instructions. In the case of gout, a low purine diet is advised, and sufferers should
avoid meat, beans and alcohol. There is, however, plenty of unproven advice on the
relationship between food and arthritis. Many recommend avoiding foods belonging

recommendations can be made. Maintaining a healthy diet is important, and weight
loss can help ease some pain of arthritis. Losing weight can be especially effective in

Limiting consumption of fat, cholesterol, sugar, and alcohol is a good idea overall.
