We found an increase in mean serum urate with increasing glucose concentrations up to 7.0 mmol/L in men and 9.0 mmol/L in women. Thereafter increasing glucose values were accompanied by a statistically significant decrease in urate concentrations. This fall was particularly marked in younger subjects. We believe this may have important… CONTINUE READING
