Does Alcohol Effect Gout Disease?

I want to know if you can still drink when you have been diagnosed with gout. I hope so, because I do not really like the idea of trying to give up booze all together. It is not going to be very easy, if I do have to do that. So I am going to check online to find out can you still drink alcohol with gout and hopefully I will still be able to fit a little bit of alcohol into my diet while dealing with my gout. But I am already in quite a bit of pain from the gout, and so if it turns out that I need to eliminate alcohol from my diet entirely, then that is what I am going to do. I really don’t want my gout to get any worse than it already is, as it is a very awful thing to deal with and it also scares me quite a bit.

It is starting to make it harder to get around, because of the swelling in my feet. It is also very painful and I must admit my case of gout isn’t even very bad compared to some of the cases that I have seen pictures of. If mine where to get more extreme, then it seems that would create a massive change in my life and not for the better. I might have to use a wheelchair or something. I am not sure if it would come to that, but it does seem like a possibility.

Right now, I am trying to go through my diet and figure out which things can stay in my diet and which things need to go. It is part of my strategy to deal with gout and hopefully slow down its progression or maybe even reverse its course.
