Le jeûne peut-il causer la goutte ?

Une mode alimentaire populaire qui existe depuis quelques années est le régime de jeûne où vous ne mangez pratiquement rien pour détoxifier votre corps ou pour des raisons religieuses, comme les musulmans pendant le Ramadan. Croyez-le ou non, il y a une petite étude qui a étudié l'impact du jeûne du Ramadan sur des patients atteints de goutte.Les régimes de jeûne ne sont pas tous identiques, certains ne permettent que des liquides comme de l'eau, des thés ou des jus. D'autres limitent considérablement vos calories en limitant votre apport alimentaire quotidien, et d'autres encore vous permettent de jeûner un jour sur deux, ce que nous appelons le jeûne intermittent. Une chose est sûre : le jeûne ou un régime de famine ne guérira ni n'aidera votre goutte !

Le problème est que si vous utilisez l'un de ces régimes de jeûne pour perdre du poids, vous remarquerez rapidement que vous reprendrez rapidement le poids perdu. Si vous participez à ce régime pour détoxifier votre corps, veuillez noter que votre corps se détoxifie naturellement. Donc, disons simplement que je ne suis pas un grand fan de ce régime, et il y a de nombreuses études indiquent comment une fois que vous recommencez à manger, vous allez vous surcompenser et reprendre tout le poids perdu.

Le jeûne pendant quelques jours ne nuira pas à la plupart des gens tant que vous restez bien hydraté, mais jeûner pendant une longue période est mauvais pour vous et peut être dangereux. Votre corps a besoin de vitamines, de minéraux et d'autres nutriments pour rester en bonne santé. Si vous ne recevez pas vos nutriments, vous pouvez ressentir des symptômes tels que la fatigue, la vertige, la constipation et augmenter vos niveaux d'acide urique dans le sang, ce qui peut potentiellement causer une crise de goutte. Le jeûne a également montré une augmentation des niveaux de sucre dans le sang chez les diabétiques. C'est pourquoi les médecins recommandent à personne souffrant d'une maladie chronique de jeûner, même pour une courte période. La goutte est une maladie chronique.

Que se passe-t-il dans votre corps lorsque vous jeûnez ou suivez un régime de famine, c'est que votre corps va décomposer les muscles pour les utiliser comme carburant puisque vous ne lui donnez pas de nourriture. Deux substances sont alors produites à partir de cette décomposition musculaire, les corps cétoniques et l'acide lactique, qui altèrent tous deux la capacité de vos reins à excréter l'acide urique, ce qui entraîne une augmentation des niveaux d'acide urique et une possible crise de goutte. Si vous vous déshydratez également, cela aggravera encore plus votre situation.

En conclusion, il vaut mieux éviter complètement ce régime et se concentrer sur une alimentation saine tous les jours, comme je l'ai répété maintes et maintes fois. Mangez 80% de vos calories quotidiennes sous forme de légumes, de légumineuses, de fruits, de pains, de pâtes et de riz complets. Mangez 10% de vos calories quotidiennes sous forme de protéines comme la viande rouge maigre, le poulet maigre et le poisson. Mangez 10% de vos calories quotidiennes sous forme de matières grasses comme le fromage, le yaourt, les œufs, le beurre, etc. N'oubliez pas de boire beaucoup d'eau et croyez-moi, dans quelques semaines, vous aurez perdu quelques kilos, mais surtout, vous les aurez perdus naturellement et progressivement, sans affecter vos niveaux d'acide urique et risquer une autre crise de goutte.

      I do not agree that lean meat can reduce gout. I have been suffering from gout since 2016 . I adopted intermittent fasting of about 15 hours, pure vegan diet and occasional fish and plenty of lemon water to reduce gout flare. Still it happens but once in two years. Which I believe is ok as I do not take any medicines.

      Actually you are doing it correctly as your body readjusts if you get a gout attack after you do a fast.
      Part of cleansing out the remnants uric acid crystals lingering in your joints from years accumulated. After next round or consistent rounds of fasting, Gout will be gone.
      Its the suppression of nitric oxide that makes uric acid thrive. Also as you get older your glutathione drops significantly and the foods you normally ate during younger years would now have to ne in check for glucose fructose and high levels if refined carbs which are bad for you.

      The body can actually heal itself by believing a specific diet or improvement in lifestyle has beneficial effects. Also, caloric restriction diets will surpress ghrelin. If you were suffering with hyperuricmeia I don´t think you would find the advantages of autophagy quite so advantageous.

      I don’t know where you are getting your information, but some of it is completely wrong. Fasting will absolutely lower your blood glucose. As you get into ketosis your cholesterol will rise, but who cares? We have been fed the cholesterol myth way too long. There are no unbiased studies connecting cholesterol with heart problems. Also, restricted carb intake and eating one meal a day, with no snacks will control diabetes.

      Water Fasting is the quickest way to recovery from gout. You have to increase water intake unless you have KCD making it a little longer. However, you will still urinate the uric acid out of your body slowly but effective. The problem is eating anything with sodium or glucose. Those two are how you continue to increase uric acid in the body. Problem solved.

        LOVE this comment thank you! I’m in a flareup right now in China traveling and am implementing this, hoping and praying it goes away quickly I have to do this trade show and LOTS of steps very soon!

        • Piyush

          What is KCD?

          • Pete

            Pretty sure they meant CKD – chronic kidney disease

      • Peter Zurich

        Actually, gout (or hyperuricemia to use it´s medical name) is aggravated by high purine content foods. Any type of fasting (irrespective of water intake) will certainly aggravate gout and raise uric acid levels metabolically leading to severe symptoms. If it was easy to control by autography then we would be recommending that as a treatment.

      As someone who fast both extended and intermittently, I find fasting beneficial for a variety of reasons. The energy I feel is outstanding. I’m able to workout with weights. I have been doing it for 18 months, and I’ve lost in that time 80 lbs. My chronic knee pain has gone away.

      There are studies that indicate that fasting activities the body’s natural process of autophagy which the protein that is old and damaged in the form of scar tissue and old damaged cells. It also allows for the body to attack cancer cells.

      After the first day my hunger ( or more exactly ghrellin) goes down and I feel great.
      Once the hunger comes back, I eat. And what I find is that I can’t eat as much because my stomach has shrunk. The key is to slowly incorporate solid food, by first introducing broth, and yogurt. Then nuts and raw vegetables. But the biggest thing I’ve seen to help avoid binging is avoiding sodas, and chips and cheap food. After a fast your craving for those things go away anyway.

        What is the shortest period of your intermittent fasting? Thank you!

    • Une

      You want to greatly reduce the foods you consume that are high in purines. Red meat and a lot of seafood are in that zone.
      Try Black cherries.

      • Carny

        Not true. Glucose causes gout.

        Source: Switched to carnivore diet and have not had a Gout flare since. I eat 90% red meat, once or twice a day. No snacks.

        I lost weight and gained muscles, have zero joint pain. Avoiding beef and seafood to help gout is a myth. This article is completely wrong. Fasting also helps (just drink water).

      Dear Spiro!

      Found your info on internet.
      Tried downloading your book but seems impossible ftom where I am.

      It is great what I read.I need some more clarification for my case…
      I am sure you are busy enough to may be read my email but I hope you ll get the time!

      My name is Bobby and I am 34 years old and live basicly very healthy life.I m 177 cm height and weight 75 kg.Exercising a lot and have very fit body.I started doing just regularl yearly blood tests since 2010.

      In 2010,11,12,13 the lab test surprised us by showing a bit high uric acid levels of around 450 (norm is 380).

      Then I decided to change my foods and discovered the taste and power raw food is giving you!

      I exercise a lot ,I don’t eat any processed foods,and white sugar(very rarely),I don’t eat bread(only protein bread made from seeds),I don’t consume anypotatoes,rice,pasta etc,I find them boring…

      I am in love with the protein foods like raw salmon,raw tuna,of course rare beef steaks or even raw minced beef,raw sea food like raw prawns.

      I eat also a lot of vegetables,fruits and drink around 3L water per day.
      I also love raw nuts like cashews,brazilian nut,walnut,hazelnut,almond,sesame tahini…etc.

      I eat all these foods raw because they taste better and I can feel the energy they are giving me when raw.
      I also dont consume any additional salt.
      Sometimes I also eat porridge oats with honey.

      However, 2014,15,16 the blood test showed uric acid in the norm like around 320.I never had any symptoms.
      But a month ago I got my right foot toe a bit bigger and painfull.
      Went and checked my uric acid and it was a bit higher like 7.6 m mol at norm 7.2m moll(thats a different scale then I used before).I stopped immediately and beef and the prawns.
      I took arcoxia and it went away but since 3 days again getting bigger…I really dont know what to eat and so much confusing info on the net …

      Can I eat tomatoes?celery?salmon raw?,tuna?
      I’d appreciate your assistance.

        Hi Bobby!

        Thank you for your email and sorry for the delayed response.

        You have to eat 80% of your daily calories as complex carbs (foods as grown from the earth) like vegetables, legumes, fruit, whole wheat bread, pastas and rices, eat a lot of beans instead of meat for protein. 10% of your daily calories should be protein as in red meat, chicken, fish, try and keep your meats as lean as possible and final 10% of your daily calories should be fat as in milk, cheese, eggs, butter, nuts, yogurt. Don’t forget to workout and exercice. Very important and drink only water, tea and coffee. It’s simple formula.

        Thank you and good luck!


      • Javale Mcgee

        Hey. We are the same. I’m healthy, workout alot, normal BMI and have active lifestyle. Also I don’t drink beer, smoke or anything. The thing we have in common is we have high protein diet. Apparently this is bad for gout prone people like us. Also fasting is bad if you got lots of lean muscle as they break down to purine. This shit sucks because we’re being forced to eat more carbs (low gci) for macro. Cant even build muscles with this dumb shit disease. Fcukin garbage ass gout can suck a dick.
