Oh boy do I have the same problems. I have been on anti inflammitories and in a boot since Sept. I have been very discouraged in the area of dieting and excersizing because of my limitations. My podiatrist thought I had a torn achilles and then after fighting with my ins I finally got a MRI and labs with discovered that I have high levels of UA, severe tendonitis, RA and a torn tendon. I have started looking into diet changes but I eat hardly anything on the list and when I do eat them its very little and a rare occasion. I am so overwhelmed :(

Hi, I am new to SparkPeople and this Team. I don't actually suffer from gout, but have osteoarthritis and a high uric acid level in my blood. I am drinking lots of water, tea and green tea. The doc told me to get on the net and find some dietary approaches to lowering my uric acid level. I have found conflicting information on the uric acid levels in vegetables and beans and lequmes. I hardly ever touch anything on the list of foods to avoid, and I don't drink. I also read that dietary adjustments seldom work. Does anyone have any experience with lowering uric acid with diet? Or any good references?
