Gout is both an inflammatory and a metabolic disease. Increasing evidence supports gout's association with metabolic syndrome. More specifically, both human studies and animal models suggest that hyperuricemia may play a role in promoting inflammation, hypertension and cardiovascular disease, adipogenesis and lipogenesis, insulin and glucose dysregulation, and liver disease.

Contrary to the popular belief that gout sufferers should avoid soy and legume products as they are rich in purine, a recent study has found that soy products do not increase the risk of gout, and that those who already have the condition and continue consuming them. Soy does not appear to have the same effect despite being high in purine. The findings were based on results from the Singapore Chinese Health Study at the NUS Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health. "The finding that soy is not associated with higher risk of gout confirms six other studies done in places like Japan and Taiwan, which show that consuming soy does not increase uric acid in one's blood," explains Professor Koh Woon Puay, principal investigator. Interestingly, in their study - involving more than 50,000 Chinese in Singapore - found that those who consumed the most soy products were at lower risk of gout than those who ate the least.
