Hyperuricemia is the medical term for having high uric acid or urate levels in the blood. When uric acid levels suddenly rise above an individual’s threshold, it can lead to the formation of urate crystals in the joints. The result causes severe inflammation and pain, the symptoms of a gout attack.

Hyperuricemia has also been found to be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure.
