Reduce Gout Flares: Drink More Skimmed Milk

Experimental studies have indicated that certain components of dairy products, particularly glycomacropeptide (GMP) and G600 milk fat extract (G600), can potentially lessen down the inflammatory response to gout crystals.

Researchers studied the frequency of gout flare-ups in 120 patients with the condition over 3 months. All of the people had experienced at least two flare-ups in the preceding 4 months.

The patients were divided into three different groups; lactose powder; skimmed milk powder; or skimmed milk powder enriched with GMP and g600. Each powder was mixed in 250 ml of water as a vanilla flavoured shake and drunk daily.

In all, 102 patients completed the three month study. And the results showed that those on the enriched skimmed milk diet had a significantly greater reduction in gout flare-ups compared with the other two groups.

There are many factors that can contribute to gout flare ups which include diet, and lifestyle, so speak with your family doctor if you suffer from gout flare ups.

Diet is very important if you want to at least control your gout flare-ups. Good to see test done with skim milk.
