I’m a 38 years old male, 187 cm height 90 kg weight.

Recently my right knee got swollen and it hurt.
My doctor diagnosis was bursitis and he indicated an uric acid blood test and rest.

Uric acid turned to be 6.7 mg/dl.

The doctor said it is within the tolerance limits but on the high side, he said my bursitis could have been originated in many causes but he suggested me to look in the internet for an uric acid diet.

Now, of the things to be avoided that are in my daily diet the problem is coffee, I drink a lot of coffee and cant help avoiding it Sad

is coffee actually one of the worst things, can I keep drinking coffee?
Is my uric acid blood level so bad?

Thank you in advance, gustavo.-
