Foods to reduce uric acid levels

If you are affected by high uric acid levels, you can solve the issue with a healthy diet. Avoiding some foods with high uric acid levels is also important.

There are many causes of joint and bone pain. One such common issue is high uric acid levels which can cause joint and bone pain. This is also called hyperuricemia. 

How can foods affect uric acid levels?

Consuming foods rich in purines leads to the formation of uric acid in excess in the body. Most of this uric acid dissolves in the blood and travels to the kidneys. This is excreted through urine. But, if uric acid builds up in the body too much, then the kidneys are unable to filter out all the uric acid. This increases the level of uric acid in the blood. Its increase can lead to gout and kidney-related problems.

Why does uric acid increase?

The reason for the problem of gout is the growth of MSU crystals in the synovial fluid. Synovial fluid acts as a lubricant in all the joints of the bones. The increase in the amount of uric acid also affects the kidneys. When MSU crystals start to settle on the joints of the bones, the problem of joint pain and swelling develops due to lack of lubrication. You can include these foods in your diet to reduce uric acid
