Is eating mango in high uric acid dangerous?

During the summer, people consume a lot of mangoes since they are not only tasty but also satisfy hunger. However, is eating mango harmful for someone with uric acid? Many people claim that mango includes a lot of fibre and uric acid is an illness caused by poor metabolism, thus eating mango is healthy. However, people ignore the other compounds found in mango, which may be harmful to uric acid patients.

Due to their high sugar content, mangoes have the potential to raise blood sugar levels. Thus, eating a lot of mangoes raises blood sugar levels due to the fructose in them, but it also raises uric acid levels, which can cause gout and liver problems.

To put it another way, if you have gout, an increase in fructose may be harmful to you since it causes the body to produce purines, which raise uric acid levels and cause inflammation and pain.

Consuming mangos, a seasonal fruit, has several health benefits. But you should only eat mango in small amounts if you have a uric acid problem. Mango should only be consumed twice a week, that too in small quantity. Eating it daily can be dangerous.
