Is level of 9.1 for uric acid too high ?

Hi I am 31 yr old male. Nonvegeterian and occasional drinker ( avg 3 times/month). Recently detected for high uric acid i.e. 9.1. Immediately consulted my doctor . He started Zyloric BID. I have put on strict diet control which is stopped nonveg and alcohol. Is this level (9.1 ) too much than other high uric acid patients? IS it controllable ?

HI MT!
Welcome to healthcaremagic.com.Hyperurecimia is when serum uric acid levels are >6mg/dl in women and >6.8mg/dl in men.Untreated it can lead to gout and hence renal failure.Non veg diet and alcohol cause this condition so it has to be restricted and treatment taken till levels are normal.

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.
