Uric acid is a product that is formed by the breakdown of nucleic acids. Most uric acid is excreted by the kidneys and some is excreted by the gastrointestinal tract. The main purpose of the uric acid test is to diagnose gout, a condition in which uric acid settles in tissues and joints, particularly joints of the big toe. The uric acid test is also used to monitor the treatment of gout. Variations from Normal. Hyperuricemia, increased uric acid in the blood, is a result of excessive production of uric acid. Overproduction of uric acid is caused by excessive cell destruction and the subsequent breakdown of nucleic acids excessive cell production and destruction as seen in leukemia and inefficient excretion of uric acid, as in kidney failure. Conditions associated with hyperuricemia are lymphomas, metastatic cancer, starvation, multiple myeloma, lead poisoning, and many other chronic and systemic diseases. Decreased uric acid levels are seen in Wilson's disease, a rare inherited...
In the GREACE trial, the effect 3, 4 of atorvastatin on serum creatinine and uric acid in patients with CHD was rapid and it was reversed equally rapidly if patients happened to discontinue atorvastatin. The fall in creati-nine was greater in both those with higher baseline serum levels of this indicator of the glomerular filtration rate and at the higher doses of atorvastatin. Simvastatin can also significantly reduce serum creatinine and serum uric acid (p 0.0001) in patients with PAD treated for 3-4 months 38 . The difference in the creatinine levels was more pronounced in the tertile of patients with the highest baseline creatinine levels.
Labs Serum glucose elevated (157 mg dL) LDL lowered considerably in comparison to last visit triglycerides decreased, but not as markedly HDL increased AST and ALT mildly elevated elevated uric acid normal levels of 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (vs. carcinoid syndrome, which may also produce facial Hushing)
The effects of neem on the immune system are complex and have not been fully elucidated some evidence points to an immunostimulant effect, while other evidence suggests it can also act as an anti-inflammatory. The latter may be partly explained by inhibition of prostaglandin synthetase (Van der Nat et al., 1991 Okpanyi and Ezeukwu, 1981 Obaseki et al., 1985). However, Kroes et al. (1993) showed that in a classical Ayurvedic preparation for gout, nimba arishta, the anti-inflammatory activity is almost entirely attributable to ingredients other than neem.
It is proposed that most individuals with type 2 diabetes have had a less severe abnormality of carbohydrate metabolism before progressing to diabetes.90 The transition from normal glucose tolerance to type 2 diabetes in genetically susceptible persons involves manifestations described as insulin resistance, a condition in which body cells lose sensitivity to insulin action, and insulin-stimulated glucose disposal is compromised. Insulin resistance is associated with a metabolic syndrome characterized by a cluster of atherogenic risk factors including hyperinsulinemia, obesity with an abdominal pattern of distribution, some degree of carbohydrate intolerance, hypertension, and an abnormal blood lipoprotein profile of increased triglycerides and decreased HDL cholesterol. Other features of the syndrome include easily oxidized small LDL particles, heightened blood-clotting activity (plasminogen-activating inhibitor-1), and elevated serum uric acid concentration.
Discussion Tumor lysis syndrome is most often seen in patients with lymphoma or leukemia but is also seen in patients with a variety of solid tumors. The presence of a large tumor burden, a high growth fraction, an increased pretreatment LDH level and uric acid level, or preexisting renal insufficiency increases the likelihood that a patient will develop turner lysis syndrome. Increased levels of uric acid, xanthine, and phosphate may result in precipitation of these substances in the kidney. Renal sludging and acute renal insufficiency or failure further aggravate the metabolic abnormality.
Extract is reported to have an insulin-potentiating effect (Shani et al., 1972) Betavulgarosides II and IV and oleanane triterpenoid saponins have hypoglycemic activity (Murakami et al., 1999) Extracts reduce serum lipids, sialic, and uric acid, glucose, and lipid peroxidation in rats. The extracts protect the liver (Ozsoy-Sacan et al., 2004) Used to treat diabetes (Neame and Pillay, 1964)
ID CC A 52-year-old obese white male comes to his family doctor complaining of severe pain in the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint (PODAGRA) that began at night after an episode of binge eating and drinking. H PI He admits to being an avid meat eater and drinks red wine every night. His history is significant for removal of kidney stones (uric acid stones). Labs Elevated serum uric acid. UA urate crystals. Increased ESR. Micro Pathology Tophi and synovial fluid aspiration show characteristic negatively birefringent, needle-shaped crystals of uric acid salts giant cell formation with neutrophilic infiltration. Discussion Gout is a disorder of purine metabolism with a resulting increase in serum uric acid level and deposits in several tissues 10 to 20 of cases may develop nephrolithiasis. In late stages, urate deposits in the kidney may lead to chronic pyelonephritis, arteriolar sclerosis, hypertension, and renal failure. Rheumatology Gout ESI
Azotemia, increased BUN levels, is usually caused by inadequate excretion due to kidney diseases such as glomerulonephritis, pyelonephritis, and acute tubular necrosis. Other causes of azotemia are urinary obstruction, excessive amounts of protein intake and metabolism, dehydration, myocardial infarction, and chronic gout. Decreased BUN levels are seen in liver failure, overhydration via excessive intravenous fluids, malnutrition, impaired absorption, and pregnancy.
In most patients with gout as well as those with Lesch-Nyhan syndrome, purines are overproduced and overexcreted. Yet the hypoxanthine analogue allopurinol, which effectively treats gout, has no effect on the severe neurological symptoms of Lesch-Nyhan patients because it does not b. Gout d. It is oxidized to form uric acid
Discussion Renal tract stones may produce one of the most severe forms of pain known due to obstruction and smooth muscle contraction. Calculi may be formed of calcium oxalate, magnesium ammonium phosphate, cystine, or uric acid. Approximately 85 of renal calculi are radiopaque calcium oxalate stones. Uric acid stones are radiolucent.
Certain metabolic factors may predispose the formation of calculi. Included are hyperparathyroidism, renal tubular acidosis, elevated uric acid (usually with gout), defective metabolism of oxalate, genetic defect in the metabolism of cystine, and excessive intake of vitamin D or dietary calcium. Excessive intake of milk and cheese products can result in too much dietary calcium.
Anthocyanin pigments, the water-soluble, reddish pigments found in fruits such as strawberries, cherries, cranberries, raspberries, blueberries, grapes, and black currants, are reported to be antioxidants and are very effective in scavenging free radicals, inhibiting LDL cholesterol oxidation and platelet aggregation, and protecting against cardiovascular disease.54-56 A variety of anthocyanins and flavonoids have been identified in tart cherries, which possess very strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. These compounds could account for antiallergenic, antiviral, anticancer, and cardio-protective activities.57 It has been suggested that the composition of tart cherries may protect against various chronic diseases and reduce arthritic- and gout-related pain.57
Labs CBC hemolytic anemia (due to oxidative RBC damage by copper). AST and ALT elevated as well as alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin, both direct and indirect decrease in serum ceruloplasmin (copper-transporting protein) increased urinary copper (hypercupriuria) increased urinary uric acid (hyperuricosuria).
Other biochemical defects affect different organs, especially the brain, heart and liver. There may be hepatomegaly, hypoglycaemia, hyperlipidaemia, hyperuricaemia, lactic acidosis, impaired growth, cyclical neutropenia and bacterial infection. If dietary compliance is poor, chronic renal disease, inflammatory bowel disease, hepatic adenoma, amyloid, gout or osteoporosis may result.
The formation and excretion of urine by the kidneys is an essential body function. The kidneys excrete about 1500 milliliters of urine per day. Urine is about 95 water and 5 other constituents such as urea, electrolytes, amino acids, uric acid, creatinine, carbohydrates, bile pigments, and peptides. All substances found in the urine are also contained in the blood, but at different concentrations.

Studies for staging pediatric non-Hodgkin disease include serum for a complete blood count, serum electrolytes, uric acid, lactate dehydrogenase, creatinine, calcium, and phosphorous. . j Patients should have a chest radiograph. If this is abnormal, the next step should be to obtain
The kidney reacts to the various inflammatory conditions with similar sonographic changes. It can be entirely normal in early pyelonephritis or glomerulonephritis. Later, edema causes an enlargement and interstitial infiltration an increased parenchymal echogenicity with accentuated demarcation of the parenchyma (29) relative to the hypoechoic pyramids (30) (Fig. 39.3). This is referred to as punched-out medullary pyramids ' In comparison with the adjacent hepatic or splenic parenchyma (9), the renal parenchyma appears more echogenic (Fig. 39.3) than the parenchyma of the normal kidney (Fig. 38.2). Interstitial nephritis can be caused by chronic glomerulonephritis, diabetic nephropathy, urate nephropathy (hyperuricemia as manifestation of gout or increased nucleic acid turnover), amyloidosis or autoimmune disease, but the etiology cannot be deduced from the increased parenchymal echogenicity.
In the acute setting, patients with urinary stones typically present with very severe pain and cannot find a comfortable position in which to rest stones predispose to infection and can lead to destruction of renal parenchyma. The most common types are calcium oxalate and phosphate stones less common are magnesium ammonium phosphate, uric acid, and cystine stones. Approximately 85 of all renal stones are radiopaque uric acid stones are radiolucent. p.250
The metabolic processes of the body result in the production and elimination of a variety of waste products known as metabolic end products. Frequently performed metabolic end product tests include bilirubin, a waste product of hemolysis blood urea nitrogen (BUN), a test that measures plasma urea, the nitrogenous waste product of protein metabolism creatinine, the waste product formed in the muscles and uric acid, a waste product derived from the breakdown of nucleic acids. Analyzing plasma bilirubin and blood urea nitrogen levels provides the clinician with valuable information about liver function. Blood urea nitrogen, creatinine, and uric Uric acid Diagnostic for gout
Labs Decreased serum sodium (hyponatremia) decreased serum osmolality ( 280 mOsm kg) normal or low BUN and serum creatinine no proteinuria (no renal disease) adrenal and thyroid function tests normal. UA urine osmolality markedly increased (versus psychogenic polydipsia where osmolality is decreased) hypernatriuria (urinary Na 20 mEq L). Diminished blood uric acid level (hypouricemia).
Among all of the lipid-lowering agents, nicotinic acid can favorably modify all of the lipoprotein abnormalities associated with atherogenic dyslipidemia according to the National Cholesterol Education Program III report. The problem with niacin has been its side-effect profile (flushing, hepatotoxicity, hyperglycemia, and gout), reduced potency for LDL reduction and reduced outcomes data compared with the statins (26).
