Diet to reduce uric acid

Recently, we noticed that my mother's feet had swollen up and got routine tests done and her Uric Acid was found to be 6.15 mg/dl, the reference range being 2.6 to 6 for a female. What are some diet changes she should make to bring it under control? She has gotten very bulky over some time and walking causes pain around her knees and ankles. Please suggest some suitable exercise too if possible.
