The use of a low-purine diet may significantly lower serum uric acid levels. This diet principally consists of sugars, starches, and fats, with protein supplied by eggs and cheese. The following foods should be avoided:

  • Meats
  • Poultry

  • Seafood
  • Organ meats
  • Alcohol
  • Beans
  • Peas
