My Biochemical test report of Uric Acid is showing 7.0 and the reference range is between 3.5 to 7.2 . Please advise some suggestions to control this.
Your uric acid level at 7.0 mg/dL is at the top value of the normal range.
Gout occurs when there is too much uric acid in the blood and tissues which causes the uric acid to turn into crystals in the joints. The uric acid crystals can also form or deposit in the kidneys causing kidney stones. As your level of uric acid is at the higher level of normal you have an increased risk of these crystals forming.
The uric acid levels can become high due to an increased amount of purines in the diet which are broken down in the body to uric acid. An increase in uric acid levels may also be caused by a decrease in the amount of uric acid being excreted or removed from the body, so that it accumulates.
Since your uric acid level at the higher level of normal you may be able to reduce the level by making some changes your diet and increasing water intake.
this does not totally give you the answer just guidelines I had the same problem the doctor told me when Uric levels are high (sounds like you are at the point you need to watch the rich foods) don't have to stop them just take it slower, they gave me a medication but I can't recall what it was anyway he sound really high levels of uric acid and sedimentation rate can cause gout please take good care and maybe at least I have told you something that will be of some small help you take good care and keep me informed
