1) Risks : include Acute Gout , Uric Acid stone formation and kidney damage.
2) Medications : asymptomatic hyperuricemia doesnot require treatment , but to look for cause. So if u are currently taking any medicines , let us know
3) precautions: to use a low purine diet ; ( avoid fish poultry excessice amounts of meat , spinach , peas and beans). Take plenty of water.
4 )Further Tests : Urea & creatinine
And Blood CP and LDH to rule out the excessive cell breakdown increasing the burden on kidneys

Aoa thank you for your mail and the uric acid is far too high requiring more investigations after a thorough checking
Thank you for your reply sir!
I plan on having some more tests as prescribed by one of the replies above and hopefully that will determine more.

This UA level is pretty high.Needs treatment and dietary advise.A consultation with a physician is necessary as without seeing the patient recommending drug is not a good idea. More tests may be required.High UA is associated with hypertension, diabetes, and few other comlications.
