What do obesity, diabetes, fatty liver disease, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke, neurological disorder, and pre-mature death have in common? All can be stoked by high uric acid levels. In my interview with Dr. David Perlmutter about his newest book, Drop Acid, The Surprising New Science of Uric Acid, The Key to Losing Weight, Controlling Blood Sugar, and Achieving Extraordinary Health, he shares the important information about the link between high uric levels and metabolic disfunction. It sounds unbelievable because we haven’t really been paying attention. However, the science is clear and indicates that elevated uric acid levels is one of the greatest threats to our health today.
Dr. Perlmutter is a highly recognized author of several other New York Times bestselling books, including Grain Brain, which has sold over a million copies and has been translated in 32 languages!

If you are like most people, you probably haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about or even knowing your uric acid level and why this might be important. You will understand the importance once you listen to this interview and read Drop Acid! Dr. Perlmutter cites hundreds of studies that show the clear link between worsening health outcomes and elevated uric acid levels. In the interview, he shares fascinating information about how and why the body makes fat and how higher than optimal uric levels might be the missing link to why you are not losing weight. He talked about how you can easily check your uric acid level at home or have your doctor order a test with your routine blood work.
He shared how uric acid only comes from three sources, fructose, alcohol and purines, a breakdown product of DNA and RNA in foods and explains how each of these sources can elevate your level.
Dr. Perlmutter offers an empowering plan for addressing the growing health crisis and how to turn this around and take control of your health. In the book, he shares the LUV (lower uric values) Diet and offers almost 40 different recipes with a 30 day plan to reduce your level.
