Increased uric acid in the blood inevitably causes gout. This is a chronic disease caused and characterized by the deposition of crystals of uric acid salts (urates) in various body tissues: kidneys, joints, ligaments, and skin.
Clinically, it is manifested by impaired renal function, the appearance of sand and kidney stones, recurring arthritis and the formation of gouty nodules under the skin.
Most often, men suffer. Gout and pain attacks are usually triggered by malnutrition, the presence of a large number of purine bases (fatty meats, offal, strong broths) in the diet or alcohol abuse.
A prolonged increase in uric acid in the blood serum is a big burden on the kidneys, whose function is impaired, the excretion of urates from the body is reduced. This leads to an even greater concentration of uric acid in the blood and its fixation in the joints, walls of blood vessels of the kidneys, heart and other organs. In the end, the most serious complications develop: arthritis, uric acid diathesis, urolithiasis and other pathologies.
