  1. Behavioural and biological correlates of serum uric acid : a study of self-defence officials in Japan.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    In Japan epidemiological data on correlates of serum uric acid are sparse.

    Methods

    Behavioural and biological correlates of serum uric acid were investigated in 2487 men who received a retirement health examination at the Self-Defence Forces Fukuoka Hospital from October 1986 through 1990, excluding those under medication for hyperuricaemia, hypertension or hyperlipidaemia.

    Results

    Multiple regression analysis demonstrated that serum creatinine was the strongest correlate followed by serum triglycerides, body mass index and diastolic blood pressure ; these four variables accounted for 16% of the overall variation in serum uric acid.
