Uric acid is a waste products after it breaks down purines in the body. After its breakdown, this resulting waste will deposit into your bloodstream.

Gout diet

Since purine chemicals are converted by the body into uric acid, purine-rich foods should be avoided. Purine high foods include shellfish and organ meats such as liver, brains, kidneys and sweetbreads. It is reported that meat or seafood increases the risk of gout attacks, while dairy foods seem to reduce the risk. Decrease your protein intake and increase your fruit and vegetable intake. Reduce your alcohol consumption. This is because beer and wine contain high amounts of purines.

Medical treatment 


Dialysis is one way to eliminate excessive wastes from your body in urine. This helps reduce uric acid level to some extent.

Chinese herbs

Some traditional Chinese herbs can dilate blood vessels, increase blood flow, which contributes to expel some uric acid through blood flow. In addition, these Chinese herbs are natural and effective to repair damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. As long as kidney function is enhanced, its ability to remove uric acid is elevated.
