Uric Acid Lab Testing Services
Whether a doctor has suggested that you get a uric acid test done, or you simply want to know more about your own
health, we're here to help. This test is available at our labs in Baton
Rouge and surrounding areas.
Why The Test is
When your body breaks down substances called purines, uric acid
is created. Purines can be found in certain foods such as liver,
mackerel, dried beans, anchovies, and peas. High-purine drinks
include beer and wine.
If your body produces too much uric acid, not all of it is
passed out of your kidneys through your urine. When your body
has too much uric acid, illness may result. One common result of
too much uric acid is a painful joint condition known as gout.
It may also cause crystals or kidney stones that can cause
damage to your kidneys.
