Gout can be inherited or it can be caused secondary to other disease such as kidney failure, certain enzyme malfunctions, chemotherapy (high cell turn over) and diet such as alcohol consumption and red meat and seafood.

No. Perhaps it can as a genetic weakness. However it is in no waycontagious.
This can occur for a number of reasons including dietary, genetic, or underexcretion of urate
persons with a genetic predisposition to goutyarthritis or perhaps a problem with the kidneys can end up suffering from gout.

I've been taking protein shakes for the last 2 years but no gout. Recent study found no connection between gout and protein consumption but consumption of alcohol, fructose-sweetened drinks, meat, and seafood are what can cause it. It's mostly genetic so you might wanna ease into it and see how your body reacts.

Gout is unusual in females before menopause but yes they can get gout.
Gout usually occurs in middle aged men of up to the mid-40s. It tends often to be accompanied in this group with obesity, high blood pressure, unhealthy cholesterol levels, and heavy alcohol use. Gout can also develop in the elderly, occurring equally in men as in women. In the elderly it is often associated with kidney problems and /or the use of diuretics. and is less often associated with alcohol use. Aside from inherited genetic disorders that cause hyperuricemia, gout in children is rare. Men are at higher risk of developing gout. and gout typically strikes after 20 - 40 years of persistent hyperuricemia, so men who develop it usually experience their first attack between the ages of 30 and 50. Before menopause, women have a significantly lower risk of developing gout, (Only about 15% of female gout cases occur before menopause.) After menopause the risk of developing gout increases in women. At age 60 the incidence of gout is equal in men and women, and after 80, gout occurs more often in women.
