Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

There are certain foods that contain a high level of uric acid. You should try to reduce your intake of these foods.

Some of these foods are: (1)alcohol

(2)avoid fructose- sweetened sodas, high fructose corn syrup

(3)avoid meats such as sweetbreads, liver, kidney

(4)reduce beef, lamb, tuna, mackerel, herring, anchovies, shrimp----these foods can be reduced, may not need to stop completely

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
