In brief: Forget diet

Studies have conclusively shown that diet has only a minimal effect on the serum uric acid level.
If you do not have a history of gout or kidney stones, do nothing. If you do, you need to be on allopurinol.

In brief: What to avoid

Avoid shellfish, red meat, and alcohol.
Cherry juice can help. Milk also can help. Maintain a normal weight.
