Effects of the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) Diet and Sodium Intake on Serum Uric Acid

28 Nov 2016Stephen P. Juraschek, Allan C. Gelber, Hyon K. Choi, Lawrence J. Appel, Edgar R. Miller III

The DASH diet lowered serum uric acid UA, and this effect was greater among participants with hyperuricemia. Moreover, we found that higher sodium intake decreased serum UA, which enhances our knowledge of urate pathophysiology and risk factors for hyperuricemia.
