      I'm happy to hear you responded to a vegetarian diet. I was not so lucky. I have tried veganism and vegetarianim and this has no effect on my uric acid. As you know got is a blood uric acid 7.0 or greater. My uric acid remains at 15-19. at the beginning of my diagnosis my uric acid was 27.4 in 2009. I don't eat purine foods, nor do I drink alcohol, consume ferments same avoid some high prime vegetables. TBH I have so many restrictions in my diet that meal times have become quite a dreadful time for me.

      Hi. A podiatrist showed me the gout diet. Gout is driven by Purine content in animal meats, including seafood. I became vegetarian a year ago and have not had a gout flair since. Only tiny twinges. I take no medication for it all now and have not since becoming vegetarian. My understanding is, cut out the chemical Purine in the diet by eliminating animal meats and the body no longer has the substance to make the crystals in the joint that gout actually is. This has solves my gout problem. Since 2021. Just my experience. The adjustment to Plant Based Whole Food Diet was a challenge but there is a whole world of foods and cooking out there. I just had to learn and be willing to change. The change was hard, but better than experiencing gout, which was awful and robbing me of my independence in my senior years. I hate the idea of being dependent, so I made the choice. I hope this helps.
