My last blood test showed I had an elevated uric acid level but don’t seem to have classic symptoms of gout. Other reasons for elevated level? I had a liver transplant in 2012 and take Tacrolimus. Kidney function not the greatest !

Hi @sjhoegh and welcome to Connect. Here is an article from Mayo Clinic describing possible causes of high uric acid levels.
High uric acid level: Causes https://www.mayoclinic.org/symptoms/high-uric-acid-level/basics/causes/sym-20050607

Given that you are a liver transplant recipient, you should report these levels to your transplant team.

I'd also like to invite you to follow the Transplants support group here: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/transplants/
You'll find many relevant discussions and so many supportive, informative fellow transplants recipients and donors to connect with.
