Brief Answer:
The levels are high.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
I've reviewed the reports,

The levels of uric acid should be maintained at less than 6.0 for the patients of gout so that the extra crystals do not deposit in the joints causing such pain and inflammation.

Your uric acid levels are still on a higher side and need to be controlled with proper prescription medicines.

I hope this answers your query.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.

Regards.

Hi, my dad's blood pressure has been up since yesterday (ranges from 182/100 to 201/100). My dad says that he feels fine regardless. He's been taking his med, but his rheumatologist doctor told me that he has edema and gout. He received a shot for his gout yesterday, which relieved his pain, but his bp is still very high. I haven't heard from my dad's cardiologist on what to do, but is there anything I can do at home to improve his bp? My dad's bp normally averages 160/90. Thanks for your help.

A few days ago, one of my toes started itching, then swelled up and turned red at the tip. Then, 3 days ago, I developed a hives like rash covering pretty much my whole body. Today, I have blisters on the affected toe and also smaller ones in the area around it. Went to the doctor and she had me get a blood test for uric acid (testing for gout, I guess). The uric acid test is in normal range - 6.1. The toe is not painful, but itches like there is no tomorrow. I am a 60-yo male, and active - I do water aerobics and walk 2+ miles. Also have been hiking recently. Any ideas?
