I have gout and diabetes i need help a diet
That's a complicated situation which can't really be solved here. Your diet and other treatment will depend on whether you are type 1 or 2, whether you can manage with just diet, or pills, or whether you need insulin, on what other medicines you are taking, your age and weight, on and on. The gout problem raises questions about your diet and weight as well.
That's why you really need professional advice. In many locations there are diabetes clinics you can attend which will look after your diet and advise on exercise. You will need regular blood tests and visits to a doctor, and maybe a dietician.
One thing for sure is that you will need to pay attention to the Glycemic Index (GI) rating of your foods, and balance your protein and carbohydrate intake. You will have to carefully regulate sugary foods, and alcohol, which elevate your blood glucose. I think as a byproduct of properly managing your diabetes, the gout will greatly improve as well.
Don't neglect this, as diabetes is a horrible disease if left untreated. How do I know? I'm a diabetic! Best of luck.
