Is it true that elevated uric acid and gout can raise creatinine level? My nephro doctor told me so.

Is it true that elevated uric acid and gout can raise creatinine level? My nephro doctor told me so.

Yes: This happens when crystals of uric acid form in the kidney parenchyma -- "urate ephropathy". There is a severe acute form that is unmistakable; there's disagreement as to whether mild elevations of uric acid do this -- I'm a pathologist interested in kidney and haven't seen anatomic evidence that it's so. Consider adding a uric-acid lowering agent if you have clinical gout. ...Read more

I have gout and 1.7 creatinine level. My ultrasound shows normal. What does it mean?

I have gout and 1.7 creatinine level. My ultrasound shows normal. What does it mean?

Big picture: If you're fairly muscular, a 1.7 creatinine is probably normal for you; when I was lifting weights every day, my creatinine level was 1.7. I trust that your diagnosis of gout is correct and that you are taking maintenace medication for it. If so, uric acid nephropathy is unlikely. Unless your physician is grearly concerned or your urinalysis / concentrating ability is abnormal, I bet you're okay. ...Read more

I have gout and above normal creatinine. Can ketosteril together with colchicine be use in a long term?

I have gout and above normal creatinine. Can ketosteril together with colchicine be use in a long term?

No to Colchicine. I: Not sure what drug the ketosteril is?
Colchicine is not advised for gout except for acute attacks for short periods of time, otherwise the side effects are troublesome and with poor renal function (with high creatinine) you should take the least (if any) meds for it, like the nsaids. ...Read more

If your creatinine level becomes 1.7 because of high uric acid and gout and also because of dehydration. What should you do?

If your creatinine level becomes 1.7 because of high uric acid and gout and also because of dehydration. What should you do?

See details: I agree that kidney impairment with gout occurs after many years of uncontrolled disease. However, if you have gout you need to be on Allopurinol and just not colchicine. You must lower your serum uric acid under 6 mg/dl to prevent kidney stones, loss of kidney function, joint damage and other issues related to gout. ...Read more

Why would hco3 or sodium bicarbonate be elevated in a persons labs if they have gout?

Why would hco3 or sodium bicarbonate be elevated in a persons labs if they have gout?

They shouldn't: Gout occurs when uric acid is produced often in an acidic environment. Hco3 can be used as a buffer when added to water creating more alkalinity in the blood, preventing uric acid deposition in the joints. Perhaps your bodywork was performed after trying this treatment? Using hco3 can dangerously raise your bloodpressure, so be careful. ...Read more
