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.

The uric acid test in Panchkula can be done on blood or urine samples. When blood is used for testing, it is also known as the serum uric acid test. For the blood test, blood is collected from a vein in your arm through a small needle. The blood is collected in a small vial and sent to the laboratory for testing. For the uric acid urine test, all the urine that passes in a 24 hour period is collected for testing. You’ll be given a container wherein you have to collect all the urine for 24 hours from the next day leaving the first urine that passes early in the morning. You will be required to store the container in a cooler with ice or in a refrigerator. After you have collected the sample for 24 hours, the sample will be tested in the laboratory.
The results of the uric acid test can be interpreted differently depending upon what sample is used for the test.
