Yes, I was surprised and confused by 2.7mg/dL. But, I think most doctors and patients would be pleased with 0.27 mmol/L. Personally, I wanted a lower uric acid level to speed dissolving tophi. Because I had untreated excess uric acid for many years before I came to my senses and started allopurinol.

Like every aspect of gout management, uric acid targets have to be set according to individual needs. So, Rebecca, I’m surprised that your doctor didn’t explain why she thought a lower target suited your case.

It’s obvious at 0.27 that you are on your way to gout recovery. That’s excellent news. But I still don’t understand what the issues are? Do you want to speed up your recovery? Then, increase your dose. If you’re happy as things are, then stay on 100mg. If you have doubts, please tell me what they are, and I’ll try to explain better.
