Dietary influences on the risk for gout and their implications within a Healthy Eating Pyramid. Data on the relationship between diet and the risk for gout are primarily derived from the recent Health Professionals Follow-Up Study [15,32,33]. Upward solid arrows denote an increased risk for gout, downward solid arrows denote a decreased risk, and horizontal arrows denote no influence on risk. Broken arrows denote potential effect but without prospective evidence for the outcome of gout. Adapted from [48]. Copyright 2005 with permission from American College of Physicians.
