In brief: Low purine diet
Low purine foods include milk, egg whites, vegetables, berries, breads and pasta.
Avoid alcohol and high purine foods such as red meat, salty fish, liver, gravy, mincemeat, scallop and mussels. All protein contains purines and should be consumed in moderation. Consult your doctor for a balanced diet so that you are still getting all your nutrients.

In brief: Veggies, dairy, C
Vegetarians do best.
Adding lowfat dairy and vitamin c helps. Agree with dr. Ferdowski.
