Uric Acid Blood Test in Panchkula

What is a Uric Acid Test?

A uric acid test determines the quantity of uric acid present in your urine or blood sample. Uric acid is basically a waste product that is produced when our body breaks down purines. Generally, the uric acid is dissolved in the blood and reaches the kidney, from where it is excreted. When your body starts making a lot of uric acid, it can make crystals in your joints. This is a condition similar to arthritis and is known as gout. It causes painful inflammation around the joints.

Uric acid is a chemical that is produced in our body due to the breakdown of purines. Purines, that is, adenine and guanine can be produced in our body itself or are obtained from different food items and beverages like liver, mackerel, anchovies, peas, dried beans, and beer. Uric acid generally gets dissolved in the blood and is transported to the kidney. The uric acid is removed from the body through our kidneys in the form of urine. When our body is unable to remove uric acid, it gets accumulated in our body and leads to several health complications.
