Are serum uric acid levels always elevated in acute gout?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Many patients with acute gout (11%-49%) have normal serum uric acid (SUA) levels (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, prospective cohort studies). Patients taking allopurinol are significantly more likely to have normal uric acid levels during acute gout attacks (SOR: B, extrapolated from prospective cohorts).
