Since I heard that taking in more dairy products like yogurt, milk and cheese, combined with taking calcium supplement, can lower your uric acid levels, and thereby help prevent gout, does this mean that i can use this as a counteractive measure to balance out my overall purine intake from high purine foods like red meats and seafood that are actually bad for gout. So in other words, the more high purine delicacies you'd like to eat like steak, burgers, shrimp/scallop kebabs, the more dairy products you'd have to take in to balance out your diet and uric acid levels, and everything will be ok in keeping yourself from getting another gout attack.
