Uric Acid Levels: Safe or Dangerous?

In the Uric Acid Levels section, I explain the numbers you need to know about your blood test results. Because understanding uric acid is key to managing gout. Yet most people, including most doctors, do not understand uric acid levels. So learn these facts then you can take control of your gout.

Uric Acid Levels Introduction

When uric acid levels rise too high, crystals form and you get gout. So uric acid levels form a vital part in gout diagnosis. Eventually, you get treatment and uric acid levels form a vital part of monitoring that treatment and making it successful. So to understand and control gout you have to track your blood test results and keep uric acid levels safe.

It should be simple.

When uric acid levels are above 6mg/dL you are at risk of gout. Then as your uric acid levels move higher, your risk of gout, and it’s severity, both increase.
When uric acid levels are below 5mg/dL you are free from the risk of gout getting worse. However, you will need time to recover. But as your uric acid levels move lower, complete gout recovery gets nearer.

Unfortunately, this simple situation gets complicated in the real world. So I have developed charts, tables, and other explanations to help you understand uric acid levels.
