Suffering from Gout. What is the uric acid level? What is going on?

Hello Doctor, my wife is suffering from Gout right now. Actually when we tested the uric acid in her blood it was 7 mg/dl in January 2012 , but after taking the ayurvedic treatment when we last tested it was 3 mg/dl in July 2012 . But now this disease is not going 100% from her body, she is still suffering from little little pains. Can you please suggest?

Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at HCM!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query.

Gout is a painful condition due to deposition of uric acid crystals in the normal tissues- usually at the joints.
Treatment is Allopurinol taken orally under medical guidance. Pian is due to uric acid deposits irrespective of blood levels. that is why she has pain.

I am not able to tell you about ayurvedic treatment.
In allopathy, a good physician will guide you in treatment with allopurinol and supportive treatment.
Please post results of all the tests done here, so that I can advise precisely.

I hope you are fully satisfied with the guidance I gave.
I would be glad to answer any further queries.
Thank you and Good luck!
