Can High Uric Acid Cause Kidney Disease

2014-02-27 07:39

Uric acid is the byproduct of purine and it is normally eliminated from body by kidneys. However, if metabolic disorder occurs, high level of uric acid will build up in body, thus resulting in a myriad of problems. Can high uric acid cause kidney disease?

High uric acid and kidney disease

In some cases, if high uric acid accumulates in body, it may cause kidney disease. As the uric acid can not be eliminated from body, it may deposit in many parts of the body mainly joints. In some cases, the uric acid even can deposit in kidneys. When uric acids deposit in kidneys, an inflammation will be initiated to clear off the deposits. The inflammation may worsen renal function, leading to kidney disease.

Additionally, high levels of uric acid may form very large stones. The stones can affect the flow of urine. This also can contribute to kidney impairment.

As kidney disease can result from high uric acid level, it is important for the patients to take preventive measures in advance.

How to prevent kidney disease if uric acid level is high?

Firstly, it is to cut down the source of uric acid in body. The patient should reduce the intake of foods high in uric acid like seafood, dairy products, nuts and so forth. Follow a healthy diet that contains mostly vegetables and fruits. Limit alcohol, meat, and fish. If you have no kidney impairment, you should drink at least 64 ounces of water a day to help reduce the risk for stone formation.

Secondly, you should follow the medication regime prescribed by your doctor. If inflammation occurs, anti-inflammation medicines may be recommended.

If the patients with high uric acid have developed kidney disease, it is important to seek for a treatment immediately. Otherwise, the kidney damage will become irreversible. If you want to learn the treatment for high uric acid induced kidney disease, you can leave a message below.
