At the very least, you are requiring your liver and kidneys to process a substance that you already have plenty of, possibly overloading or impairing the function of those vital organs. In your case, kidney function is negatively influenced over time by gout, so i would not do anything to worsen that ...Read more

I am 18years old but my uric acid index ald high, what the reason and how could i do?

Rx person, not labs: If you do not have symptoms or signs of gout, and the value is only slightly high, and you're not drinking a lot of alcohol, and your kidney function tests are otherwise normal, i'd remember this but not try to alter a lab value. Should it persist, consider some modest dietary alterations that might lower your uric acid output ("low purine). If gout does develop, long-term rx usually works well. ...Read more
