Aim. Characteristics of interrelations of arterial hypertension, uric acid metabolism parameters and severity of gout.
Methods. 65 patients with gout without chronic kidney disease were included into the study; 50 of them had arterial hypertension. Standard biochemical parameters of blood and urine, characterizing uric acid metabolism, were analyzed.
Results. Hypertensive patients had more severe gout (severity index 3,6 [2,7; 5] vs 2,2 [2; 3]) and higher levels of uricemia (555[472,5; 625,5] vs 454 [355;504] mcmol/l). Patients with arterial hypertension III stage had highest levels of uricemia and the most severe gout.
Conclusion. Uricemia and severity of gout increased according to the enhancement of arterial hypertension.
