The Link between Diabetes & High Uric Acid

A study published in The American Journal of Medicine examined thousands of adults and their children. The researchers found that those with higher uric acid levels were more likely to get type 2 diabetes.

People with type 2 diabetes are more likely to have hyperuricemia, and people with gout and high uric acid may be more likely to get diabetes. Not everyone with hyperuricemia gets gout, but your chances go up as uric acid levels rise.

Type 2 diabetes happens when your body doesn’t use insulin well and sugar stays in the blood instead of moving into cells. This is called insulin resistance. Studies show that this may play a role in the development of gout, and hyperuricemia may make insulin resistance worse.

The gout-diabetes connection is especially strong in women. Researchers say that women with gout were 71% more likely to get diabetes than women without it.

Other Factors


Almost 90% of people with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese. People who are obese are 4 x more likely to get gout than a person of normal weight. Carrying extra pounds slows down your kidneys’ ability to remove uric acid.

High Blood Pressure

About 80% of people with type 2 diabetes also have high blood pressure. That raises acid levels and is also linked to insulin resistance


If you’re older than 45, you have a bigger risk for both.

People with diabetes should have a uric acid level at or below 6 mg/dL to reduce the risk. Ask your doctor to test your blood’s uric acid level if you are diabetic. If your levels are high – we highly recommend you start taking Lifetones Acid Clear. It is sugar-free so safe for diabetics.
