@Colin – building up on nobody’s responses; I think the focus should be on reducing your uric acid levels and maintaining a healthy diet. Keep as close as you can to the line and try not to deviate from it. Too much obsessing on food will only cause you to go mentally feeble. Trust me, been there.

How is your blood condition these days? Another way for reducing haemoglobin is to drink plenty of water as you do but be careful with this. Do not believe the hype that gallons of water will flush and flush uric acid. It does help a lot but as with anything there will be a ceiling to the benefit. Excessive water also causes your sodium levels to drop and you do not want this as you need salts in your blood. Moderation is the key.

Keep us posted.
