Shellfish should be limited if you suffer from gout.
I've done a lot of research and some of the worst foods are venison or any game meats, turkey and alcohol, especially beer. Lobster and shrimp can be eaten occasionally, but I wouldn't eat it if you have a flare up.
It seems everyone who suffers from gout metabolizes purines from different foods differently.
If you like to drink, and beer causes a flare up, try vodka. Alcohol slows the process of eliminating uric acid, which comes from the purines. Beer contains purines, while Vodka doesn't. Gout sucks, but it can be controlled. THere are many web sites to check out.
