  • My 50 year old female partner suffers from gout. She has been told by doctors that she has high level of Uric acid in her body, and this is what exacerbates the problem for her. If the level is high (she is told) it will make her gout pain worse. In order to make things easier (she is told) it would be better for her to eat small amounts often, in order to keep the uric acid levels down.

    This makes fasting a really difficult option for her, especially in trying to maintain long periods without ingesting any calories at all.

    Anyone else suffered from high uric acid levels and been fasting? We would appreciate any suggestions or help

    I know a little about gout, but if she eats her 500-600 calories/day over many hours, there shouldn’t be a problem for the Fasting. It is also about WHAT she eats, as certain foods provoke an attack.

    Ok, many thanks!
