Hi, My Dad has Uric Acid problem. His uric acid level came out to be 8. Yearly or within 2 years, he usually gets gout attack. Currently, he is having swelling, pain and redness in his knee. I wanted to know what vegetables and fruits are preferable for him which do not increase the uric acid level and which all vegetables/fruits he should basically avoid. Can you help with a proper diet chart to follow? Also, are mangoes preferable to eat in such condition?
