Studies suggest!: Dietary changes do not yield major results. If your uric acid is too high, cutting alcohol and organ meats will help, but you should be on generic Allopurinol or uloric to take your level below 6 mg /dl! uric acid not only causes gout, kidney stones, but can damage the kidneys! your profile suggests you have metabolic syndrome, heading for type 2 diabetes, beware!

Adjust diet: Adjust diet to reduce amount of red meat, shellfish, alcohol consumption would be a start.

See details: If there is not history of gout or kidney stones, there is no reason to lower uric acid. If you do have one of these issues, Allopurinol would be the first option.

Metabolis by-product: Uric acid is formed in the process of metabolism of proteins by the body. It can also form with high cellular turnover in persons undergoing chemotherapy or treatment for cancer. Uric acid can get to high levels and precipitate out in the body in joints, soft tissues and in the kidneys to give "gout". Medications, diet, hydration are the treatments.

Lowering uric acid: To lower your uric acid level, follow the diet given at this link: http://www.Mayoclinic.Org/gout-diet/art-20048524. Certain medications can lower uric acid levels. Allopurinol prevents uric acid from being made by the body, colchecine makes the kidney eliminate more of it. Uloric is another drug that also effectively lowers uric acid. See a physician before starting any of these drugs.

Uric acid: Whether or not you need to lower your uric acid level depends on whether it is causing problems. The main issue with a high uric acid level is the possibility of having gout attacks. If you are not having negative effects from the elevated uric acid then it is called "asymptomatic hyperuricaemia" and it is generally not felt to be necessary to treat it. Follow-up with your doctor to discuss.
