Can a beef broth increase level of uric acid? Can it also trigger gout?

In brief: No

Diets have little effect on serum uric acid.
Beef broth is highly unlikely to trigger a gouty attack.

In brief: Beef broth

Should not. Kidney impairment and diuretic meds are common causes.
Diet can aggravate. So avoid alcohol, animal fats, organ meats and shellfish. Limit other meats to 4 oz per day. Avoid high fructose corn syrup containing drinks. Add egg whites, quinoa, soy as protein. Eat lots of fruit and veggies. Drink 3 liters per day. Tart cherry juice daily can help.

In brief: Probably not

Beef broth is mostly salt water. I'd look for a different cause.
Have you been here with several questions about elevated uric acid, and why you were put on 'kitobest' without any reason to think you have significnat kidney disease? If this is you, please follow the suggestion of getting a second opinion in the real world. If not, please forgive my mistake.
