Here are DQ’s latest results (so far as I know):
mid-January: 555
mid-March: 388
mid-April: 336
They were all done while allopurinol dosage was being increased and DQ is now taking even more than in mid-April.
I’m a bit of a blood testing skeptic so I don’t think you can avoid the ifs and maybes. That said, DQ is arguably not getting tested often enough considering the pace of the dosage adjustment.

Regarding drug vacations, couldn’t they be managed based on blood tests instead of ridiculously expensive DECT scans?
