Uric acid is a natural waste product from the digestion of foods that contain purines. Purines are found in high levels in some foods such as certain meats, sardines, dried beans, and beer.
Excess levels of uric acid occur when your body either makes too much uric acid or is unable to excrete enough of it. High uric acid levels in your blood can lead to the formation of crystals. Although these can form anywhere in the body, they tend to form in and around your joints and in your kidneys. Your body’s defensive white blood cells may attack the crystals.
There are some lifestyle factors that can cause uric acid to collect in your body such as diet, stress and obesity.
