Whether or not ...: Hyperuricemia will continue to build up uric acid deposits in your body. It can also cause kidney disease, apart from kidney stones.

Having hpv 16&58 had cold knife conization 2 weeks ago due to HGSIL. Waiting for pathology results. Your advice for boosting immunity. I don't smoke.

Too late for vaccine: At age 45 + the presence of HGSIL already, it is too late to be immunized with the HPV vaccine which is recommended for ages 11 and up for both boys and girls.
