Sorry, Cindy, I’m not a doctor, and I have no idea why blood glucose results of 6.39 would indicate against using allopurinol.

As a layman who understands gout, I would have thought allopurinol would be of value. Your husband needs to get more information about why the doctor won’t prescribe. It’s very important not to ignore excess uric acid.

If you can get more information, I can help better. All the research I have read shows allopurinol to be beneficial to diabetics. But, I know very little about diabetes, and I don’t have enough information to convince me that this is a problem that your husband suffers.
