Thanks for all of the advice Chaps.
I have tried the 'Chinese Herbal Route', which was effective - however very intense in terms of stomach upset.
Visiting the Doctor for a General Checkup and Bloodwork this week. I am on approximately one third the dosage my Father has been prescribed in Oz' of Allopurinol.
Obviously linked to diet and mine has radically changed over the last year - with me all but giving up Booze now.
