the criteria you have mentioned may not be sufficient for a diagnosis, though i think she may have gout. you should get her serum uric acid examined since that is the criteria used for diagnosis and not blood urea. also if she has gout then the diet plan is wrong. she should be on a low protein diet.
hope she improves
