Hi! Iaware,
As the report suggests you have GOUT.
The medicine ZYLORIC has some side-effects on Kidneys. But not taking it will lead to deposition of uric acid crystals in Kidneys which are more harmful. So considering risk-benefit ratio ZYLORIC can be taken safely.
You must stop drinking. Drinking may cause increase of gout crystals.
