Colchicine: Colchicine (C) reduces uric acid levels in patients who do not excrete a normal amount in their urine, under-excretrs. C increases the urinary output of uric acid (U), lowering U levels in those persons. If one is an over-producer or normal producer of U, C will be of no use. You can reduce U by staying well hydrated and by avoid eating organ meats, such as liver.
