Both problems can lead to chronic kidney disease and even kidney failure. You need to follow a low purine diet if you have a gout problem. Purine is a chemical compound that can be found in many foods. When the body breaks down purine, uric acid is formed and excreted out from the body via urination. In some people, there is an abnormality in the metabolism of purine and it leads to high levels of uric acid in the blood, which is far more than what the kidneys can excrete into the urine.
Food high in purine are alcoholic drinks (beer, spirit), anchovies, sardines, herring, mackerel, gravies, meat extract, scallop, organ meats (brain, kidney, liver), yeast extracts (Marmite, Vegemite).
