Hi and thanks for the query,
Raised SED rates deserve a formal exclusion of a chronic inflammatory process occurring in the body. It is logical seeking the expertize of a rheumatologist
since most of these conditions causing raised SED are rheumatologic in origin. It is not rare to find most people to have raised uric acid levels but do not develop any gout
. Only about 30% of the people who have raised uric acid levels shall eventually develop gout. It is however advisable to adopt a uric acid regulator diet when raised uric acid level are found. It is in no a direct indication that one shall develop gout. Wishing you good health and kind regards.
