Gout: High Uric Acid Levels and Keto Ft. Dr. Ken Berry

Gout: High Uric Acid Levels And Keto Ft. Dr. Ken Berry

So do the low-carb or keto diets cause High Uric Acid Levels and further Gout? Dr. Ken Berry throws light on how true or underresearched is this statement. This article focuses on his take on the relationship between Uric Acid and Keto Diet.

What Dr. Ken Berry Has To Say:


Dr. Ken Berry is affiliated with Henry County Medical Center in Tennessee, US. He has an extremely popular youtube channel with over 1 Million Subscribers across the globe.

Dr. Ken Berry is the author of the bestseller “Lies My Doctor Told Me” which exposes myths and misleading health advice from well-meaning doctors, such as avoiding fat. He in fact embraces the Ketogenic diet and often is seen terming Keto as the Proper & Natural Human Diet.

Does Keto Lead To Gout?

So the ketogenic diet does not cause gout. You see people with gout actually have fewer flare-ups of their gall bladder and they have less severe flare-ups of their gout. There are actually two things that cause Gout. It is high levels of insulin that happen due to chronic inappropriate inflammation in your joints, and that is what causes Gout. Insulin is high inflammation that happens because of eating a high carbohydrate diet full of grains and full of vegetable oils. That’s what causes gout, not Keto.

Dr. Ken Berry believes that Keto doesn’t lead to Gout by upping one’s Uric Acid Levels. He adds that the real reason that causes gout is high levels of insulin and its chronic inappropriate inflammation in your joints that caused high levels of Uric Acid. Dr. further mentions that eating a high carbohydrate diet full of grains and full of vegetable oils is what causes High inflammation. He finishes up by dismissing that Keto is a completely different diet and has nothing to do with High Uric Acid Levels.
