Abstract:   (245 Views)
Background: Recently, there has been an increasing interest in epidemiological and clinical studies for finding a role of uric acid in cardio-metabolic diseases, especially in children and adolescents. However, these potential relationships still remain unproven and its pathophysiological mechanisms have not been recognized.
Objectives: This study aimed to assess the potential association between serum uric acid (SUA) levels and cardio-metabolic risk factors in a population-based sample of Iranian children and adolescents.
Methods: Data of 595 individuals aged 7–18 years were assessed. Anthropometric measurements and laboratory tests were performed according to standardized protocols.
Results: The mean (SD) age of 595 students was 12.39 ± 3.07 years. The overall mean (SD) of uric acid level among Iranian children and adolescents was 4.22 (1.13) mg/dl, with significant differences between girl and boy participants (4.04 ± 0.97 mg/dl vs 4.38 ± 1.24 mg/dl, respectively, p < 0.05). The prevalence of hyperuricemia based on 90th percentile of SUA levels was 10.6%.  There was positive association between SUA level and abdominal obesity (waist circumference ≥ 90th percentile) (OR: 1.54 – 95% CI: 1.26 to 1.86) and general obesity (sex-specific BMI for >95th percentile) (OR: 2.32 – 95% CI: 1.74 to 3.11).
Conclusions: This study suggests that body mass index and waist circumference are cardio-metabolic risk factors that are significantly associated with serum uric acid levels in children and adolescents.
