I started juicing last Sunday afternoon and by 10 pm Monday night I had a gout attack which was serious as I was in tremendous pain on my main toe. I used beet root, carrot, a little bit of spinach and kale, orange, celery, green apple, tomatoes and broccoli. I was surprised juicing can cause a gout attack. So I stop juicing completely. Perhaps in my case juicing had caused a sudden surge of uric acid despite that these vegetables are not high in purine. In fact orange, carrot and celery which I used mostly are supposed to treat gout. So I am not sure what had happened. Perhaps I should take half a glass first as a start, instead of 1.5 glass. On the good side, my blood pressure was normal (125/88) as I have about 145/95 usually. I am taking Indomethacin now to recover but this had spiked my blood pressure
I would appreciate any advice.
