You have not mentioned her symptoms and why did she undergo this test? Is there pain? U 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.

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.

Most of the time, a high uric acid level occurs when your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid efficiently. Things that may cause this slow-down in the removal of uric acid include rich foods, being overweight, having diabetes, taking certain diuretics (sometimes called water pills) and drinking too much alcohol. There are lots of information that needs to be explained in detail according to your report .each point plays a crucial role hence needs to be clarified.
