Uric acid is a chemical naturally produced and excreted by your body. While high blood levels of uric acid are common and may result in symptoms of gout, unusually low uric acid levels develop infrequently and are usually a sign of another underlying health condition. Slightly low uric acid levels are not normally a cause for concern. In certain cases, simply increasing the amount of purine you consume as a part of your regular diet may help stabilize your blood levels of uric acid. Alternatively, your doctor may prescribe medication that specifically treats the cause of your low uric acid levels...
