I got my first gout attack on Jan 24th and my uric acid levels were 8,4mg/dL. Sinse then I have been on a very strict vegiterian diet eating only low purine foods, no alchol and smaller portions. I have also be excersising a lot. My firends & family have all been commenting on how much I've changed.
But I'm still getting gout attacks and somewhat worringly, today I found out that my uric acid levels have rissen to 8,9mg/dL, after all the lifestyle changes I've made how could they rise so much?
Could something else be causing my high uric acid levels?
The doctor also did a blood test to check how my kidneys are functioning and it came back normal.
The doctor put me on a course of Allopurinol to dissolve the uric acid in my blood for 6weeks and take it from there.
I'm wondering if my situation is normal or if anything else could be causing my goute attacks rather than diet and lifestyle?
