Brief Answer:
I need details

Detailed Answer:

Hi,
I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern.
I have evaluated your reports and your doctor is right. Medicine for uric acid needs to be given only if uric acid levels are >10 or if you have symptoms like joint pains.

So, i need to know, do you have any symptoms?

This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any other query, you may please ask me.
Stay Healthy.

Brief Answer:
Monitor

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
In my opinion you should monitor your Uric acid levels every 3 months.
If they increase further I would suggest you the medicine.
Drink plenty of water. Avoid excessive pulses intake. It's not that you can't eat pulses. Avoid extra in diet. Reduce eggs, meat, legumes, soybean in diet.
Good luck.

Take Care,
Dr Anshul Varshney
