Blood test showed high uric acid why?
I just had a blood test and 2 results were hig Bicarbonate 32 and Urate 0.51. I do not drink alchol so why such high readings. I'm fit and cycle 5 time a week 1.5 to 2hrs a day and do gym.

Pls help.

Is it diet or what?

Tim, it is probably due to your diet. If you’re interested in something I wrote on gout a while ago you’re welcome to e-mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za. Good luck.
