To cut down on my soda drinking , I add lemon juice (from concentrate) to a glass of ice water. Can the lemon juice affect my gout?

In brief: Yes

The drinking of warm water and freshly squeezed lemons help to neutralize the uric acid in your body.
Try this after every meal. Sodas are really bad and lead to gout attacks.

In brief: Yes

But in a positive way.
It helps formulate calcium carbonate which helps neutralize the acid.
