A client's serum uric acid level is 7.4 mg/dL. Although the client is asymptomatic, the provider prescribes pharmacologic treatment. The client says, "I don't understand why I have to take medicine if I don't have symptoms." Which nursing response is indicated?

▸ "People with high uric acid levels generally develop gout."

▸ "Your uric acid level is very high, which puts you at high risk for gout."

▸ "Because your father and brother had gout, you are at risk."

▸ "I'm not certain, as your only strong family history is of kidney stones."
