In brief: Yes

But you have to realize that gouty arthritis is the result of either producing too much purine or not excreting it fast enough so it bulids up in blood and deposits in a joint.
Along with a proper diet, your internist needs to evaluate you and do testing and put you on a medicine. Your doctor can also resolve the symptoms but long term care is very important. The more attacks that occur, more damag.
