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, an increase in the uric acid content of the body 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.
