What Is a Blood Uric Acid Test?
When there is an excess of uric acid in the blood, it may lead to kidney stones or gout. Additionally, studies indicate that greater uric acid levels may raise the risk of diabetes and heart disease.
A blood or urine test can be used to determine your uric acid levels. These, however, are typically a component of a diagnostic workup and not the standard blood work carried out at an annual physical.
Unless you have symptoms of an illness that is or may be caused by hyperuricemia, you probably don't need routine testing.
A uric acid test gives a doctor the ability to evaluate how well the body produces and excretes uric acid. A doctor is more likely to ask for a 24-hour urine sample if a patient exhibits kidney stone symptoms or if they believe they may have gout, which could cause kidney stones to form.
