Uric Acid

Uric acid is a waste product formed from the natural breakdown of purines, which are substances found in various foods and also produced by the body. Normally, uric acid dissolves in the blood and gets excreted from the body through urine. However, when there's excessive production of uric acid or if the kidneys can't eliminate enough of it, it can build up in the body, leading to health issues like gout, kidney stones, or certain types of kidney disease.

Uric Acid Symptoms

High levels of uric acid in the body, known as hyperuricemia, might not necessarily cause symptoms in everyone. However, when symptoms do occur, they often manifest as:

  1. Gout Attacks: Sudden, intense pain, swelling, and redness in joints, often the big toe.
  2. Joint Pain: Pain in joints, especially if it's recurrent or severe.
  3. Kidney Stones: Sharp pain in the back or side, blood in urine, discomfort during urination.

Uric Acid Normal Range

The normal range of uric acid levels in the blood can vary slightly depending on the laboratory and measurement units used. However, generally, the normal range for uric acid levels in adults is:

  • For men: 3.4 to 7.0 mg/dL
  • For women: 2.4 to 6.0 mg/dL

Uric Acid Test

The uric acid test measures the amount of uric acid in your blood. It's usually done to diagnose conditions like gout, kidney stones, or kidney disease, or to monitor these conditions. During the test, a blood sample is taken, often from a vein in your arm, and then analyzed in a lab.
