FOOD DOES NOT CONTAIN URIC ACID. ITS CONVERTED IN THE BODY BY SUCROSE/FRUCTOSE
What does Fructose/Sucrose do?
It casues increase in Uric Acid by high Nucleotide turnover and oxidative stress in other words fat accumulation. This leads to increase incidence of Metabolic diseases and Diabetes.
Not many people know about stopping all sugars is the first step to lower Uric Acid
(sucrose the table sugar and fructose present as corn syrup in varitey of boxed and packed items and cold drinks).
Whereas there is lot of confusion what to eat and what no to eat, I have compiled an easy list especially for my Indian patients.
Slow release whole carbs like oats, whole wheat, brown rice
Fruits low in sugar like apples and pears
Not to Eat/Drink
Sugar: table sugar
Fructose( cold drinks, fruit juices, corn syrup, too much honey)
Organ meats like Liver
Shrimp and Lobster
To Eat less
Lean meats like chicken/turkey
Interesting Fact: You can still drink a glass of Red Wine.
