    Default Is It Safe To Eat Chickpeas Or Hummus If You Have Gout?

    Gout is a type of arthritis caused by the buildup of the chemical uric acid in your joints. It typically onsets suddenly and causes symptoms like intense joint pain, inflammation, and redness. The most common place to experience gout is in your big toes.

    Your body produces uric acid when it breaks down chemicals called purines. Purines occur naturally in your body, but they’re also found in high concentrations in some foods. Overconsumption of these foods can potentially raise uric acid levels in your body and lead to the development of gout.

    Studies :Trusted Source have found that following a low purine diet can help you lower uric acid levels. But it can be difficult to know which foods are safe, since purine content isn’t readily available on the packaging of most foods.Daniel Yetman
