If you have gout, you've probably wondered, “Are eggs bad for gout? Will they deepen the situation?". Let's do a quick background check on eggs. Eggs that come from chickens are naturally low in purines. This means that they should reduce your body's natural uric acid level. As you may or may not know, purine-rich foods are bad for those with gout.
So why is this a problem? Eggs are actually part of the list of foods that don't have purines, but can cause the body to naturally produce amounts of uric acid that are larger than average. The higher the uric acid, the worse gout feels. People have reported difficulty walking, standing up, or even grasping an object.
Eggs have been part of a large controversy, and there's a reason for that. This isn't a one-shot answer. Because it's a food that causes the body to produce uric acid and not a food that produces uric acid itself (it's confusing, yes), some people will suffer the effects as seriously as inability to walk, and others will not. Every body is constructed different.
In any case, it's safe to stay away from eggs. If you have not eaten eggs yet and you have gout, stay away to be safe. If you have, but you haven't felt effects, go ahead it should be safe. Be reasonable about it. Don't take unnecessary risks with your health.
Keep your diet safe for yourself. Reduce your purine-rich food count. Stay away from eggs if you haven't already.
