2 bites of shellfish I think not at all...

If you should have had a gout attack it would have been pending anyway I think

If you have gout and have recurring attacks then you may have benefi of medication to reduce your uric acid levels ...

There are medicines of course avaiable to prevent or treat gout attacks
