Even when you are resting, your body is constantly working, and producing energy for the proper working of all parts of the body. Typically, the food we eat is used for this energy production, and the unused or undigested parts are ‘excreted’ out of the body via urine and stool.   Uric acid is the final waste product of purine (a type of protein) metabolism; it is the function of the kidneys to filter it out. A uric acid serum test reflects the uric acid content in your blood. As a result, any deviation from the uric acid normal range can be an indication of various medical conditions like dehydration, kidney disease, heart disease, cancer, etc.

The state of increased uric acid levels in the blood is called hyperuricemia. Usually, physicians associate an increase in serum uric acid with gout. This condition involves swelling of joints such as the knee, ankle, toes, and fingers. High uric acid levels can also result from cancer chemotherapy.

A uric acid test report compares the actual levels of uric acid in your blood with the reference uric acid normal value. To ensure accurate and reliable uric acid test report, you can opt for Apollo 24|7. At Apollo 24|7, you can check for uric acid test price and find out everything related to the test. The uric acid test price offered by Apollo 24|7 is quite reasonable.

Why should you go for the serum uric acid test?

  • Diagnose or rule out the possibility of gout
  • Assess the function of the kidneys in people having hypertension and diabetes
  • Manage the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy in cancer patients
  • People having regular/high alcohol intake
  • People having heart disease
  • Check for the presence or absence of kidney stones

faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
Gout is a complex form of arthritis that can affect any person. The most common affected area is the joint at the base of the big toe. The symptoms of gout include intense pain in joints, discomfort, inflammation and redness, and limited range of motion.
The major risk factor of gout is increased levels of uric acid in the body. Other risk factors include diet which can raise the levels of uric acid such as meat, seafood, and sweetened beverages; being overweight, untreated high blood pressure, chronic conditions such as metabolic syndrome, diabetes, heart, and kidney diseases; effect of certain medications such as thiazide diuretics, having a family history of gout, and in patients who recently got surgery or trauma.
The symptoms which indicate the presence of kidney stones include pain in the lower back, side, abdomen, or groin; nausea, increased urge to urinate, discomfort and pain while urinating, presence of blood in urine, and foul-smelling urine.
The risk factors associated with high levels of uric acid include alcohol intake, medicines used to treat heart diseases, exposure to lead, pesticides; kidney disease, high blood pressure, high blood glucose levels, hypothyroidism, obesity, and extreme levels of physical activity.
Yes, please inform your doctor if you are taking any medicines or supplements as it might interfere with the test results.
High uric acid levels may not harm the body directly, but an increase in the level indicates that something is wrong with kidney function. Uric acid is not the cause of a kidney problem but a sign of the problem.
Low levels of dissolved uric acid in serum can also reflect kidney dysfunction. This rare condition is a sign of Fanconi Syndrome, in which kidney tubules are not able to reabsorb uric acid and glucose. As a result, greater levels of uric acid are excreted in the urine, and subsequently, the level of uric acid in the blood decreases.
There are quite a few conditions that an individual can consider before opting for a uric acid serum test. These include joint pain with swelling,, previous history of kidney stones, or undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. Make sure you consult your doctor before going for the test.
No fasting is necessary for the uric acid serum test. However, one should avoid consuming alcohol, painkillers, and vitamin C supplements before the test. These can interfere with the test results and reflect inaccurate numbers.
Serum uric acid levels are mainly tested using venous blood samples. However, doctors can advise urine tests to confirm the condition related to lower uric acid levels.
High uric acid levels can indicate excess alcohol intake, heart disease, diabetes, bone marrow disorders, kidney stones, or a diet rich in purine content (like red meat, seafood like sardines, shrimp and prawns, and alcohol).
Annual health checks are essential for preventive care. These checkups allow early detection of potential health issues, thus improving the prognosis. Annual checkups help assess the need for interventions or adjustments in the current treatment plan for pre-existing illnesses. This checkup can also help you save tax under section 80 D.
