    Can my hyperuricemia in CKD be treated? How?


    A nephrologist's answer would be much appreciated.
    Since high urate speeds up the progressive dropping of GFR, should my high (559 umol/L) p-urate be lowered? Can it be lowered? How? Should my primary care physician refer me to a nephrologist?
    Thank you in advance for your help!
