Uric acid results from the breakdown of compounds known as purines in the body. Purines are both produced in the body and consumed through the diet. Normal values of uric acid in the blood range from 2.4 to 6.0 milligrams per deciliter for females and 3.4 to 7.0 milligrams per deciliter for males. Uric acid levels higher than 7.0 milligrams per deciliter in the blood can cause crystals to form and build up around joints, resulting in a painful form of arthritis known as gout. Many foods contain high levels of purines, and eating these foods can lead to high levels of uric acid in the blood.
Diet Tips for High Uric Acid Patients:
1. Lower fat intake as excess fat reduces normal excretion of uric acid.
2. Liberal fluid intake to keep the urine dilute and uric acid soluble to facilitate excretion by kidney.
3. Restriction or elimination of alcohol.
What to Avoid:
1. Shell fishes, red meat, mince meat, meat extracts, organ
meats, fishes (sardine, roe, makeral).
2. Whole pulses (masur, rajmah, chana, chole, etc.). Other dals
3. Vegetables and fruits - green peas, spinach, French beans,
brinjal, cauliflower, mushroom, chickoo, custard apple.
A. Use less salt while cooking. Avoid adding salt while cooking
rice or in chapatti dough.
B. Use adjuncts like tomato, vinegar, cocum, amchur, lime juice,
curd, pepper powder to make the food cooked with less salt
C. Remove the salt shaker from the table.
D. Avoid salted nuts/ biscuits, papads, pickles, chutneys.
E. Avoid excess consumption of processed and preserved
foods; eg. Bakery products
F. Caution - Do not overdo on salt substitutes as that might
cause an electrolyte imbalance.
a. Fresh cherries, strawberries, blueberries and other red-blue
e. Vegetables including cabbage and parsley
f. Foods high in bromelain (pineapple)
g. Foods high in vitamin C (red cabbage, red bell peppers,
tangerines, mandarins, oranges, potatoes)
h. Low-fat dairy products
i. Complex carbohydrates (whole grain breads, cereals)
j. Chocolate, cocoa
k. Coffee, tea
Although Purines (organic compounds, which create uric acid breakdown in the body) are found in vegetable sources, they don't cause the same amount of uric acid buildup in the body that meat sources do. In fact, fresh fruits and vegetables reduce acid levels in the body and it is often advised to avoid red meats, organ meats and highly processed foods. Fresh fruits and vegetables are encouraged so the patient can increase alkalinity in the blood.
Therefore, rather than attempting to find foods that are free of purines and uric acid, it’s important to know how to increase the body’s alkalinity, which naturally reduces the body’s acidity. Fresh, non-processed foods, such as fruits and vegetables, are the way to go.

Water flushes out toxins including excess uric acid from the body. Have at least 10- 12 glasses of water daily.
Cherries have anti–inflammatory substances named anthocyanis that help reduce uric acid levels. It prevents the uric acid from crystallising and being deposited in the joints.

13. High-fiber foods
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, adding foods high in dietary fibre may help lower uric acid levels in your blood.

Increase the consumption of dietary soluble fibres such as Isabgol , Oats, Broccoli, apples, oranges, pears, strawberries, blueberries, cucumbers, celery, and carrots, barley.
Bananas are also beneficial in lowering uric acid.A banana-only diet, consisting of eight or nine bananas per day for three or four days, may alleviate the swelling and inflammation of joints caused by gout or other forms of arthritis more rapidly.

17. Tomatoes, broccoli, and cucumbers
Tomatoes, broccoli, and cucumbers are some of the veggies that you need to start including in your meals. Tomatoes are one of the best vegetables that you could have for lowering uric acid. Fresh tomato is alkaline by nature and when it is exposed to the blood stream it increases the alkalinity of the blood.

A couple becomes a family when they become parents. And, a lot of people want to enjoy the experience being parents. But sometimes, sexual problems can lead to bigger problems, like infertility.
The state of childlessness can be the result of sexual problems. Sometimes couples who go for fertility treatments do not realise that previously existing sexual dysfunctions can be the cause of infertility. Before spending a lot of time on expansive and expensive treatments, it is important to discern if the couple are having problems with their sex lives, with special preference to frequency and timing of coitus.
Two further categories of sexual dysfunctions need to be considered. One is premature ejaculation (PE) in which, the semen is ejected soon after sexual activity and with minimal penile stimulation. The second point is to consider whether the sperm is being introduced to the vagina. This is a personal examination of the couple’s method of having sex.
Sexual problems related to infertility in men are loss of desire, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and retarded ejaculation and in women are loss of desire, vaginismus, dyspareunia and anorgasmia. All these dysfunctions can be solved with the help of an expert. Thus, it is important to go for thorough consultation before going for fertility treatments.
Adequate sexual function can contribute to the success of fertility treatments, but at the same time it also leads to much stress and discord among couples as the pressure of procreation might get too much. This can have harmful repercussions, affecting the entire fertility treatment. The pressure of planned sex, to perform on demand and anxiety also harms fertility.
Talking about sex and focusing on your relationship as a couple helps in the long run.
