In brief: Diet not helpful

Studies have clearly shown that diet has little benefit on serum uric acid levels no matter what other doctors may tell you.
The one thing you should do is minimize alcohol intake. If you have gout you should be on Allopurinol to normalize your uric acid levels and prevent future attacks. If there is no gout, you do not have to treat the uric acid level.
