High uric acid levels, a condition known as hyperuricemia, may not cause any symptoms for some people. However, for others, it can lead to a range of health issues, including gout, kidney stones, and other related complications. Here are some of the common symptoms associated with high uric acid levels:

  1. Joint pain: One of the most common symptoms of high uric acid levels is joint pain, particularly in the feet, toes, ankles, and knees. This is because excess uric acid can crystallize in the joints, leading to inflammation and pain.

  2. Swelling and redness: Along with joint pain, high uric acid levels can cause swelling, redness, and warmth around the affected joint.

  3. Gout: Gout is a type of arthritis that occurs when uric acid crystals build up in the joints, leading to sudden and severe pain, redness, and swelling.

  4. Kidney stones: High uric acid levels can also lead to the formation of kidney stones, which can cause severe pain in the lower back, sides, and abdomen.

  5. Fatigue: High uric acid levels can cause fatigue and a general feeling of unwellness, particularly if the condition is left untreated.

  6. High blood pressure: There is some evidence to suggest that high uric acid levels may be linked to high blood pressure, although the exact nature of this relationship is not yet fully understood.

If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional who can diagnose and treat the underlying cause of your symptoms.

What should I do if uric acid level is high?

  1. Make dietary changes: You should avoid high-purine foods such as red meat, seafood, and organ meats. You should also limit your intake of alcohol and sugary drinks.

  2. Increase water intake: Drinking plenty of water helps to flush out excess uric acid from your body.

  3. Lose weight: If you are overweight, losing weight can help to lower your uric acid levels.

  4. Take medication: Your doctor may prescribe medications such as allopurinol or probenecid to help lower your uric acid levels.

  5. Manage other health conditions: High uric acid levels are often associated with other health conditions such as hypertension and diabetes. It is important to manage these conditions to prevent complications.
