Part Descriptions

LP15935-7   Urate
Uric acid (urate) is a product of the metabolic breakdown of purine nucleotides. In humans, about 70% of daily uric acid disposal occurs via the kidneys.

Elevated levels of uric acid, or hyperuricemia, may be due to genetic inheritance or diet. Excess serum levels of uric acid can lead to a type of arthritis known as gout, kidney stones, cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. Lesch-Nyhan syndrome (LNS), an extremely rare inherited disorder, is also associated with very high serum uric acid levels. Spasticity, involuntary movement and cognitive retardation as well as manifestations of gout are seen in cases of this syndrome. LNS is due to mutations in the HPRT1 gene. To date (2012), mutations in nine other genes have been linked to the excretion of uric acid by the kidneys: SLC2A9; ABCG2; SLC17A1; SLC22A11; SLC22A12; SLC16A9; GCKR; LRRC16A; and PDZK1.

Decreased levels of uric acid, known as hypouricemia, can have numerous causes, including low dietary zinc or iron intake. Hypouricemia has been associated with multiple sclerosis (MS).

LP7238-1   Body fld
The LOINC "Body fld" System represents body fluids other than serum, plasma, blood, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid. When a LOINC term with the System "Body fld" is used, the specific specimen source or body fluid type should be reported elsewhere with the result. Where more specific terms for pleural, peritoneal, synovial fluid, etc. exist, we encourage you to use the more specific terms. In contrast to "Body fld", the System "Asp" in LOINC represents the fluid withdrawn during an aspiration procedure from an abnormal collection of fluid, such as from an abscess or cyst. "Asp" is used for abnormal fluid collections that are aspirated, while "Body fld" is used for named body fluids, such as synovial fluid or peritoneal fluid, that are not inherently pathologic.
