Excellent article!
The uric acid level is one of the highly tested yet underutilized tests. Many physicians order the test according to routine physical exams, yet when it comes to advice, the red flag of “red meat” goes up.
I have seen people who present with gout flare-ups and high uric acid but hardly consume red meat or drink alcohol. Sometimes, we overlook the impact of Statins on uric acid. Many people who suffer from hyperuricemia also suffer from high cholesterol and are indeed on some form of statin therapy. Statins are known for being toxic to muscles, thus contributing to high levels of uric acid in the blood, a vicious circle of cardiovascular disease, and hyperuricemia.
