You can find the following topics in the app:

Diet and gout
Usually, the method of choice is a dietary restriction of the purine intake. However, it is frequently overlooked that not all purines are equally problematic and that several other dietary factors play an important role.

Prevention of kidney stones
Without proper instruction a low oxalate diet is very complicated to follow. However, most guidelines do not consider the bioavailability of oxalates. Besides, oxalates are only one factor that contributes to the formation of kidney stones. A one-sided focus on oxalates alone carries a high risk of malnutrition!
