Good Day! Your G.P. might need to adjust your medicine to decrease blood levels of uric acid and to decrease your liver enzymes. It is also important for you have a very healthy lifestyle if you are serious about your health. You should be on a low purine diet (the internet is full of resources and diet plans for it). If you consume a low purine diet then your uric acid will go down with the help of the medicines.

Good Luck.
