Hi Clement,

Maybe now is a good time to start a new topic dedicated to your gout problem(s). Because I can’t really see what the true problem is.

It seems like your uric acid results are up and down. But we don’t have enough information. Because details are very important when we look at uric acid blood test results.

It would be best to create a list of dates of test results. Also, if you’ve been taking herbal gout medicine, has that been consistent throughout the period?

Another explanation is the 5mg/dL result is just plain wrong. Because not every blood test is accurate. Which is why a good doctor will always take a second test when they see unexpected results.
