Hello there. There is a mechanism for digesting proteins in the body. And the end product of it is uric acid which is to be excreted out. In humans it stops till uric acid, but in certain animals and other species uric acid is not the end step of protein digestion. So a very high protein diet can lead to elevated uric acid levels. Too much indulgence can harm you. Regards
