Doctor:There are medications which are prescribed to reduce the uric acid levels. But are advised to do so only when it is high.

Doctor:You can explain the reason to avoid and health comes first.
User:i dont want to reveal that in formal parties

Doctor:so lets first document it that you have high levels of uric acid after a party or so and if required you can get the medicine prescribed which you can take while attending functions.
User:ya very right
Doctor:Get Sr Uric acid, Blood urea Nitrogen and Sr Creatinine levels.
Doctor:you can upload the reports here or can post a query along with the reports so that we can advise you what would be the best for you.
User:dr reports will only shoe high level of uric acid if i have a high protein diet a day before other wise the report will be normal
Doctor:Yes, but as you said that when you attend functions. So you can get a test done the next day after attending a function
Doctor:we will come to know how much it increases
User:dr it is obvious that the level will go up after the high protein diet
Doctor:so accordingly we can advise on treatment and dosage.
Doctor:Is there anything else you would like to know?
