Gout meds to lower uric acid and chronic kidney disease

Posted by kitmus @kitmus, Mar 8, 2021

I am Stage 4 CKD and have had a few episodes of gout. Is anyone on this forum who is in late stage taking or has taken meds to help with lowering uric acid? Thank you for any responses, positive and negative.

@charlie5454s You might want to ask your transplant center if they are aware of this dilemma you face. Perhaps they are not. Perhaps something changed and you never got any notice. It has happened before!

Have you spoken to your GP and get his input for working with you on the Allopurinol? I have been on it for over 10 years due to gout issues, also. But, I still watch my diet carefully. It has been years since anyone checked my uric acid level, so I had to insist on a face-to-face with my GP this December to get certain testing done!
