From the Protein Power blog:
Dr Mike, I have read that high-protein, high-fat diets can lead to gout. Is this also a myth?
They can lead to gout only if they’re high-protein, high-fat, high-carb diets. If you remove the carbs, it isn’t true. We used the low-carb diet to treat gout in our practice, and it worked great. Gout isn’t something everyone is at risk for – only those with the genetic disposition. If you don’t have the genes for it, you can eat anything and everything and won’t get gout.
Also from that blog, Gary Taubes says "fructose raises uric acid levels and gout is caused by the elevated uric acid in the blood stream."
