Hi, I’ve had gout for around 8 years and I have been managing it fine with Allopurinol but I recently had to stop due to it causing ‘reactive lymphoid follicular hyperplasia’ (i will discuss that in another post). Since dropping Allopurinol I had a small attack so I got myself a uric acid testing machine to see what my levels are doing.

This morning my levels were 6.4mg/dl (not great) but after running for 6km (around 30mins) I had lunch and re-tested. My first reading was 12.1mg/dl! Shocked I re-tested and got 9.1mg/dl.

I have found medical research online talking about it but has anyone found exercise triggers their gout?
