Typically, untreated gout as you say never really goes away.
I’m not comfortable with all the assumptions being made. If you do have gout, you might have had too much uric acid for most of your life regardless of how much you were drinking. In that case, drinking would only have made you develop obvious symptoms quicker and quitting alcohol would not be sufficient to cure your gout. There’s no way to know if you never got tests for uric acid. In order to know to what extent kindey function is to blame, the amount of uric acid in your urine can be tested as well. There’s no need to rely on assumptions.
