Diseases Caused by High Uric Acid Level
High Uric Acid Level affects badly on our body as it results in serious illness. Uric acid passes and gets filtered through the kidney. Kidneys are unable to filter excessive uric acid and thus it gets deposited in the blood. Later it gets deposited in between the bones and this causes the problem of gout. Excess of uric acid can lead to many diseases like joint pain, swelling in the body, kidney disease and obesity. With increased uric acid, the risk of fatal diseases like blood pressure, thyroid and diabetes are also high.
Prevention from this disease:
Skip spinach, green leafy vegetables, red meat and peeled pulses from the diet.
Keep the body hydrated. Drink more and more water.
If you consume alcohol or beer, then stop it.
Get a test done to know the level of uric acid. Seek medical attention if uric acid is more than 3.5 to 7.2 mg per deciliter.
