This Sparked Me!

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. The worst offenders are liver or other organ meats, anchovies, lobster, shrimp, scallops, herring, mackerel, beef, pork, &lamb. Don't worry about cutting out purines completely. Just eat these foods in moderation: 1 serving a day
