This uric acid levels chart is an alternative to using the uric acid conversion calculator. It allows you to convert uric acid test results between scales used in different countries. It is very important to know your own uric acid level, as this is key to controlling gout.
As you will see below, there are lots of different numbers, and it can be confusing because different scales are used in different countries. You need to know the exact number, and the scale used. When you have your personal uric acid level, you have the starting point for controlling your gout. If you do not know your uric acid level, or if you do not know if it is too high, you can get help in my gout forum. Start a new discussion about your uric acid level.
Though I have assigned labels to different ranges, these are somewhat arbitrary. Please see my explanation of why you should consider uric acid ranges rather than absolute values. My labels will give you a general guide to uric acid levels, but the most important thing for you is to set target levels at different stages of your treatment in conjunction with your doctor.

If you prefer to calculate uric acid measurement scale conversion, I have provided a calculator, and explanations of the uric acid scale conversion routine in my Uric Acid Concentration guidelines.
For each of the ranges listed above, you can get more information by clicking on the icons or headings. Each range has warnings and advice for what you should do to best manage your uric acid levels. Please be aware that uric acid management has to be carried out on a case-by-case basis. Every gout patient is different and each one needs their own personal treatment plan with their own personal uric acid targets.
