Lower Uric Acid Levels: What to eat to avoid Gout and Prevent Uric Acid Kidney Stones
Episode 183: Lower Uric Acid Levels: What to eat to avoid Gout and Prevent Uric Acid Kidney Stones. Gout is caused by a buildup of uric acid. When uric acid levels are high, uric acid stones (the second-most common type of kidney stone) may form. Gout and kidney stones are both found to increase the risk of developing chronic kidney disease. These health issues are also heavily influenced by dietary factors such as protein, fluids, and produce. By focusing on controlling both gout or kidney stones, the kidneys may also be protected.
