How to reduce serum uric acid

Hi ,

I am diabetic , was diagnosed with it about 2 months ago. Started taking raw green vegetables and fruits . For grain have been taking only moong dal sprouts, barley and bengal gram. My Hba1c has reduced to 7% from 11.1%. However my serum uric acid which was 5.2 two months ago has started to increase. It is now 7.1 in the last test. I am taking an ayurvedic medicine also for sugar control. How to reduce this serum uric acid. Please help.

yeah visited the site and searched for medicine... it says it contains..Gudmar, Jamun, Dalchini, Karala and Kutki etc.... besides this they may be adding something which is not kown to us...

However for some ppl legumes tend to increase uric acid..

to control sugar you need to restrict your carbs ..why not replace legumes with low carb vegetables and check again??

I got my eyes checked. The doctor did fundoscopy and told me it is fine. However If I get a spike in sugar level then I get burning sensation in the eyes. Also sometimes I see white dots also. My feet are little swollen in the evening. My doctor has advised me to take metaformin 500 mg after dinner. However I have not yet started it.

A small amount of uric acid passes out of the body in stool. But if too much uric acid is being produced or if the kidneys are not able to remove it from the blood normally, the level of uric acid in the blood increases. High levels of uric acid in the blood can cause solid crystals to form within joints.

Most of the time, a high uric acid level occurs when your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid efficiently. Things that may cause this slow-down in the removal of uric acid include rich foods, being overweight, having diabetes, taking certain diuretics (sometimes called water pills) and drinking too much alcohol. Other less common causes are a diet high in purine- Purine-rich diet — liver, game meat, anchovies, sardines, gravy, dried beans and peas, mushrooms, and other foods containing above items or your body producing too much uric acid.

Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood ialso include:

•Genetics (inherited tendencies)

•Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid)

•Immune-suppressing drugs

•Niacin, or vitamin B-3

•Obesity

•Psoriasis

Be careful about hoping to be satisfactorily treated by Ayurvedic doctors. I am a diabetic for 35 years now, and I do not take any ayurvedic treatment. My sugar levels, checked at home twice a day, twice a week, for years, has been within normal range in recent years. I depend on allopathic medication, including insulin injection, diet control, and some exercise. My lunch includes a bowl of curds and one spoon of Pathanjali honey. My HbA1c has come down to 6.5 from the 9.5 earlier.

6.5 isn't normal.

On 18th July 2017 my Serum Uric Acid registered @ 5.6 (from 4.4 earlier) and HbA1c 6.6 (from 8.0 earlier) My blood urea however remains high @ between 80 and 100.
