The aim of the study is to review the association between diabetes Mellitus and serum uric acid levels. The objective is to review how uric acid level is related to diabetes Mellitus. Diabetes is an increasingly important disease globally. New data from IDF showed that there are 336 million people with diabetes in 2011 and this is expected to rise to 552 million by 2030. It has been suggested that, diabetic epidemic will continue even if the level of obesity remains constant. The breakdown of foods high in protein into chemicals known as purines is responsible for the production of uric acid in the body. If there is too much of uric acid in the body it causes variety of side effects. Thus identifying risk factors of serum uric acid is required for the prevention of diabetes. The review was done to relate how serum uric acid level is associated with the risk of diabetes.
