Hello there. I can understand your concern. Just taking medicines won't be enough, you will have to make some diet changes also. Avoid a high protein diet. Uric acid is a end product of protein metabolism. So restricting the protein intake will help. Also, consult a rheumatologist in person for further management. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.
