Ozgen Dogan, Cardiology, answeredGout is a form of arthritis. It occurs when high levels of uric acid in the blood cause crystals to form and collect around the joints. Certain foods like organ and red meat, fatty fish and seafood (shrimp, lobster, scallops, etc.) can lead to the production of uric acid. It's better to get your proteins from plant-based foods like beans and legumes.
