The Correlations Between High Uric Acid Cortisol
Q1: Does weight lifting and heavy training help in reducing uric acid?
Q2: Is there a correlation between overactive-bladder and high uric acid?
Is uric acid level of 469.08 umol/l is too high? Some laboratory says normal value from 89-417 umol/l, some says 208-506 umol/l. Im 32 yrs old male.
How do you FEEL?: This is above the top of the reference range, but not outrageously high. Most folks with somewhat high uric acid never get gout or any other troubles from it. Especially, i'd warn you against seeking to take medication to treat a high lab value. Your physician can guide you here. I. ...Read more
Look at trend also: If a lab test is abnormal, it is important to get older records to see how quickly it is changing and how abnormal is has been. That information can be obtained by a primary care doctor who can then refer a patient to providers with special expertise if needed. ...Read more
2 Causes: Excess uric acid is either caused by under excretion (kidneys) or overproduction. The latter is often due to an enzyme deficiency, and made worse by a high purine (protein) diet. A low purine diet, good hydration and talking to your doctor about possibly taking Allopurinol should help. ...Read more
Might not be gout: Pain under both knees is unlikely gout. Usually gout is 1 joint. The affected joint is almost always red, hot, swollen and in fact frequently looks infected. The high uric acid may be unrelated, many people with high levels do not develop out. The only way to truly diagnose gout is to stick a needle in the joint, drain the fluid and look at it under a polarized light. Treatment depends on dx. ...Read more
Don't do that.: I don't take or recommend supplements of any kind unless there is a documented medical need. 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
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
Depends and yes: Gout can be dangerous by causing joint damage after repeated flares. High uric acid generally isn't dangerous though may lead to worsening of kidney problems. Most people with high uric acid don't have gout. Only 5% of people with uric acid of 9 (fairly high) develop gout each year. Also it's possible to have a "normal" uric acid and have gout -- especially if uric acid is checked during a flare. ...Read more
