I see some posts saying that under 3mg/dl blood uric acid levels are the "NEW" safe level for Gout patients. I have been on 300mg Allopurinol for 10+ years with no side effects and 0 Gout attacks. I am 46 years old and have always been active and super fit. Vegan 20 years too!!!! Talk about Gout being cruel!!! lol
I thought the "older" under 5mg/dl was the safe level? Where did this new info of under 3mg/dl being the new safe level come from? Any links?
My GP last week told me to stop taking 300mg Allopurinol and reduce to 100mg Allopurinol or my kidney will get damaged. My kidney numbers are normal! Isn't higher blood uric acid levels that will damage my kidneys and cardio health?
So I am not convinced about reducing my 300mg Allopurinol to 100mg/dl but I want to point some research in my GP's direction
