Gout & type 2 diabetes often co-exist in people with common physical characteristics & conditions, the most prominent being obesity. Gout is a form of arthritis caused by uric acid buildup. Avoid alcohol, stay away from foods with purines which increase uric acid.

Just eat these foods in moderation: 1 serving a day
