Too much fruit. Eat more eggs, meat, fowl etc... Gout correlates with hyperinsulinism and fruit isn't going to help with that. Drop your carbs for a month and do a low-carb version of Paleo. After that add back in some starch. After maybe 2-3... (more)

If it is due to hyperuricemia, then vitamin C supplementation should help to mitigate it. I think massive changes in vitamin C intake are bad if it's gout, but 1 gram a day would be unlikely to cause problems. I personally take about 1-1.5g a day.... (more)
