Are you treating gout?
This from https://www.drugs.com/enc/gout.html

"Some diet and lifestyle changes may help prevent gouty attacks:
Avoid alcohol, anchovies, sardines, oils, herring, organ meat (liver, kidney, and sweetbreads), legumes (dried beans and peas), gravies, mushrooms, spinach, asparagus, cauliflower, consommé, and baking or brewer's yeast.
Limit how much meat you eat at each meal.
Avoid fatty foods such as salad dressings, ice cream, and fried foods.
Eat enough carbohydrates.
If you are losing weight, lose it slowly. Quick weight loss may cause uric acid kidney stones to form."
