Article summary:

1. Asymptomatic hyperuricemia, which refers to high levels of uric acid in the blood without the presence of gout symptoms, may not be truly asymptomatic. It can lead to monosodium urate crystal deposition in tissues and promote chronic inflammation.

2. Hyperuricemia inhibits adenosine monophosphate (AMP)-associated protein kinase and may affect innate immune responses through epigenetic modifications. This suggests that it has a potential impact on the immune system and inflammatory processes.

3. Asymptomatic hyperuricemia is associated with various comorbidities such as hypertension, chronic kidney disease, coronary artery disease, and diabetes. Treatment studies suggest that lowering urate levels may reduce the risk of developing or worsening these comorbidities. However, more research is needed to establish causality and determine which patients with asymptomatic hyperuricemia would benefit from urate-lowering treatment.
