Things that may cause this slow-down in the removal of uric acid include rich foods, being overweight, having diabetes, taking certain diuretics and drinking too much alcohol.

Rashes may be due to some allergy. You need to find that. For knees you will have to start physiotherapy. Drink plenty of fluids green vegetables, fruits, restrict intake of pulses and high protein diet.

Due to excessive purine in the blood stream it causes crystals to deposited in the joints due to metabolic disorder, yes it affect mostly small joints but can effect large joints also, do regular exercise, walking, if you have high uric acid then control your protein intake.

Sir/ madam, i'm 47 years old & suffering from knee pain since last three months. Otherwise I don't have any medical issues. And the pain is only when I straighten my leg from cross leg sitting/folding & driving my car. Earlier I thought that this pain is temporary & due to rainy season which will automatically go when the bright sun shine will be there. But it didn't go automatically which compelled me to go for six blood tests with my family doctor's advice. These tests are cbc, esr, crp, serum uric acid, vit b13 & vit d3. All reports came ok except esr which was much higher with one hour count as 30 mm & two hour count as 55 mm, vit b12 was 198 & vit d3 was 13.5. This report of two days old. Now suggest me what should I do & which medicines I should go for. Further let me tell you that I exercise, do stretching & pranayam regularly all most everyday. I consume milk with breakfast & yogurt in the afternoon with lunch everyday. Also around three four times I consume worm milk laced with turmeric before bed time. I'm a health conscious man & a fitness freak. Please reply to my knee pain issues which is till now mild & bearable a d may escalate as time processed. I have stopped sitting cross leg & in vajrasan since last 10 days.

Polycystic kidney disease (pkd) is an inherited kidney disorder. It causes fluid-filled cysts to form in the kidneys. Pkd may impair kidney function and eventually cause kidney failure. Since it is an inherited ailment so a review of your family history is required. To diagnose all three types of pkd, you may need to undergo an imaging tests to look for cysts of the kidney, liver, and other organs. A treatment may include pain medication, a low-sodium diet, surgery to drain cysts etc. Whether you have early-stage kidney disease or you're on dialysis, you'll likely be advised to limit your phosphorus intake. Nearly every food contains some phosphorus. The best way to limit phosphorus in your diet is to limit foods highest in phosphorus, including fast food, convenience foods and processed foods, which may be full of phosphorus additives. Foods rich in phosphorus. But as your uric acid is slightly high, you should also avoid high protein diet also.
