Avoid purine-rich foods as uric acid results from the breakdown of purines. The excess can be caused by either an over-production of uric acid by the body or the under-elimination of uric acid by the kidneys.
Reduce the intake of purine-rich food such as
- Beer, other alcoholic beverages.
- Organ meat (liver, kidneys, sweetbreads) meat extracts, consomme, gravies and yeast.
- Legumes (dried beans, peas), mushrooms, spinach, asparagus, cauliflower.
Take dark berries which supposed to contain chemicals that lower uric acid.
