Hi,

I passed carefully through your question and would explain that his uric acid plasma levels seem to be a little elevated. For this reason, I would recommend a low protein diet, avoid been and other similar vegetables and take plenty of water.

If high uric acid plasma levels persist, I would recommend discussing with his doctor on the possibility of taking Allopurinol.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka,
Cardiologist
