1260mg of Uric acid in urine, levels on blood 4.5 what could cause these high urine reading. Total volume was 2600ml urine.

Diet. Stop worrying.: The amount of uric acid that you put out daily is the result of how much DNA and RNA you metabolize. Unless you have considerable ongoing abnormal cell turnover (usually extra cell turnover in your marrow due to illness which will usually be obvious), this is mostly the result of your food preferences. A trip to the steak house can produce this lab result, and the health concern is zero. ...Read more

Not really: Making 6 liters of urine means you drank a whole lot, likely too much. That said, it should effect your uric acid excretion too much. I would repeat the test with a more normal 2-3 liter oral intake of fluids. You should also have your blood uric acid level checked, and you urine ph with a dipstick. ...Read more

It would be prudent to discuss the issue with your doctor who ordered the tests. ...Read more
