Transplanted kidney and gout

Postby sporti » Sat May 13, 2017 12:27 pm

Hi

Can you believe it on my second anniversary of my transplant (thank you thank you) I get an attack of gout which I still have. Haven't had an attack in ten years. Do I need to report it right now or wait till appointment in June.
Thanks

I'm in USA. So if I have to do anything now have to go to emergency. Why do these things happen at weekend!

I went to hospital Wagolynn. My kidney results are very good and Uric acid is normal. They don't know why have it except they're wondering whether it's anything to with chiropractor treatment I'm having which releases toxins.

That's good news sporti, testing the theory should be simple.

Best wishes.

That's great your result is showing better. But still, you feel small changes and slight pain in that area so you should report it on an immediate basis. Best of luck your future.

Cheers,
