How should I decrease blood uric acid and what foods/fruit/vegetables should I necessarily avoid?
You should do-- watch your weight. Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day. Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily. Drink plenty of fluids. Avoid alcohol if you smoke, stop it. Add more fiber to your diet. Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, which provide complex carbohydrates. Avoid foods and beverages with high-fructose corn syrup, and limit consumption of naturally sweet fruit juices. Good sources of low-purine nuts and seeds include walnuts, almonds, flaxseeds and cashew nuts. U can take one handful of these nuts (mixed) everyday curd is very good for you.

Gout occurs when there is too much uric acid in the blood and tissues which causes the uric acid to turn into crystals in the joints. The uric acid crystals can also form or deposit in the kidneys causing kidney stones. Let's have a detailed discussion to ensure proper treatment.

I am 73 years old male. Presently suffering from gout pain since one week, my right big toe joints red swollen. Initially I took voveran 50 for 2 days @ two tablets per day. But pain was not reduced significantly. So I stopped voveran. For the last two days I was combiflam when improvement was much better, but I had to stop combiflam as I faced high and acidity and indigestion. Pain has come back again. My uric acd content is 7 - 8. Kindly advice.
