Uric Acid is synthesized from the nitrogen-containing compounds in the cells which are known as PURINES. This test evaluates uric acid level in the blood or urine for detecting excess uric acid in a condition called GOUT. This test suggested during prognosis for monitoring chemotherapy and kidney stones.


This test is usually done for altered levels of uric acid in the blood. If too much accumulation of uric acid remains in the blood it leads to a condition known as hyperuricemia. This condition can lead to the formation of uric acid or urate crystals in the joints causing a pathology known as Gout (a form of very painful arthritis) and also these can accumulate in kidneys to form renal stones. This test is suggested in patients with symptoms of gout such as intense pain and swelling around one or more joints (usually affects the big toes) causing lingering discomfort, signs of redness due to inflammation. Other associated tests include a kit method, colorimetric, spectrometric methods, etc.
