I’ve checked PubMed for saw palmetto. Because I’ve never heard of it before. Which would surprise me, if it had any connection to gout treatment. But there is nothing.

I found 20 studies on saw palmetto or Serenoa repens. But they were mostly related to prostate or urinary tract problems. Then I found another 515 studies that mentioned saw palmetto or Serenoa repens. But definitely no mention of gout or uric acid.

So, Ednan, I think you have 2 options:
Either 1) Seek a better doctor.
Or 2) Go back for a blood test after 2 weeks and see if your uric acid has reduced.
