Hyperuricemia, commonly known as increased uric acid levels in blood, is a result of either more uric acid production or less excretion of it from the body. Normally, an adult man should have uric acid in the range of 3.4 to 7 mg/dL while the range decreases to 2.4 mg/dL to 6 mg/dL in the case of an adult woman. Uric acid in the body increases due to purine rich diet, obesity, renal insufficiency, excessive alcohol intake, endocrine disorders, metabolic disorders like diabetes, diuretic medications, genetics and underactive thyroid. If left untreated, high uric acid can lead to gouty arthritis and more severe renal failure. Here are some simple home remedies to control uric acid naturally.
