What should I do to reduce my uric acid level?
I am confused what I am doing wrong. I have high uric acid level
Height: 68 inch
Uric acid level: 8.2
One year ago I was felling slight pain into my knees (especially after exercise)
I made a uric acid test about 5 months ago and it was 7.2. Doctor gave me Allopurinol and asked me to reduce weight. He also suggested quitting high protein food. I strictly followed the instructions and took medicine for one month. After one month my uric acid level went down to 5.9.
After looking at my report doctor said that it is normal now. And he asked me to stop taking medicine and suggested me to keep that strict diet. I didn’t take medicine for next month but I followed the gouty strict food.
Next month I made a test and my uric acid level was 7.6. I was really worried about it. I visited another doctor and he prescribed me Phlogenzym + synflex + Zyloric for 15 days, I took the medicine and tried to avoid all high purine food for two weeks and made a test and my uric acid level went down to 4.9. Doctor suggested me stop all three medicine and prescribed “Cartigen Plus” (Glucosamine 750mg + Chondroitin 600mg) composition.
So, was taking only Cartigen Plus medicine and simple strict diet. I again made a test after one month and uric acid was 8.2. L I don’t know what I am taking wrong. I am going to write the diet bellow which I have been taking for the last month. May be I am taking something wrong.
This was the whole month diet
1. Breakfast with Plain Pratha cooked in Olive Oil with black tea
2. Dinner and Lunch with cooked vegetable specially having potatoes + chapati
3. About 3-4 cups of black tea with milk everyday for whole month
4. Just 3 times chicken in whole month but very small amount about 50 gram
5. One cup of hot milk every night before go to bed
6. About 15 almonds daily
7. Green Tea 2-3 cups per day
8. 3-4 biscuits 4 times in a month
9. Oranges about 4-5 every day
11.About 20 Glass of water everyday
12. 3 km walk 5 days a week
I don’t think I took anything other than that.
I don’t get severe gout attacks just little pain sometimes.
In the medicine I took Cartigen Plus medicine Morning and evening.
I am really confused now. I have some questions.
Will this disease go with me for whole life?
Is there any cure?
If body generates uric acid more than food so what body exercise should I do?
From where can I have a full diet chart of low purine?
I am very thankful for your suggestionApril 10, 2013 at 10:40 pm #14769
Gout is not a disease that starts and stops. Once you get it, you have it for life, except for rare cases of secondary gout.
For most of us, the high uric acid that causes gout is a permanent result of genetic and other factors. Bad diet can make it worse, but healthy eating is rarely enough to control uric acid. Your first doctor found the answer – allopurinol.
Allopurinol is usually taken for life. Once you stop taking it, within two weeks, uric acid returns to a high level.
From looking at your diet, your purine intake is already very low, and further restrictions will not make much difference. More vitamin C and skim milk might make a slight difference, but I do not think they will get your uric acid down to 5 or lower.
My best advice is to get back on allopurinol. This time, adjust the dose until you reach 5 or lower.
To answer your list of questions:
Will this disease go with me for whole life? Yes
Is there any cure? No
If body generates uric acid more than food so what body exercise should I do? Regular, gentle, exercise is best, such as walking or swimming. Avoid anything that stresses the joints. Avoid dehydration.
From where can I have a full diet chart of low purine? Purines for gout sufferers
