The present study conducted in Toba Tek Singh district to assess a prevalence for increased uric acid level. For this study, 300 samples were taken among healthy individuals. The samples examined in a laboratory to determine a serum uric acid concentrations in all the selected samples. All the 300 samples were subjected to determine a mean uric acid value. This data was compared within selected samples age-wise and gender-wise. The reference value in male and female was 3.5-7.0 mg/dL and 2.5-6.0 mg/dL respectively. The results determined that uric acid value was high in a group of 10-30 years of age. In this group, a mean uric acid value is 5.17±1.02mg/dL. In a group of 31-50 years of age, the average uric acid value found 5.14±0.91 mg/dL that is lower than a group of 10-30 years of age. The mean serum uric acid value of a group of 51-70 years of age is 5.4±1.34 mg/dL, while 5.47±1.27 mg/dL is a mean serum uric acid value of an age group of 71-90 years. All groups study showed that serum uric acid level is increased by increasing age of males while in the case of female it is increased after 50 years of age. It is due to the hormonal effect as the level of estrogen in the female is high. The increased level of Uric acid leads to gouty arthritis, cardiovascular disease in females, cancer mortality in male, kidney diseases and diabetes millets.
