I just got my Uric Acid lab work back and the result is 397, so I have dropped from 519 to 397 and had been taking allopurinol for 44 days at the time of my uric acid test. I am quite pleased with the results and will keep on taking allopurinol at 100mg. Any ideas on how long the uric acid in my joints and organs will continue to clear themselves? I believe I remember reading in this web site that it can take up to a year and more to clear stored uric acid out of the body.
