Like I said before there are breeder like Proexotics and Randall Grey who have fed insects to Uromastyx with no problems. And these are some of the longest living Uro in captivity. There are study done that seem to suggest they do eat insects in the wild when opportunity arises depending on the season and availability. I think that gout and renal failture has to do with husbandry than the diet. I know of an argus monitor who develop gout from eating rodents. Yes, even carnivorous reptiles develop gout in captivity, but it has to do more with husbandry issue than anything. Meeting nutritional need for this genus is very difficult because there aren't a lot of information...
