Introduction : Elevated serum uric acid (SUA) concentrations have been suggested to associate with metabolic syndrome (MetS) and its components. However, limited information is available regarding the relationship between SUA and MetS . Material and Methods: A cross sectional prevalence study was done in department of Medicine, KGMU, Lucknow on 100 patients of the age between 25-65 years who fulfilled the IDF criteria for Metabolic Syndrome to study relationship between elevated serum uric acid metabolic syndrome. Result:Maximum number of patients were in 31-40 years of age group (45%) followed by those aged 41-50 years (26%), <30 years (15%), >50 years (14%). Mean age of patients was 39.59?8.67 year. On comparing the serum uric acid value of two groups, statistically significant difference among patients of group I (Mets pt) and group II (non Mets patients) was observed. Serum uric acid level of subjects of group I (5.547?2.02 mg/dl) was found to be significantly higher than that of group II (4.8 ? 1.0)
