Avoid eating foods made from animal organs if you want to control your uric acid level naturally. Animal organs from animals such as cows, pigs, chickens and turkeys are very high in uric acid and will increase the uric acid level in the body when consumed. Eliminate all animal organs out of your diet initially, such as liver, kidneys, brain and heart.
You may be able to add small portions back into your diet after you get your gout under control. Your body may or may not be able to handle small amounts of extra uric acid.
Avoid eating foods that contain fructose (natural sugar in fruits) or that are heavily sweetened. Heavily sweetened foods have high levels of uric acid and tend to trigger bouts of gout in sensitive individuals. Avoid foods such as wine, pie and other foods that are high in sugar or sweeteners.
