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 ?
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.

Hi, I have a painful, fleshy (spongey) swelling on my right collar bone with pain emanating up my neck - across my shoulder and top of my right arm, and even in my back. I have been diagnosed with diabetes 2 (but with my complications, I think it s 1, and the metformin is not working.) about 5 years ago. I suffer from chronic gout (recently lost 60 lbs after changing diet) I also have a fleshy lump on my ribs on the left side of my torso also extremely painful to touch. I also have night sweats, fever and chills, which comes periodically - with the gout?? The gout seems to be more chronic than ever before. These lumps feel like fire burning throbbing through the area.... kind of like gout - but I;ve always had gout just in my feet..... Help! I had a step infection in my blood stream a few years ago following a robotic hysterectomy surgery.... could this be infection that was not cleared up - infecting my bones? I am in major pain.... ready to go to ER but I don t have any money or insurance - husband just left after 20 years of marriage; I am ready to die. Help!
Yes, I have was taking 100 mg of allopurinol and 0.6 colcrys to control my uric acid. When I saw the dr 2 weeks ago my uric acid was even higher. Seems high levels of uric acid runs in my family. The Dr wanted me to stop Colcrys and continue taking allopurinol but to increase it to 2x a day. Well, within a week I have an acute attack of gout. The dr then prescribed preisone and to go back on colcrys and continue w/allopurinol 2x a day. Things never calmed down and the gout got worse once the presone was stopped. This week the Dr prescribed MethyIPREDNISolone tablets 4 mg the swelling is gradually going away. No swelling in the morning and able to finally put my foot down again but the swelling in now on top of the foot and purple and the ankle is swollen. Going to see a foot doctor tomorrow to see if I need a boot put on the my foot to keep the pressure off of it for a while. I am so worried that once the MethyIPREDNISolone Table stop on Friday the Gout will return. Should I be increase the Allopuriol to 3 a day and does it cause weight loss and contine on with colcys?
I have a gout attack on the 2nd and 1st falange joint of the ring finger. Now the pain is getting better and swelling lesser. But the bones on the joint are slightly swollen and wider . Will the swelling in the bone also subside and the width of the joint become like before ?
