In my response, I refer to 2 studies:
- 1st report says Coumadin raise uric acid levels.
- Menon, Ram K., D. P. Mikhailidis, Joyce L. Bell, P. B. Kernoff, and P. Dandona. “Warfarin administration increases uric acid concentrations in plasma.” Clinical chemistry 32, no. 8 (1986): 1557-1559.
- 2nd report says Coumadin has no effect on uric acid levels.
- Walker, F. B., D. M. Becker, B. Kowal-Neeley, and L. S. Krongaard. “Lack of effect of warfarin on uric acid concentration.” Clinical chemistry 34, no. 5 (1988): 952-954.
