What is Uric Acid?
Uric Acid is an insoluble compound which is a breakdown product of food that contains Nitrogen.
Most of the uric acid is filtered out by the kidneys and passes out of the body in urine.
But if too much uric acid is being produced or if the kidneys are not able to remove it from the blood normally, then the level of uric acid in the blood increases.That may lead to various body ailments.
Factors that may cause high Uric Acid level in your blood include:
1) Diuretics (water retention relievers)
2) Drinking too much alcohol
3) Immune-suppressing drugs
4) Purine-rich diet — liver, meat, sardines, dried beans and peas, mushrooms, and other foods.
5) Renal insufficiency (inability of the kidneys to filter waste).
Adverse effects of Uric Acid on body
When the excess uric acid is not removed by the kidneys, it forms crystals that end up in the joints of the feet and hands.The crystals are very sharp-edged and press on tender tissues beneath the skin causing excruciating pain, inflammation and swelling known as gouty arthritis.
2) Metabolic Acidosis
When a person eats high quantities of proteins that are not properly metabolized, the result is an over-abundance of uric acid in the blood.If excess uric acid is present and can’t be properly excreted, a condition known as metabolic acidosis.Metabolic acidosis may lead to rapid breathing, confusion and lethargy.
