Hi Arun
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
uric acid can be lowered by decreasing protein intake ,along with drugs to reduce uric acid level.
There are other medications also to reduce uric acid level.Actually complete investigation is required.In my opinion if there are no major complications then we should go for first line drugs initially.
Good Luck!!!!!
