The vast amount of uric acid gets dissolved in the blood and cleaned by the kidneys, resulting in urine excretion. The uric acid levels get higher when purine-rich foods and beverages increase. Hyperuricemia is a peculiar condition where the body starts retaining too much uric acid. Hyperuricemia can result in the accumulation of acid particles.
