Can ragi be used in the diet for arthritis ?

Greetings of the day. My husband was diagnosed with GOUT yesterday with the uric acid level of 7.1. We reside in Bangalore, Karnataka, India. My Father-in-law is diabetic. My husbands blood sugar was 166 (Random). He never had blood sugar before. Is the blood sugar appearance because of GOUT. Is Ragi good for GOUT? Please let me know. Thanks in advance

Thanks for the query
Random blood sugar can be high if your husband is on steroids for the gout. It is called steroid induced diabetes. It would have helped if u had given me the list of medicines. Foe now follow diabetic diet and regular check ups
