Does shrimp cause gout?

Cutting back on seafood during a gout flare-up can be helpful

Previous research has suggested that patients with gout should avoid shellfish, anchovies, sardines, herring, mussels, scallops, codfish, trout, tuna, and haddock. Shrimp, lobster, eel, and crab are safer seafood choices for patients with gout.
