The inal oxidation product of purine catabolism in humans is Serum uric acid. Excessive production of uric acid and its reduced excretion by the kidneys is the central feature of the clinical state termed, hyperuricemia. The present study was conducted in the department of biochemistry, Subharti medical college, Meerut; after obtaining ethical clearance by the Institutional Ethical Committe (IEC). The present study included patients attending medicine OPD (outpatient department) and IPD (inpatient department); out of which 50 were freshly diagnosed cases of hyperuricemia. The control group included age and sex matched healthy 50 individuals. The present study was done to determine the extent of dyslipidemia in hyperuricemic patients. Association of dyslipidemia and hyperuricemia has been the long interest of researchers. The study does not include patients with known case of coronary artery disease, chronic renal disease, chronic liver disease, diabetes mellitus, and mentally unstable/uncooperative patients. Patients carrying pregnancy and other comorbid condition were also excluded from the study. Our study shows the directly proportional relation between dyslipidemia and hyperuricemia.
