In this video, we’ll be discussing Fish Oil and Uric Acid.
If you have done any semblance of research related to gout, you’ll know that uric acid blood levels is something many people gauge on their risk for a gout flare up. The higher the uric acid level, the higher the chances of a flare-up.
To take that a step further, it is important to find out what raises uric acid, especially when it comes to diet.
Fish and shellfish have been heavily discussed food sources in terms of its uric acid contribution.
And although certain people have certain triggers when it comes to a flare up, I know shellfish and sushi in particular are a trigger for me. People tend to associate cold water fish like tuna and salmon as one that may increase uric acid levels. Shellfish such has lobsters, shrimp, and mussels also tend to get a ‘warning label’ for those who suffer from gout due to their association with increasing uric acid levels.
