Hello from JustAnswer.

There are no clinical studies that show that gout occurs more often in veterans that have been exposed to Agent Orange. So, it cannot be said that your gout is caused by Agent Orange.

In the general epidemiologic studies looking for increased incidence of diseases, gout has not been identified as one of the diseases.

If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
