Hyperuricemia: Increased amount of uric acid in blood

Posted on

Hyperuricemia is generally the abnormal increase in uric acid content in the blood. It can be caused due to genetics, hypothyroidism, hypertension, excess alcohol consumption or increased production of uric acid, decreased excretion of uric acid. Uric acid generally get excreted from our body through urine which regulates the normal level in our body. The amount of urate in the body depends on the balance between the amount of purines eaten in food, the amount of urate synthesised within the body and the amount of urate that is excreted in urine or through the gastrointestinal tract. In humans, the upper end of the normal range is 360 µmol/L (6 mg/dL) for women and 400 µmol/L (6.8 mg/dL) for men.
