May not need any med: Uloric is not a first line treatment for gout and is very expensive. If you do not have a history of gout, no medication is needed.

My urine volume for uric acid testing was 6300 ml.  Would that increase make a ua result of 1216 mg normal ? Do you adjust for volume ? Ty

Not really: Making 6 liters of urine means you drank a whole lot, likely too much. That said, it should effect your uric acid excretion too much. I would repeat the test with a more normal 2-3 liter oral intake of fluids. You should also have your blood uric acid level checked, and you urine ph with a dipstick. ...Read more

My blood and urine test result are worrying me. it shows high Uric acid levels and traces of blood in urine.

My blood and urine test result are worrying me. it shows high Uric acid levels and traces of blood in urine.

See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, uric acid levels in urine are not meaningful, it is the blood level that counts. A few red cells in urine are not abnormal, and trace may be the same. It would be prudent to discuss the issue with your doctor who ordered the tests. ...Read more

Daughter 2.5 yrs old has crystals in urine. Ultrsoundof kidneys normal. Urine analysis normal. But uric acid/ creatinine 1.1 and calcium/cr .26. Why ?

Daughter 2.5 yrs old has crystals in urine. Ultrsoundof kidneys normal. Urine analysis normal. But uric acid/ creatinine 1.1 and calcium/cr .26. Why ?

What's the worry?: Crystals precipitate in most people's urine as it cools and usually mean absolutely nothing. The amount of uric acid is mostly a function of its production which is mostly about diet and not a worry. Calcium / creatinine ratio in grams/grams of .260 is normal. Perhaps there is a misunderstanding. ...Read more

Lots of things: But the most common cause for blood in the urine is called familia hematuria. In this condition blood always shows up in the urine life long after extensive work up but is totally harmless. Bloodwork is always normal. Hopefully this is the case but it sounds like you are in good hands and if it is something else they will figure it out and explain it to you. ...Read more

Diet Sprite: Here's any easy tip. Drink a lot of diet sprite. Why diet? --no calories. Why sprite? Cheap way to get citrates and citric acid which decrease calcium and oxalate supersaturation. Plus the volume increases urine output. Several glasses a day can help. Other rich in citrate drinks can also be used. ...Read more

Can i take lisinopril, amlodipine, and furosemide for high creatinine and protein in urine, while i also have high uric acid levels?

Can i take lisinopril, amlodipine, and furosemide for high creatinine and protein in urine, while i also have high uric acid levels?

Meds for proteinuria: Lisinopril (l) is an excellent drug for reducing proteinuria (p) and blood pressure control. With a high creatinine, you need to be under the care of a nephrologist (n) to make sure you can preserve your kidney function as long as possible. You also need to have a 24 hour urine collection to assess your kidney function and to see how much p you have. A n can also help with your uric acid problem. ...Read more
