Brian, there are other reasons for a high uric acid, but I assume it is gout. Before you can treat it you first have to find out whether you produce too much uric acid or if it is not removed from the blood sufficiently enough by the kidneys. Once you know th cause, you can start treating it. There is also a diet you should foloow and if you mail me at, I’ll send you something I wrote on the subject a while ago. Good luck.
