Alcohol increases uric acid production and interferes with its elimination from the body. Generally, men should consume no more than two drinks daily and women no more than one. A standard drink is about 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1.5 ounces (a shot) of liquor or brandy. Some individuals may need to avoid alcohol entirely, so talk to your doctor about your alcohol consumption.
