A gout attack can cause a sudden onset of really intense joint pain that typically causes pain in the big toe of the sufferer. Gout is actually a type of arthritis which is caused by deposits of uric acid in the joints, tendons and kidneys where they can cause a lot of inflammation and damage. Dietary factors can contribute to gout, for example, alcohol, high purine containing foods (such as: meats, organ meats, shellfish and yeast), fats and refined carbohydrates. Drinking lots of fluids helps to promote the excretion of uric acid and eating half a pound of canned cherries per day helps to prevent gout attacks in some.
