Hyperuricaemia Significantly Impacts COPD Risk, Study Confirms

15 Mar 2024 • Recent research provides convincing evidence suggesting a robust positive association between serum urate and the risk of developing COPD.

  • Individuals having hyperuricaemia exhibited an elevated risk vs. those with normal serum urate levels (aHR: 3.35).
  • Further analysis indicated a rapid rise in COPD risk with serum urate concentrations >420 µmol/L.

These findings underscored the importance of considering hyperuricaemia as a potential risk factor for COPD. Further research is warranted for investigating whether the management of the levels of serum urate could potentially lower the risk of developing COPD.
