I have just received the results of my bloodtests. Liver and kidney function normal. Uric acid level 356. Two years ago, when I discontinued Allupurinol, my levels were recorded at 536 although I was informed they were normal at the time. Although much less pain, the ankle is still badly swollen. I will continue the medication as prescribed, but have further appointment to review next Monday. I am overweight so hope a gentle diet will brong the levels down further. GP prescribing colchasine in case of further flare up, but will also refer to rhuematology to rule out one sided arthritis if flare up doesnt subside.
