Absolutely not, man: Uric acid in the reference range for a man. Send rate is worthless in the diagnosis of gout and this pathologist considers yours essentially normal. Don't focus on an important disease that you do not have. Find the correct explanation for your symptoms, with the same smarts that led you to rule out gout. Best wishes.
