Gout and Kidney stones
so husband has been diagnosed with these two things. He had surgery for the stones, but still has another small one.
low oxylate for the stones.
Low purine for the gout.
we go see a dietician on October 11th.
until then we can't figure out what to eat.
looks like 3 oz meat/day (if no symptoms of gout attack)
and a little bit of fruit/vegies (NO asparagus, beets, cauliflower,etc)
no blackberries, raspberries (his favorites)
this diet plan is horrible.
I just want one list from the Dr. called FOODS YOU CAN EAT ON BOTH LOW PURINE AND LOW OXYLATE
I am compiling a list but it's hurting my brain

I found this:
When purines are broken down by the kidneys, one of the byproducts is uric acid, which can crystallize in your joints and cause gout attacks if it isn't cleared quickly enough from your body. Foods that are very high in purines include beer, yeast, anchovies, gravy, bacon, game meats, organ meats, meat extracts, broth, mincemeat, mussels, scallops, codfish, haddock, trout, fish eggs, mackerel, herring and sardines.
If you suffer from certain types of kidney stones, consuming foods high in oxalate can increase your risk for getting these stones. Foods that are high in oxalate include wheat bran and some products made with whole-wheat flour, cornmeal, barley, nuts, sesame seeds, tahini, miso, tea, cola, coffee, chocolate, fried potatoes, sweet potatoes, kiwi, dried apricots, figs, berries, tangerines, currants, Concord grapes, beets, collard greens, leeks, summer squash, mustard greens, okra, Swiss chard, spinach and rhubarb. Black beans, chili beans, navy beans, pink beans, great northern beans and small white beans are higher in oxalate than other types of beans, and many types of soy products are also high in oxalate, including soy nuts, soy meat products, soy yogurt and soy milk.
Foods Allowed on Both Diets
You can consume any fruits and vegetables that are not listed above as being high in purine or oxalate, and these should make up a large portion of your diet. When it comes to meats and seafood, stick with chicken, pork, turkey, beef, shrimp, lobster, crab and oysters, but only in small amounts and not necessarily every day, as these all contain moderate amounts of purine. You should try to get most of your protein from foods like eggs, low-fat dairy products or combinations of lentils, black-eyed peas, chickpeas, sunflower seeds and grains like oatmeal, rice, bread, pasta and noodles. You can drink wine in moderation, but most of your beverages should consist of water, approved fruit juices and low-fat milk.
You doctor will tell you how much purine and oxalate you can have each day. Aim to fill at least half of your plate with fruits and vegetables of different colors, then fill the other half with grains and proteins. This will help you consume the recommended amount of the essential nutrients. A salad along with rice topped with lentils or one of the other low-oxalate beans is a good option for days when you are not having meat. On the days you are having meat, a stir-fry that contains small amounts of meat along with lots of vegetables that are low in purine and oxalate served over rice is a good option.
