    Hi all,
    I bought uric acid meter some time ago as it was always borderline high.
    Recently, I started to measure it and notice uric acid spikes during crashes,
    Normally it sits around 7-7.5 mg/dl. It can spike to 13-15 mg/dl during a crash.
    It resettles at 7 again after.
    Have been reading quite a lot on this forum about Peroxynitrate theory from Pall and Rich Vank, http://phoenixrising.me/treating-cf...-theory-by-martin-pall-ph-d-part-i-the-theory

    Anyway..thought i would share it:)

    Lower your protein intake, check what drugs you are taking (immunovir will increase uric acid) and there are natural supplements to lower it if all this fails.

    This fits in with what I just posted ..... Ureaplasma and Staphylococcus epidermidis produces uric acid ....

    Urea should not be confused with uric acid. Elevated levels of uric acid are found in gout.
