Following diet and lifestyle changes will be helpful :-
1. Avoid alcohol.
2. Reduce purine rich food like organ meat(liver, kidney,etc), legumes(beans and peas), gravies, mushrooms, spinach, asparagus, cauliflower, etc.
3. Avoid excessive eating at every meals.
4. Avoid salad dressings, ice creams and fried foods.
5. Donot loose weight quickly as it may result in uric stones.

You can follow these simple precautions in your diet.
Avoiding fatty foods and regular exercise will also help in controlling your cholesterol levels.
Also get yourself examined by a Physician for any medication if needed.

I hope this is helpful to you.
