With uric acid over 7mg/dL, your health is at serious risk. Uric acid crystals are growing in your body every day. You will have some pain free days. But, gout attacks will spread to more parts of your body. They will become more frequent, and more intense.

As you are only just over 7, you might be able to improve your diet. Diet changes can take a long time to be effective, so you can also consider uric acid lowering treatment from your doctor.

I have to say that your current diet is terrible! No fruit! No vegetables!

My immediate advice is to start eating fruit and vegetables. They should be at least half of your total daily calorie intake. After that, post details of your usual weekly food and drink intake, plus your height and weight. Then I can assess where you can make more improvements.
