Hello doctor,

I am a 38-year-old cholesterol patient. I have suffered this problem for the last five years. Now, I checked up my uric acid report. My uric acid report is between 1 to 7 range and sometimes 8.99. I have muscle pain in the hand and legs. I feel sometimes my cholesterol medicine can increase the uric acid. I am currently on Rozat 10 mg, Evion, Vitamin E, Prolomet 25 mg. Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

A person having high cholesterol levels usually have metabolic syndrome, where they also have a high risk of developing high uric acid, diabetes, and fatty liver disease.

The main line of treatment for all the above problems is to have a healthy lifestyle and medicine to keep cholesterol and uric acid levels under control.

Mild muscle aches are side effects of cholesterol medicine.

You can discuss this issue with your physician who can adjust the dose or change the medicine which can suit you better.
