FOODS that are high in purine-which raises uric acid levels in the body-can trigger a gout attack. A typical diet consist of 600 to 1000 mg of purine daily. Gout sufferers, on the other hand, must restrict their purine intake to 100 to 150 mg. Their diet must be high in carbohydrates ( which enhances urate excretion), moderate in protien, and low in fat (which reduce urate excretion).
