In brief: See details

That high level makes no sense with a serum uric acid that low.
Repeat it. The only explanation is if you ate taking a uricosuric agent such as Probenecid.

In brief: 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.

I disagree. That enormously high value makes no sense and cannot be related to diet. The top normal 24 hour urine uric acid is 600 mg.
