Gout and the Connection to Kidney Stones

by Stephanie Meadows
Uric acid is a chemical produced when the body breaks down a substance called purines, which are found in the food and drinks we consume on a daily basis. For example, purines are found in beer, liver, anchovies, beans, peas, snack foods, sugary drinks, shellfish, etc. Uric acid usually dissolves into our blood and travels to the urinary tract, and into the kidneys.
