The funny thing about it is, with diabetes and high uric acid levels, where you find one, you often find the other.

Diabetes and gout, heart disease and gout, obesity and gout – there is such a big connection between all of these and so many others. It all stems from the over-acidic nature of our lives in this modern world. As far as diabetes and gout are concerned, there are now studies showing that there is a direct connection between high uric acid levels and high fructose corn syrup.

I’ve written before about the connection of diabetes and gout but I was doing a little research, (snooping around) and came across some great information that I wanted to pass on to you from the folks at – here’s part of it:

Gout and Diabetic Patients

Diabetes is a group of metabolic diseases that is a result of high blood sugar. This is maybe due to the body not making enough insulin which is the hormone responsible for taking up sugar from the blood and storing it as energy in the liver and muscles. This could also be due to the body not using insulin effectively or what is commonly called Insulin Resistance

Because of high blood sugar diabetes causes a long list of medical complications including heart and blood vessel diseases, kidney damage, nerve damage and eye and foot damage. All of which is results from poor blood circulation accompanying diabetes. In some advanced cases of diabetes, gangrene occurs in the foot making amputation necessary.

The poor circulation is also the most likely reason why gout risk is high in people with diabetes. Poor blood circulation means metabolic products like uric acid can build-up in the blood. It also makes removal of uric acid via the kidneys slow and inefficient. These can both result to high uric acid levels in the blood and can trigger the development of gout.

I drink at least half my body weight in water per day. It’s filtered, I do also drink Alkaline water if I remember to pick it up. Along with other things I drink water all day. After I first started your program I was thinking I need to drink more fruit juice and then I realized that I was still taking in too much sugar. So now I just eat fruit and occasionally have some cherry juice. I’ve been gout free since I started and that alone is a reason to stay on your alkaline diet. It’s amazing how many things you normally eat that have acid in them, The trick is o get a list and just remembering the ones that are high in acid and after awhile it becomes second nature. You’ve had numerous things that come up like your shaving cream hint, it goes right into your blood stream And why not? Bert The Gout Killer, I am a living testament to that. Not to mention your diet is very good for you.

What To Do About Diabetes and Gout…

As they said in the article, poor circulation is a factor in the blood becoming overly acidic, and overly acidic with uric acid. How do you lessen acidity in the blood? Oxygenate. Or more simply put, learn to breathe better. The better we breathe, the more well oxygenated our blood becomes. Is that too easy?

The other thing is to drink more water – good water…the right water. Alkaline is the opposite of acid and the easiest way to boost the pH of your body chemistry is to drink ionized alkaline water.

Also, for more in-depth education about the importance of alkalizing and how to make it happen, check out, “Alkalize or Die” by Dr. Theodore Baroody.

Stop Gout Pain Now

  Bottom-line: Diabetes and high uric acid levels are becoming WAY too common.


Bert Middleton

“I know your pain. Let me help you kill your gout for good!  And teach you to advocate for yourself and take ownership of your gout recovery, by showing you how to live the gout-free lifestyle.” Two decades ago, Bert Middleton found himself diagnosed with gout. Like 8.3 million other people in the United States (approximately 4% of the population), he struggled helplessly with the physical, emotional, social, and financial impact that gout left unchecked can have on your life. Prescription drugs were of limited help… And the terrible pain of regular gout attacks left him unable to enjoy even the simplest daily pleasures. His marriage was suffering. His finances were spiraling due to the impact gout had on his ability to work. And maintaining a social life was often nearly impossible. Tophi surgeries left him in terrible pain.  And he found himself depressed … and angry … that gout was stealing years of his life.

Until one day, after hundreds of hours of research and self-experimentation, Bert finally had a breakthrough and created a blueprint for a way of living that would prove to be “the answer” to living gout-free for nearly a decade now. Today, Bert and his “Gout Wife” Sharon devote their evenings and weekends to educating other gout sufferers on how to live the gout-free lifestyle. Showing others his 911 Emergency Response Gout Recovery Plan for getting PAINFUL gout attacks under control in as little as 4 hours. And then, how to make daily choices that keep gout under control for GOOD! So you can finally start LIVING again!
