His uric acid levels are slightly high.  This is quite common in people with diabetes.

He may address this by avoiding low purine foods (these are the ones that raise uric acid).

He should have his foot properly examined to rule out infection of any type.

If he does have serious gout there are also some medications available to help.

Make sure his blood sugar is well controlled.
