Hello There. I can understand your concern. whats his uric acid level you have not mentioned. uric acid crystals can deposit in the joint spaces and cause swelling and pain. uric acid is a metabolic product of certain proteins. ask him to restrict his protein intake and then based on the reports, the uric acid lowering agents can be prescribed. Best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain.
