In brief: Gout
Alcohol is a major trigger of gout attacks.
Drinking less (or not at all) can significantly reduce the frequency of gout flareups. There are also medications that can treat and help prevent gout as well. Optimal levels of alcohol range from zero for people with alcohol related health problems to 1-2 drinks a day for a healthy adult.
