Forgive my frankness: Diabetes and tuberculosis are both extremely serious and the idea you have that food choices will cure either of them, or that anyone here can diagnose the cause of her weight loss, or that anyone can relate her uric acid level (which is normal but above we like to see in a gout patient) to any of this, are all badly mistaken. She's on TB Rx & if still losing weight needs a further workup.

Uric acid diet: Tart cherry juice is effective; avoid organ meats; fatty meats and alcohol will elevate uric acid. Avoid these. Also, drink at least 3 liters fluid per day - this may enhance uric acid excretion - and if you incline diet successfully to mostly whole grain, fruit, and veggies, and nuts, using white fish and egg white for protein, then uric acid levels will come down.
