High plasma uric acid (UA) is a precipitating factor for gout and renal calculi as well as a strong risk factor for Metabolic Syndrome and cardiovascular disease. The main causes for higher plasma UA are either lower excretion, higher synthesis or both. Higher waist circumference and the BMI are associated with higher insulin resistance and leptin production, and both reduce uric acid excretion. The synthesis of fatty acids (tryglicerides) in the liver is associated with the de novo synthesis of purine, accelerating UA production. high intake of fructose-rich industrialized food and high alcohol intake (particularly beer) seem to influence uricemia. It is not known whether UA would be a causal factor or an antioxidant protective response. Most authors do not consider the UA as a risk factor but as presenting antioxidant function. UA contributes to > 50% of the antioxidant capacity of the blood. hence while treating patients with high uric acid we must take care of Obesity, High carb intake and oxidative stress .
all our diet kits are efficient in reducing weight, reducing abdominal girth and rich source of antioxidants. also, we don’t allow Nonveg consumption during diet kit .
hence in such cases, you can start any of the above-mentioned diet kits.
Milk and salads are indicated in gout , some vegetables like spinach may have high purine, but studies show they don’t raise the risk of gout or gout attacks.
if your patient has completed a diet kit then you can start with the following diet chart which will help him to control uric acid.
