What is the Uric Acid Serum Test?

The uric acid serum test detects the amount of uric acid present in your blood or your urine. When your body normally breaks down purine, your body makes uric acid. Purines are synthesized when your cells die. Purines can also be found in many beverages or packaged food items. Most of the time, the uric acid is dissolved into your blood and then it leaves your body through urine. If the uric acid starts building up in the blood, then it will form the shape of needle-like crystals that will start to surround your joints. This condition will then turn into gout. A gout is a form of arthritis in which your joints get affected. Mainly they get inflamed and cause pain. It can also lead the situation towards kidney failure after kidney stones start to develop.
