Elevated uric acid and calcium but not dehydrated

Our 9 month old bearded dragon was brought to the vet due to not wanting to bask, laziness, and preferring to sit with her mouth ajar. She is still eating and pooping. Bloodwork showed elevated uric acid and calcium. She does not have swollen joints or any symptoms of gout other than the bloodwork. The vet suggested xrays to check for follicles, but I'm more concerned about kidney issues. We changed up her basking spot so it is cooler and she is basking more now. Just trying to figure out what this could be. Thanks!

Not sure but there are some on here who could help -- what kind of UVB are you using? a coil or a tube?

Ok good make sure there is a piece of basking decor directly under it 12-15 inches for best effect of the rays
Yes, she has a piece of slate elevated by bricks. As per the vet, it doesnt appear to be a husbandry issue. All temps and setup are correct.
