Eating Oatmeal instead of rice?

Patient

Q: 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

A:   Thank you for your question. Although oatmeal is an excellent source of carbohydrates we do recommend a diet that is balanced 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.
