You can try and change your diet by minimizing the intake of certain foods that are high in uric acid, which includes red meats, mushrooms, organ meats, anchovies, and others. Minimizing the intake of these foods will help with the problem of gout and gouty arthritis.
Take in a healthy dose of vitamin C to help reduce the amount of uric acid in your system. Continuously taking in 500 milligrams of this vitamin will decrease your uric acid levels in a month or two.
Cherries are also a good way to treat gout and uric acid problems from home.
A daily dose of a cup of fresh cherries that you can either make into a juice or simply eaten as is can help lower your uric acid levels.
Taking in milk and yogurt can also help lower uric acid levels in your body. Eating a cup of fresh yogurt at least once every two days or even once a day significantly decreases the level of uric acid in a persons body. The same happens when a person takes in a glass of milk every day.

Tips for increased uric acid levels and gout

Watch your weight. Try to lose weight slowly. Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day. Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily. Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil. Eat no more than 100g of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day. Drink alcohol only occasionally, as it affects the elimination of uric acid. Eat low-fat food. The consumption of high-fat foods encourages weight gain. Drink at least two litres of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice.

To help with practical diet planning, it can help to gain advice from a qualified dietician. They will be able to clarify any questions you have and healthily and effectively reduce your values.
