Sažetak
Hyperuricemia may have an important role in metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Elevated serum uric acid concentration has been shown to be the strong predictor of cardiovascular mortality in several recently published studies. Our aim was to determine the prevalence of hyperuricemia in general Croatian population and to investigate the association of serum uric acid with glucose and lipids. This was a retrospective cross-sectional study on 6, 476 consecutive adults. Hyperuricemia prevalence was 13.9% in general population and it was significantly higher in males, than in females (26% vs. 6% ; P<0.001). Median uric acid concentration was higher in males than in females (343 vs. 238 umol/L ; P<0.001). Age, glucose and lipid parameters did not correlate with uric acid. In hyperuricemic subjects, increased concentrations of glucose (33.1% vs. 13.1% ; P< 0.001), triglycerides (46.9% versus 17.6% ; P<0.001), total cholesterol (69.6% vs. 51.9% ; P<0.001), LDL-cholesterol (64.5% vs. 46.4% ; P<0.001) and decreased concentration of HDL-cholesterol (24.3% vs. 13.0% ; P<0.001) were more prevalent than in subjects with normal serum concentrations of uric acid. Hyperuricemia is highly prevalent in Croatian general population and it aggregates with hyperglycemia and dyslipidemia.
