    Paano maalis ang URIC ACID????

    Mahilig ako sa peanuts and beans, at my young age parang nakakaramdam na ako ng pananakit ng mga braso and legs. Naisip ko baka mataas na uric acid ko?

    Paano ba matanggal ang uric acid?

    musculoskeletal pain does not always mean that you are hyperurecimic (increased blood uric acid levels). i suggest that if you really want to have your uric acid checked, go to your family doctor or any doctor for that matter and ask for a laboratory request. you may include fasting blood sugar, cholesterol and kidney function test. of course this is optional already. there is a drug to decrease uric acid levels but should only be taken after your lab. result confirms that you are indeed hyperuricemic. there are herbal preparations in the market. this however is not yet approved by the BFAD and its therapeutic value has yet to be established.

    i'm only 25 years old, do you think at this age possible na mataas na nga uric acid ko?

    Yung pain naman sa legs ang arms, hindi naman ganon katindi, parang namamanhid lang yung sa both arms, yung sa paa naman pasumpong sumpong, one time kasi naglalakad ako yung sa right foot pag tinapak medyo makirot yung mga daliri pati yung talampakan. Naisip ko baka may rayuma na ako. Naisip ko rin baka effect nung matagal kong pagkakaupo. sandali lang naman naramdaman yung sa paa.

    thanks a lot bjmanabat.

    Gout does not necessarily have high levels of uric acid, and conversely, high levels of uric acid does not necessarily lead to gout. Your clinical presentation is not characteristic of gout, either. Gout only involves one joint. It's very, very painful, it has a very fast course, and the joint involved will be red and tender. You most probably are just experiencing either musculoskeletal pains, or transient decrease in blood flow in the affected area. Exercise regularly after warming up properly, and avoid staying in one position for a long time.

    at age 25 its not common to have increased uric acid levels. its not impossible though! i just remember i have a cousin who is complaining about the same symptoms as you are. she was worked up at UST and the final diagnosis was juvenile rheumatoid arhtritis. of course your case may be different so if its bothering you for quite some time now i suggest you consult an internal medicine specialist or a rheumatologist if there's one available.
