What triggers a gout attack . . . . specific foods?

my father unfortunately suffers from gout. . . and is a heart patient. Pretty much his heart friendly diet is bad for his gout and a gout friendly diet is bad for his heart. . . . He's had one gout attack a while back. And since summer started, he's had 4-5 attacks . . . . his diet has not changed and am wondering why this is happening. He doesn't eat organ mean or red meat either

Personally i do not own goats but i have heard from many sources that pineapple chunks can make them very aggressive.
It may have to be put down if such behavior continues.

PS. 'Organ meat or red meat'..... What kind of goat is this? a cannibal goat??

The best foods to avoid for gout are those high in salt or sugar. Eating these components in small quantities is healthy for anyone and also for both gout and your heart. Meat does not affect gout significantly unless its salt cured.

Foods very high in purines:
Hearts, herring, mussels, smelt, sardines, yeast, sweetbreads are the kind of foods which are having high proportion of purines.
Foods those are moderately high in Purines:
Mutton, anchovies, liver, salmon, grouse, veal, turkey, bacon, kidneys, goose, trout, pheasant, scallops, partridge, haddock carry moderately high percentage of purines and can cause and aggravate the cases of Gout.
Vegetables those are very high in purines:
Asparagus, cauliflower and mushrooms are the vegetable sources which can cause Gout as they are very rich in purines.
Consumption of Alcohol:
It increases the production of uric acid and hampers the renal excretion by the kidneys, thus resulting in increased levels of uric acid.
Consumption of Coffee:
Caffeine present in coffee accelerates the break down of proteins and hence can aggravate Gout.
Acidic Fluids
Some foods are alkaline to the filtration system of kidney and some are acidifying to it. The elimination or excretion of Uric acid enhances if the urine reaches to an alkaline state and is reduced if urine becomes acidic. The PH of neutral Urine is 7.0 and if it comes down to 6.0 then excretion of uric acid decreases by a considerable amount around 50%.

Tailor made Cigarettes, Artificial sweeteners, , Carbonated soft drinks & fizzy drinks , Drugs, White Sweet Flour, Goat, Lamb, Pastries & cakes made up of white flour, White Sugar, Custard with white sugar, , Brown sugar, Chocolate, Coffee , Jams, Jellies, Beer, Liquor , White Pasta, Chicken, Pork, Beef, Deer, Rabbit, Semolina, refined & iodized Table salt, Black Tea, Turkey, Wheat bread, White rice, Processed White vinegar are the acidic foods which can trigger Gout.

I hope you dad gets better!

alcohol and shell fish (shrimp-lobster-clams-oysters-scallops) are triggers for gout.

i've suffered from this for many years and i can attest that it is an 11 on a scale of 10 when it comes to the pain.

as stated- organ meats like liver; tongue; heart are not good.

i send empathy.
