How to control uric acid levels? - Online Doctor Chats
hello doctor, how to control Uric acid levels?
Dr XXXXXXX here
Other day, I had some Pork from a chinese restaurent
and next day I suffered due to this
happens even when I have beer
Do you mean your uric acid levels went up?
good morning Doctor
Have you checked the levels?
I had a chat with a doc and he told me this may be due to uric acid level going up
Let me brief you.
It is true that uric acid levels can increase with increase consumption of proteins.
so no symptoms?
you would need to do some tests that include serum uric acid levels.
If high uric acid level is confirmed on test
i do get joint pains, none of the other...
we can control it by means of drugs.
Other drugs like probenecid can be used in treating high uric acid levels.
for me this happens only when I have beer or when I eat pork
i am perfectly normal and in perfect shape, cycle to work etc.
However this needs to be confirmed with tests before starting the treatment.
So it would be ideal to get the serum uric acid levels tested.
any over the counter drug I can take?
We can initiate treatment through your local doctor after reviewing the report.
it just lasts a day
You can try over the counter pain killers during acute painful situation.
if untreated will it lead to any complication?
Uricosuric drugs are suggested upon confirmation.
As I mentioned most often high uric acids is associated with no symptoms.
A few develop gout (swollen joints with pain).
and renal problems.
The condition usually is short lived and disappear with time and treatment.
Rarely such conditions can become chronic which can interfere with activities.
Yes. you can try crocin pain relief during acute pain
Have you followed what I suggested?
yes I did
Do you have any other query?
none doc, you answered... only one thing, can I get the name of some low intensity drug which I can take other than pain killer?
Treatment of high uric acid levels consists of 2 things
1. Treating the symptoms.
The pain killers can take care of it.
They are given as per the needs of the patient
ok doc, thats it. Thanks a lot, have a good day and bye for now
2. Controlling the levels. It is necessary that you know your levels before commencing on the medications
Hence do get the levels before starting on any uricosuric drugs.
Hope it is clear.
Do you have any other query?
yes, it is, thanks a ton
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
