Understanding Uric Acid in Pune


What is Uric Acid in Pune?

An Uric Acid test measures uric acid levels in your blood and is available at an affordable price in Pune with Tata 1mg labs. Uric acid is a nitrogenous waste product that forms when the body breaks down purines, substances found naturally in the body, and certain foods. Uric acid levels are a key factor in the development of gout. An Uric Acid test aids in diagnosing gout and monitoring uric acid levels to prevent and manage gout attacks. Furthermore, uric acid is primarily excreted by the kidneys. Hence, an Uric Acid test is often used to evaluate kidney disorders, as abnormal uric acid levels may indicate impaired kidney function.

A high uric acid concentration in the blood, known as hyperuricemia, is associated with gout, kidney disease, and certain cancers. Your doctor may recommend this test if you experience symptoms such as joint pain, swelling, and redness, which are characteristic of gout. Furthermore, this test is also valuable if you experience symptoms such as severe lower back pain, nausea, and vomiting, which are characteristics of kidney stones. 

Usually, no special preparation is required for this test. You may eat and drink normally as per your daily routine.

What does Uric Acid measure?

An Uric Acid test determines the level of uric acid in your body. Uric acid is a nitrogenous compound produced by the metabolic breakdown of purine. Purines are present as nitrogenous bases in the DNA and are also found in food like red meat and seafood.

Most uric acid dissolves in the blood and goes into your kidneys. From there, it passes through your body via the urine. Decreased elimination of uric acid is often a result of impaired kidney function due to kidney disease. In many cases, the exact cause of excess uric acid is unknown. Doctors seldom need to test for low levels of uric acid.
