Our expert says:
High uric acid is a hereditary condition and taking 300 mg Allopurinol per day usually brings the uric acid down if you take it regularly for a few months (one usually needs to take it longterm). Uric acid in itself usually does not damage the kidneys. Avoid foods rich in purines (a protein) like
•Beer, other alcoholic beverages.
•Anchovies, sardines in oil, fish roes, herring.
•Organ meat (liver, kidneys, sweetbreads)
•Legumes (dried beans, peas)
•Meat extracts, consomme, gravies.
•Mushrooms, spinach, asparagus, cauliflower
High uric acid can cause gouty arthritis
