Understanding that red wine and beer are very bad for gout sufferers, is vodka in moderation ok ?

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Although beer is at the top of the list, alcohol in general increases your risk of triggering a gout attack. You should consider your diet as a whole specifically other beverages too. And it depends on what you consider moderation and how sensitive you are to triggering a flare up. Maybe if you determine a "minimum" that may be a safe route.  You can always consult with your doctor as well.

Here is a great article for more information:
