Uric acid: Uric acid causes gout. Tart cherry juice is effective against gout; meats raise uric acid; avoid organ meats; fatty meats and alcohol will aggravate gout. Avoid these. Also, drink at least 3 liters fluid per day - to enhance uric acid excretion - incline diet to mostly whole grain, fruit, and veggies, using egg white for protein, then uric acid levels will come down.
