Definition of uric acid

Uric acid is an acid derived from the degradation of certain elements in the body. The accumulation of uric acid in the tissues can cause gout disease.

Uric acid is stored by the body for two main reasons:

  • When uric acid is overproduced by the body, due to a "poor diet"
  • When you do not drink enough and that the removal of uric acid in urine is not sufficient

Consequences of an increase in uric acid

Food in itself does not contain purines but uric acid. Uric acid is actually a substance produced naturally by our body during the breakdown of purines.

Uric acid can not be recycled by the body and be excreted in the urine. Some foods are particularly rich in purines and entail an increase of uric acid in the blood.

An increase in uric acid is called hyperuricaemia.

What are the symptoms of high level uric acid?

Another contradictory list to avoid Purines. Please,for your own sake. Do more reading on this subject before you actually start eliminating certain foods pertaining to the list above. Red Meat, Shellfish, and Alcohol are the three bad guys for the gout. There is NO scientific proof of uric acid related Gout disease caused from Eating Plant(vegetable ) purines.
