Signs of High Uric Acid Levels

Uric acid is best described as the pesky compound that surrounds the joints causing the painful medical condition known as gout. Usually, the waste product known as uric acid is absorbed into the bloodstream and then filtered out of the body by the kidneys. However, when the body is unable to release uric acid, it forms crystals that deposit on the joints, thus causing pain and inflammation.

The inflammation makes it difficult for the proper functioning of the joints, which, in turn, can impair activities of daily living or ADLs.
