Has There Been Any Research On Food Allergies And A Possible Correlation With Gout?

Has There Been Any Research On Food Allergies And A Possible Correlation With Gout?

My food allergies are poultry, fish, shellfish, beer, which are all foods high in purines. I’ve been allergic to poultry since birth but the other allergies didn’t start until my 30s and after I was suffering from gout attacks. Once I stopped eating fish/beer the gout attacks stopped. Doctors and my own research have told me that gout is caused by the body’s inability to process purines and uric acid. So I was wondering if there could be a correlation here?

Severe Food Allergies & Severe Asthma - Could This Be MCAS Or Lupus

Severe Food Allergies & Severe Asthma - Could This Be MCAS Or Lupus

I have been diagnoised with severe food allergies & Severe asthma (also skin allergies) a while ago. I have recently met with a specialist who is an immunologist and she seems to now think I have either Mast cell actvation disorder or actually lupus.

I just wanted to see if there is anyone here who has been diagnosed with either condition and is this a common crossover or something people can develop?
