Answer

If uric acid levels are found to be persistently elevated, an estimation of total uric acid excretion may be needed. The estimation of uric acid excretion is recommended in young males who are hyperuricemic, females who are premenopausal, people with a serum uric acid value greater than 11 mg/dL, and patients with gout.
