Dietary advice for gout, or kidney stones is often conflicting, inaccurate or even completely outdated. Therefore we evaluated hundreds of scientific sources to put together the latest information available for these topics. The app provides you with sufficient information to make informed choices for healthier eating. You can use the app for free with a limited functionality. It doesn't require a registration and is free of ads.

Our app covers the following topics

Diet and gout
Usually, the method of choice is a dietary restriction of the purine intake. However, it is frequently overlooked that not all purines are equally problematic and that several other dietary factors play an important role.

Prevention of kidney stones
Without proper instruction a low oxalate diet is very complicated to follow. However, most guidelines do not consider the bioavailability of oxalates. Besides, oxalates are only one factor that contributes to the formation of kidney stones. A one-sided focus on oxalates alone carries a high risk of malnutrition!
