Cuándo consultar al doctor

Escrito por el personal de Mayo Clinic

Tener nivel de ácido úrico elevado no es una enfermedad ni un trastorno que, necesariamente, deba tratarse o investigarse si no hay otros síntomas. Pero si tienes una crisis de gota o cierto tipo de cálculo renal, es posible que el médico pida análisis para ver si el nivel de ácido úrico es elevado.

Si te preocupa que alguno de los medicamentos pueda ser la causa del ácido úrico elevado, habla con el médico. Mientras tanto, sigue tomando tus medicamentos hasta que el médico te indique lo contrario.
