Thanks for the query.

After considering high blood pressure, hyperthyroidism and hyperuricemia, the dietary recommendations are:
Diet to be taken:
Whole grains like millet, brown rice, nuts and seeds.
Fruits, especially citrus fruits.
Vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard greens, XXXXXXX
Flaxseed oil etc which contain omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin D.
Soybeans, soy products.
High fiber diet.
B-complex, zinc, vitamin C supplements.

Salt intake should be restricted. Means the sodium intake should be less than 2gms/day.
High fat dairy products, meat extracts, some fish types (sardines, herring, mackerel, anchovy).
Plants with high content of purine like spinach, peas, beans etc.
Excessive intake of caffeine, tea.

The medicines to be continued.
Maintaining ideal weight and exercises, yoga etc. will help.
