I did get my UA back:
Name 12/8/16
Standard range
URIC 8.8
2.0 – 8.0 mg/dL

I talked with my Dr. today and had a prescription of for allopurinol 200 mg. I chose to take a different blood pressure medication – instead ofamiloride hydrochlorothiazide 5/50. She said we will have the blood test again in two weeks, including the CBC and WBC, for liver and kidney functions.

I only took the predinsone 20mg x 2 a day, for three days and found out that umm… no – need to take the dose for the whole 10 days as a recurrence is very high.

To night I rarely ever have a drink, eat red meat once in a while. I am 59, overweight and have been loosing weight slowly over the last 6 months. During the weight loss I eat about 3 to 5 mandarin oranges and 1/2 lb of apples a day.

Feedback please,
