In brief: Diet and gout
Tart cherry juice is effective against gout; avoid organ meats; fatty meats and alcohol will aggravate gout.
Avoid these. Also, drink at least 3 liters fluid per day - this may enhance uric acid excretion - and if you incline diet successfully to mostly whole grain, fruit, and veggies, using egg white for protein, then uric acid levels will come down.
