Identifying sources helps gout sufferers manage their condition by avoiding or minimizing factors that can lead to the accumulation of uric acid, such as certain foods, beverages, and lifestyle choices.

Some gout triggers are: excessive alcohol consumption, diuretics, dehydration, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), monosodium glutamate (MSG), certain seafood, diets high in red meat, and organ meat.
