Uric Acid and Cardiovascular Diseases – No Association

german translation / full article

Although there is no strong evidence for causal associations between uric acid and ischaemic heart disease or blood pressure, evidence supports a causal effect between body mass index and uric acid level and hyperuricaemia. This finding strongly suggests body mass index as a confounder in observational associations, and suggests a role for elevated body mass index or obesity in the development of uric acid related conditions.
