As the weather turned cold, the hot pot became the first choice for many people to eat. But for gout patients, hot pot has always been considered a ban. In fact, this view is not correct. Today I will tell you about the main points of gout patients eating hot pot.
First of all, when choosing ingredients, it should be based on vegetarian food, with a small amount of meat, it is best not to choose seafood and animal offal. Most vegetables and fruits are low-lying foods, especially vegetables such as rapeseed, cabbage, carrots, potatoes, kelp and melons. They are rich in potassium and have the effect of inhibiting the precipitation of uric acid.
Secondly, the bottom of the pot and the dip should be as light as possible. Seasonings such as pepper, pepper, and mustard can cause gout attacks, and should be used as little as possible.
Again, the best choice for beverages is soda, which neutralizes uric acid and is a very good drink for gout patients. In addition, beverages such as boiled water, mineral water or fruit and vegetable juice can also promote the dissolution of uric acid into the urine. Need to be reminded that gout patients can not drink alcohol when eating hot pot, because alcohol metabolism in the body produces lactic acid, affecting the discharge of uric acid, so for gout patients, regardless of white wine, beer, red wine, rice wine or health wine, can not drink. Yogurt is not suitable for drinking because it contains more lactic acid. Also, gout patients should not drink hot pot soup when eating hot pot, and do not use it to cook noodles because of the high content of strontium.
Finally, gout patients should first pick up the meat after eating the hot pot. This will not only help control the intake of meat and energy, but also avoid excessive intake of phlegm and aggravate the symptoms of gout.
