Purine Metabolism and Uric Acid Testing


Definition

Uric acid causes are tests that are done to measure the levels of uric acid in blood serum or in urine.

Purpose



The Uric Acid Tests are Used to Evaluate the Blood Levels

Of uric acid diet for gout sufferers to assess uric acid levels in the urine for kidney stone formation. The urine test is used most often to monitor patients already diagnosed with kidney stones, but it can also be used to detect disorders that affect the body's production of uric acid and to help measure the level of kidney functioning.


Normal results

Blood test

Reference values for blood uric acid vary from laboratory to laboratory but are generally found within the following range: Male: 2.1-8.5 mg/dL; female: 2.0-6.6 mg/dL. Values may be slightly higher in the elderly. We had at first written a rough assignment on Uric Acid Blood Levels. Then after a few improvisions and enhancements here and there, we have ended up with this end product.

Increased production of uric acid may result from eating foods that are high in purine. Increased uric acid levels due to overproduction may also be caused by gout, by a genetic disorder of purine metabolism, or by metastatic cancer, destruction of red blood cells, leukemia, or cancer chemotherapy. Opportunity knocks once. So when we got the opportunity to write on Gout Uric, we did not let the opportunity slip from our hands, and got down to writing on Gout Uric.


Urine test

Reference values for 24-hour urinary uric acid vary from laboratory to laboratory but are generally found within the following range: 250-750 mg/24 hours. Writing something about Kidney Stone Formation seemed to be something illogical in the beginning. However, with the progress of matter, it seemed logical. Matter just started pouring in, to give you this finished product.



  • Decreased excretion of uric acid is seen in chronic kidney disease, low thyroid, toxemia of pregnancy, and alcoholism.
  • Patients with gout excrete less than half the uric acid in their blood as other persons.
  • Only 10-15% of the total cases of hyperuricemia, however, are caused by gout.
