I have the same suspicion, i took glucophage for few months and had gout. I stoped it for 3 years and never had any symptoms. Last year i started glucophage again and got gout again in couple of months?! I also think there is a connection, probably to certain body types?!

Your diet is also something that will help you process the uric acid
and eliminate it from your body. Low-purine food choices include: green
vegetables, tomatoes, sugar, low-fat milk products, eggs, cheese,
olives, rice, pasta, grains, breads, fruits, chocolate, cereals, and
coffee.
