High protein diet and Uric acid - just a shot in the dark?

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

other nutrient deficiencies that can result in low uric acid include ferritin and molybdenum.

any studies I can find that attempt to link molybdenum and ms are looking at it as a toxicity factor not deficiency.

You can ask, I just wont have them on me, sorry. But I never remember having them show up as a warning flag; even before I had the correct diagnosis of MS. I also have a long history of taking very broad range multi-vits, and they all would of had Zinc in them.

I have also tried adding zinc of recent with all your posts, and notice no change (or negative effects), even when I have tried high doses.

My drs. idea was for me to take Colchicine and Methacine and than Uloric to keep things under control. I have to admit that I was not very smart about keeping the Gout in check for myself. I will be the first to admit I was dead wrong on that one. Diet should have been better controlled. But my Gout pain came and went so much that I would forget I even had the problem for months at a time. My family dr. at the time would not let me have the Gout test since he considered it to be the `most useless test ` there is to test for Uric acid levels. My current family dr. just sent me for the test and my levels are all within the normal range apparently. But I want to get those numbers for myself since I have learned something from `JIMMYLEGS` and that is that the lab results may not always show normal ranges for MS patients.

cure, most often you won't get a red flag on a zinc result b/c the normal range is so useless. and so are most multis re zinc content. if it were anyone else reporting taking zinc and not noticing a difference, i'd ask them to get some monitoring data and find out whether the levels had gotten up to 18umol/L nicely. not to mention what else they may have measured and how the interactions looked to be working (or not). adaptive management, yay :)

no kidding lovebug!! i recall before I understood how ridiculous normal ranges are, that my first Ua test came back 194 and the 'normal' range was 140-360. looks so reassuring right? HA! meanwhile 194 is the exact ms average. as distinct from 290-300 the healthy average
