        Gout is secondary to acculmulation of uric acid (hyperuricemia), with crystal precipitation at joints or

other tissues.  Uric acid is the metabolite of purine (a component of our body's nucleic acid).  Aside from

drinking plenty of water (to aid uric acid excretion) and avoid eating too much, alcohol, fried food, gout

patients should also avoid high purine foods (thereby uric acid production) such as meat, beans, offal, yeast,

shellfish, sardines, herring, bacon, alcohol etc.
