Gout

Hi
My uncle is suffering from high uric acid level and severe gout.His uric acid level is 11.7 mg/dl.He is currently on medication.He is taking two allupurinol tablets per day.But this particlar drug is causing severe allergic reactions like rash and wound formation without any cause.He has now discontinued the medication and started taking other medicine on consulting the doctor.But this medicine (colchicine)is also causing allergic reactions as above.So could you suggest me some tests which needs to be done prior to continuing medication?And are there any other medication available to lower uric acid levels?Can you please let me know the various causes leading to this disorder?

Some kidney exercise and kapalbhati  pranayam will stimulate the kidneys and help with gout problem.
Everyday, press the (kidney point) centre point of the palm of both your  hands 40 times with the thumb and press the tips of all fingers 40 times each.
To stimulate the kidney and pancreas : mandukasan(not for pregnant women) - kneel down(with feet pointing inwards,and sit on the ankles/heels, Vajrasan position), breathe in and breathe out completely and hold your breath, pull the stomach in, press both your  hands on stomach, bend forward as much as possible keeping the head straight, hold for 5 to 15 seconds and come back up while breathing in.Do this asan 3 times daily before meals, to stimulate the kidney and pancreas.Mandukasan2 - Repeat the whole process(mandukasan) 3 times,but this time with with fists of both hands pressing against the stomach(by the navel).Mandukasan can be done sitting on a chair, if you cannot bend the legs.This asan should be done before meals.
