this condition is called hyperuricemia it is because the protien in the body should be metabolside so uric acid is the by product of this metabolism. the uric acid is excreted out by kidney normally uric acid is increased in the body . Take a diet with lesser protein intake. it can be caused becouse of less nzyme in your body which under excretes the uric acid. so you go to maintain strict diet principles go to a dietician and get the right diet you have a normal life if you follow the dietary restrictions as of pains. you are given pain killers and a medicine for long term called colchicine which you have to use longterm and keep checking thelevels of uric acid.

From your symptoms it appears that you suffer from Gout. High level of uric acid in the blood could also lead to formation of kidney stones, so consult a doctor who should be able to prescribe medicines to reduce your blood uric acid levels. All the best.

Increased uric acid in the body is a condition called as Gout. It can gradually lead to arthritis and is called as gouty arthritis.

I am a 44-year-old kidney donor and am experiencing gout. Can the gout damage my remaining kidney? Are the drugs used for gout toxic to the kidneys? I am 6'2 and 215 pounds and a vegetarian. The pain is very disabling. I see a nephrologist on Friday, because my PCP cannot get the gout under control. I have taken two courses of steroids and the joint is still swollen and stiff.

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?
