many gout sufferers are worried about ice cream as a cause of their gout, I'm creating one of my first foundation templates for ice cream. So you can help me by sharing your stories about ice cream and gout in the comments above. Because then I can ensure that I address your concerns when I publish my ice cream for gout templates.

Ice Cream for Gout Templates

Ice cream for gout templates give you summaries of national nutrition standards for ice cream consumption. So that gives you the context of ice cream in your daily and weekly meal plans. Allowing you to discuss your ice cream consumption with your medical team. Specifically, to make shared decisions about how much ice cream you will eat, if any.

Assuming that you have decided how much ice cream to eat, your next question is likely to be, "which ice cream is best for my gout?" Or, if that isn't your next question, tell me. Then I can make my templates better for you and other gout sufferers. Anyway, my templates will include some ice cream recipes that you can choose from. With appropriate gout-related nutrient analysis to help you make that choice.

Before you get these templates, it is best to read Is Ice Cream Bad for Your Gout? Where I have moved the links to the templates project.
