High uric acid

In today's test - kidney panel, KFT, Serum - the uric acid content in blood was found to be 8.30 mg/dL. The lab's normal range is 3.5-7.2 mg/dL. How can I bring my uric acid levels down to normal? Please note: I had kidney stones in 2012 and 2015 (November). They passed out after I drank a lot of water. I don't want to ever suffer the pain of stone or have any other problem with kidneys. Please advise what should I avoid eating and if medication is required. I don't suffer from diabetes or high blood pressure. Thanks.
