BACKGROUND Gout and serum uric acid are associated with mortality but their simultaneous contributions have not been fully evaluated in the general population. PURPOSE To explore the independent and conjoint relationships of gout and uric acid with mortality in the US population. METHODS Mortality risks of gout and serum uric acid were determined for 15 773 participants, aged 20 years or older, in the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey by linking baseline information… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Metabolic Syndrome in Primary Gout
TLDR
The condition of the MS occurs in about one-third of the patients with primary gout, and an increased waist circumference, blood pressure, and triglycerides levels is the most frequent MS triad.
J-shaped association between serum uric acid and acute coronary syndrome in patients with essential hypertension
TLDR
Higher SUA levels were independently associated with an elevated risk of ACS incidence and the relationship between SUA Levels and ACS in hypertensive patients was J-shaped.
Serum uric acid levels and cardiovascular mortality in a general Japanese population: the Hisayama Study
TLDR
Risks for cardiovascular disease mortality were higher in both the Q1 and Q5 groups than in the Q3 group after adjustment for confounding factors, and the excess risk of stroke mortality in individuals with lower serum uric Acid levels may indicate a possible cerebroprotective role of uric acid.
Long-term prognostic impact of hyperuricemia in community
TLDR
After adjusting to baseline risk factors and presence of cardiovascular diseases as well as the use of diuretics there were no significant differences in the risk of any of the outcomes when analyzed either according to quintiles of SUA or using a cut-off point SUA ≥360 µmol/l for hyperuricemia.
Failure to reach uric acid target of <0.36 mmol/L in hyperuricaemia of gout is associated with elevated total and cardiovascular mortality
TLDR
Targeting sUA levels of <0.36 mmol/L should be a principal goal in patients with hyperuricaemia of gout in order to reduce CV events and to extend patient survival, as an independent predictor of overall and CV-related mortality.
Incident Gout: Risk of Death and Cause-Specific Mortality in Western Sweden: A Prospective, Controlled Inception Cohort Study
TLDR
Gout was associated with reduced mortality from dementia, which may have implications on urate lowering therapy and possible effects on dementia risk, and highlights the importance of addressing CVD risk factors in gout management.
Increased the risk of heart failure and comorbidities in patients with gout treatment: a population-based cohort study.
TLDR
Gout treatment in Taiwan cannot improve HF and actually increase the risk for HF after combination therapy for gout, revealing that gout could increase therisk of HF.
Association of Gout With Long‐Term Cardiovascular Outcomes Among Patients With Obstructive Coronary Artery Disease
TLDR
A clinical history of gout is associated with worse outcomes in a contemporary population of patients with obstructive coronary artery disease, suggesting that residual cardiovascular risk is not addressed by standard medical therapy.

Gout: an independent risk factor for all-cause and cardiovascular mortality.
TLDR
This study demonstrates a link of gout, not hyperuricaemia, with a higher risk of death from all causes and cardiovascular diseases.
Independent Impact of Gout on Mortality and Risk for Coronary Heart Disease
TLDR
Among men without preexisting CHD, the increased mortality risk is primarily a result of an elevated risk of CVD death, particularly from coronary heart disease (CHD), particularly from CHD.
Long-term cardiovascular mortality among middle-aged men with gout.
TLDR
Among middle-aged men, a diagnosis of gout accompanied by an elevated uric acid level imparts significant independent CVD mortality risk; among men with and without gout, the association between hyperuricemia and CVD was weak and did not persist when analysis was limited to men with hyperURicemia without a diagnosis.
Gout and the risk of acute myocardial infarction.
TLDR
The independent risk relationship between hyperuricemia and acute MI is confirmed and gouty arthritis is associated with an excess risk of acute MI, and this is not explained by its well-known links with renal function, metabolic syndrome, diuretic use, and traditional cardiovascular risk factors.
Association Between Gout and All-Cause as well as Cardiovascular Mortality: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Knowing that patients with gout are at risk emphasizes the need for adequate care and there was an independent association between gout and all-cause as well as cardiovascular mortality.
Relation Between Serum Uric Acid and Risk of Cardiovascular Disease in Essential Hypertension: The PIUMA Study
TLDR
In untreated subjects with essential hypertension, raised uric acid is a powerful risk marker for subsequent cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality.
Plasma uric acid level and risk for incident hypertension among men.
TLDR
In conclusion, no independent association between UA level and risk for incident hypertension was found among older men.
Prognostic Significance of Serum Creatinine and Uric Acid in Older Chinese Patients With Isolated Systolic Hypertension
TLDR
In older Chinese patients with isolated systolic hypertension, serum creatinine and serum uric acid were predictors of mortality.
Serum Uric Acid and Cardiovascular Mortality: The NHANES I Epidemiologic Follow-up Study, 1971-1992
TLDR
Increased serum uric acid levels had a positive relationship to cardiovascular mortality in men and women and in black and white persons and stratifying by cardiovascular risk status, diuretic use, and menopausal status confirmed this relationship.
