If the study was published in a decent journal, it almost certainly isn’t meaningless.
But note “hyperuricemia is not expected to be adequately or successfully improved by traditional urate lowering measures”. So it seems it would be relevant to people who keep getting abnormally high blood tests after taking drugs such as allopurinol. There should also be other signs pointing to “excess accumulation of fluids and salts”.
If I recall correctly, your tests were never really high in the first place.
