Hi, when you have a gout attack your blood uric acid should go up at least 1/2-1 point IE if your uric acid is usually 6.5 it should go up to 7.0-7.5 during the attack and for a few weeks after it depending on how severe the attack is as your body is making the uric acid at the same amount PLUS you joint is dumping more uric acid into your blood form the flair up. I have gout that flairs up in my knee and my uric acid go’s from 5.5 to 6.4 during and for a week after the attack subsides. My normal uric acid is 11.0 but I am controlling it with baking soda which keeps it around 5.5-5.9.
