A new study finds enriched skim milk may help reduce the frequency of painful flare ups.
The milk contained a supplement called glycomacropeptide, or GMP and G600, a milk fat extract. The powders were mixed in a vanilla flavored shake and consumed once a day.
The findings showed those who drank the enriched skim milk also showed improvement in pain and a trend towards having fewer tender joints.
It is the first trial of dietary intervention in gout management.
The study appears in the journal Annals of Rheumatic Diseases.
