Uric acid is a type of chemical that is created when the body breaks down substances called purines.
The purines are normally produced in the body and are also found in some foods and drinks.
Foods that contain a high content of purines include liver, anchovies, mackerel, dried beans and peas, and beer.
Most of the time, a high uric acid level occurs when your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid efficiently.
Things that can cause this slow-down in the removal of uric acid include rich foods, being overweight, having diabetes, taking certain diuretics (sometimes called water pills) and drinking too much alcohol.
Some ways you can lower your uric acid in your body are.
Limit purine-rich foods. You can limit the source of uric acid in your diet.
Avoid sugar. Sugary foods.
Drink more water.
Manage blood sugar.
Add more fiber to your diet.
