Abstract

We studied serum uric acid in 120 patients of essential hypertension visiting Department of Internal Medicine of Seoul Red Cross Hospital from October 1985 to November 1986 and analyzed its values in terms of various clinical and laboratory parameters. The results wereas follows; 1) The mean concentration of serum uric acid and incidence of hyperuricemia were 6.5+/-1.86mg%, 50.8% in hypertension group and those of normal control were 3.75+/-1.27mg%, 13.3%, respectively with significant high values in hypertension group. 2) The mean concentration of serum uric acid and the incidence of hyperuricemia were significantly correlated with the levels of diastolic blood pressure but there was only correlation between the incidence of hyperuricemia and the level of systolic pressure. 3) The mean concentration of serum uric acid and the incidence of hyperuricemia were significantly correlated with the level of BUN and serum creatinine, especially more in serum creatinine. 4) The mean concentration of serum uric acid and the incidence of hyperuricemia were not correlated with each level of serum cholesterol and triglyceride. 5) There was significant correlation between mean concentration of serum uric acid and abnormal urine finding but not in incidence of hyperuricemea.
