Welcome to HCM
With information you have given mildly raised Uric acid level in case it is high risk factor for development of Gout with normal kidney
The drug you have been advised is good reduces uric acid level but we should know what is the cause for high uric acid level.
Some time it is precipitated by factors diuretics, alcohol, dietary excesses, surgery, trauma, sepsis
There are certain diet changes needs to be made,High-purine foods are red meat, liver, kidney, pulses, and whole grain cereals. If hypouricaemic agents are used pulses may be permitted.
If cause is detected then it may remain normal without drugs also but depends on cause?
If Obesity or Over weight a crash diet
should be avoided.
