Which vegetables are bad for men with high uric acid?

Foods that are high in alkaloids and also have higher protein content are supposedly believed to induce an augmented danger of gout. Gout is a form of arthritis got when the levels of uric acid in the body remain high for a long period of time. The uric acid develops crystals in the joints, leading to pain and burning sensations. Apart from causing gout, an increased level of uric acid in the kidneys is also known to raise the risk of forming stones or crystals in the kidney and bladder.

Meats, seafood, alcohol especially beer that contains brewer's yeast, all raise the risk of higher uric acid. Purine rich food or foods containing higher amounts of alkali than most other foods are herring, mussels, scallops, caviar, baked products, sardines, etc. Most shell-type sea foods are particularly very higher in purine and should not be had by those suffering from either gout or elevated levels of uric acid.

There are vegetables that also need to be curtailed and these are dried beans and peas, asparagus, legumes, mushrooms, spinach., kidney beans, lentils, lima beans, rhubarb, cauliflower-etc. all kinds of fried foods and white sugars are also known to be enhance the levels of uric acid in the body.
