Thank you, I found this information useful. But, I would like to ask more.

I am 68 years old and never suffered from gout. However, in December 2016 I started drinking pomegranate juice ( prepared by
Warming pomegranate seed in warm water
This is not fresh pomegranate but dried seed bought from Amazon)
Within weeks my Uric acid levels shot up
From completely normal to 430 µmol/L

I am generally healthy and not excessive drinker etc.. I did not change any of my habits in the last 7/8 months. The only addition was the pomegranate juice!!!

Any comments, please.
I am a pharmacist and have practiced for 49 years plus as a professional.

I am stopping to take the pomegranate juice today and will monitor the levels in 2 months and report
