I raised this question to my doctor and he informed me the infertility issues with Allopurinol are more for females, not males. Is this accurate? I want to make sure. Any insight would be helpful. Thanks.
Thanks. I am not a body builder. However, I do regularly exercise and do some weight training. I take a scoop of whey protein sometimes after my workout. That is all. Thoughts?
I will submit a new post for my next question. Thanks everyone for chiming in!
I got my blood drawn after lunch last week. I got the results today and it was 8.0. Keep in mind it was near 10 a few months ago. Since my attack started 2 weeks ago, I have since elminated most high purine foods and alcohol from my diet. I am at a point now where I can begin exercising as my foot has healed for the most part. I just turned in my 24 hour urine sample this morning and they drew more blood as I was fasting. I am interested in the results and will keep you all posted. I did have a few more questions……:) You all have been very helpful and I appreciate it.
1) Any insight into the 24 hour uring test would be helpful. Why is this test important? Especially in deciding the dosage of Allo. My doctor did write a 300mg prescription. He said not to get it filled until after he reads the test results. After the test results come back, I will ask for a lower dosage of 100mg as you recommended.
2) I have never had an attack last more than a few days. It has been over 2 weeks on this one. My ankle and toe has almost healed. Can this be b/c I have eliminated meats and alcohol for the past few weeks and my body is trying to dissolve the already accumulated deposits? I never used to get them in my ankle but recently I am. It was usually in the toe.
3) I asked this before and maybe crazy…..When I used to drink a few beers, I could almost immediately feel a rush into my toe. Like it was already accumulating. I told my doctor and he said he has heard this before. Anyone else had this feeling?
Thanks for the detailed reply! I found this site and it has helped me tremendously. I will definitely keep you posted on my progress. I know I could suffer long term damage if I don't dissolve the accumulation in my toes and ankles. As odd as it sounds, even after a few beers, I feel a rush of pressure into my toes. I do have self-control and will manage with diet. However, I think Allo is necessary to properly rid my body of the deposits. At which point, I will manage my number and control with a lower dose of Allo and diet. Thanks again sir!
