Eating Oatmeal instead of rice?

Patient: Does oatmeal can be consumed at breakfast, lunch and dinner? and can oatmeal is a good substitute for rice?

 

 

Symptoms: high in uric acid

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for your question. Although oatmeal is an excellent source of carbohydrates we do recommend a diet that is ba lanced with lots of vegetables, fruit, and lean protein. From a medical standpoint, you are no danger from eating oatmeal three times a day. However, you may become bored of eating the same thing multiple times throughout the day.Thank you for choosing askthedoctor.com
