If you are subjected to symptoms of pain and swelling around the area of joints, it is an indication of booking yourself an uric acid serum test.
Call a nearby diagnostic center to book a test from the comfort of your home. The blood sample will be collected by a diagnostic individual in a test tube and carried to the lab for further investigations.
Once you have received your results, it is your responsibility to report to your consultant doctor and get a proper interpretation of the results.
It is not advisable for you to interpret the results on your own and go for self prescribed medications.
