You consulted for Pain in toes? is there is Gouty arthritis or not if no arthritis and serum uric acid level is high ( Asymptomatic ) Gouty Arthritis is treated by anti inflamatory drugs or Colchicine but if no arthritis. Then one can try to what is the cause of high uric acid level.Why do you take Rabeprazole?
One can reduce high purine diet that means avoid Non veg diet.Avoid Dehydration,Alcohol,prolonged fasting,any diuretic drug.
If obese reduce weight ,If hi cholestero or high BP l control it or use drugs for it.
Any kidney disease needs to be investigated there are many drugs which can increase the uric acid
Fabuget will reduce uric acid level it can cause Nausea or Loose motions in minority cases but one of PPI Rabeparezole use may predispose you to stomach Infection.
you may take precautions and diet modifications after some time recheck Uric acid level and follow up with the Physician/Rheumatologist would be advisable good Luck.
