My husband has gout (has had it for years) and eats low carb. He takes allopurinol on a daily basis. Before he started LC he had not used allopurinol in a long time (he tried natural preventatives). He had a massive flare up which sent him to the doctor which lead him being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and low thyroid last November, which is when we both started eating low carb. So while LC eating hasn't increased him gout it hasn't necessarly decreased it either. He did have a small attack a couple of weeks ago which was easily treated. He's found he needs to avoid processed ham steaks to help his gout, but he's just fine with tons of bacon. Different people might need to avoid different foods.
