Dear Gout patient,
Do you also have high blood pressure or sugar? That may be the reason for passing proteins in the urine. If so, then correcting those illnesses would control your proteinuria. Gout is due to accumulation of uric acid especially in the joints. To decrease that newer medicines like febuxostat is now available apart from allopurinol (zyloric). Also having a bland, non spicy diet with a lot of fluid intake will give you freedom from pain. Stop alcohol intake if any and have more of fiber rich foods like salads and sprouts.
Till then you can use a painkiller like naproxen 500 mg twice daily.
