Uric acid is formed as a breakdown product of purines. It carries the genetic information of an organism. The human body produces 1 g of uric acid per day when breaking down proteins.

It is completely excreted as a metabolic end product.

After the menopause, the normal values ​​for women are the same as for men. Uric acid levels that are too low are usually the result of medication or the congenital disease xanthinuria.

When uric acid levels are elevated, uric acid builds up in bursae, tendons, under the skin and joints, causing damage throughout the body.

Jamie Clark

Hello, I’m Jamie Clark, 32 years old, and I have been living in the USA for a few years.
Since I was a child, I have suffered from a house dust allergy, severely affecting me. I felt the effects both while exercising and while sleeping. Constant sneezing after getting up and difficult breathing were the consequences. The allergy has also developed into asthma, which is still a sporting restriction today.
