Maintain Uric Acid Cure Progression
Maintain Uric Acid Cure is the seventh and final phase of gout progression. Where you have had no gout symptoms for six months. While maintaining uric acid below your maximum level as agreed with your doctor.
Strictly speaking, you should also have no visible tophi. And no radiographic signs of uric acid crystal deposits. However, some tophi are very resistant to shrinking by dissolving at low uric acid levels. Because they become calcified, requiring surgery. But you and your doctor can balance any benefits of deposit removal against the risks of surgery.
So now, you can consider your gout to be cured. However, you must:
- Continue to monitor symptoms
- Arrange blood tests for uric acid at least once per year. Together with kidney function and liver function tests.
- Continue taking allopurinol. Or whichever uric acid cure has got you to this point.
