Hi. Here’s a quick feedback…
There’s noise in test results so 397 and 406 are basically the same.
Both of these values are too high. There was some uncertainty when all you had was the test result from June but it’s now become quite clear that 200mg is not a sufficient dose for you at this stage. So unless you know that there is a medical reason preventing you from taking more, you should talk to your doctor about increasing your allopurinol dose.
The status of your liver and kidneys should have been monitored along with your uric acid so your doctor should be able to tell you if your body is already struggling to deal with 200mg or if it looks like you could handle a larger dose.
Good luck curing your gout!
