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
