Avoid meat proteins: Studies have shown that beef, lamb, and pork have high purine content and should be avoided in gout patients. However chicken and fish (NOT shellfish) are not associated with gout attacks. These meats are lower in fat, and are also generally ok for diabetics. Plant proteins like beans are not associated with gout attacks, and are safe to eat with gout or diabetes.
