With gout, many factors are involved including genetics, family history, health, and diet. But diet is only one of many factors. But, if you are concerned with your diet, then you should eat food low in purine content.

Here is a chart that shows purine content for each sample. The higher the purine content, the more uric acid your body will produce in digesting meaning it is a possible trigger food. So, try to steer clear of high purine content if you are trying to use your diet to regulate triggers. Also, please talk with your doctor about measuring your uric acid levels and a methodology of handling and preventing incidents.
