I had a telephone consultation with my GP yesterday following my haematology visit in July which has shown up high levels of uric acid. The figure I was given was 444 with the normal figure being around 140. Slightly confused as when I have Dr Googled numbers they seem to be described in the 10s not the 100s.
GP wants me to start on Alluprinol however I am not sure I want to take medication which I understand has many side effects.
Would welcome any advice re this and also on the link between uric acid and CLL. Worried as Dr Google seems to suggest that obesity is one of the biggest causes!
