Gout is an ancillary condition of your body protecting against glucose poisoning. Glucose poisoning occurs from habitual consumption of too much sugar and processed food, a proxy of sugar. Gout usually diminishes as your glucose condition worsens, thus when gout goes away, it can be a signal of diabetes.
When your benelles become glucose saturated, they refuse more glucose, in order to protect their health. To tell the blood “no more sugar please”, they refuse insulin. The term for this is insulin intolerance.
