Abstract

We carried out a study of 43 male asymptomatic subjects with high levels of uric acid but showing no signs of arterial hypertension, obesity or alcohol abuse. Initially, we investigated cholesterol levels, triglycerides in blood serum and the very low density lipoprotein fraction. The results showed asymptomatic hyperuricemia, frequently associated with mixed hyperlipidemia or hypertriglyceridemia. In our cases, however, the association was not connected to exogenous factors such as obesity or alcohol consumption. We also found the very low density lipoprotein fraction to be anomalous compared to the control group, which suggests that the metabolism of this lipoprotein is altered by the aforesaid association.
