Uric Acid

Uric acid is a waste substance formed out of chemical compounds named purines that naturally form inside the body. Purines can mostly be found in food substance such as anchovies, dried beans, beer, and wine. Kidneys filter uric acid from urine and infuse them as crystals in the bodily tissues. An excessive amount of uric acid-infused causes Gout. Gout is a form of arthritis that causes joint pain, especially in fingers, toes, wrists, and ankles. Uric acid is also increased inside the body due to cancer treatments. Alternatively, too little uric acid in the blood is a symptom of liver or kidney disease.

Why take the test?

Uric acid is requested when a doctor suspects high levels of uric acid in blood.

  • While undergoing cancer treatments like chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
  • If you suffer from frequent kidney stones.

Additional Information

A uric acid blood test can help to diagnose gout and monitor treatment for this condition. It can also help to identify people who are at risk for developing gout. A high level of uric acid in the blood can lead to gout, a type of arthritis. A uric acid blood test may also be used to monitor people who are taking medications to treat gout.


A uric acid blood test is performed by drawing a sample of blood from a vein in your arm. The sample will be sent to a lab for analysis. There are no risks associated with a uric acid blood test.

Statistics on Uric Acid

High uric acid levels are the result multiple myeloma, metastatic cancer, leukaemia and a diet high in purines.
Generally, your uric acid level is high when:

  • For females, the result is over 6 mg/dL
  • For males, the result is over 7 mg/dL

Low urine uric acid levels may be seen with kidney disease and chronic alcohol use.

UK Gout rate rises by 30%

Skin rashes are rare but highly troublesome that approximately 5% of gout patients experience, causing a serious problem. We recommend people with poorly functioning kidneys consult their GP if skin rash develops.

Helping me to check Uric acid kevels

Overall, delivery of the kit and subsequent posting of the sample were problem-free. The instructions and the kit, itself, were easy to follow and use. The advice to do the test between Monday-Friday was quite sensible.
The only quibble I have is the same for most do-at-home kits: the amount of blood needed to provide an adequate sample. Even with pre-warming the hand and squeezing the finger, it took some time to fill the bottle up to the 600 mark. Currently waiting for notification of the result (sample taken 9.10.23)
