Over the past decade, a substantial body of clinical evidence has accumulated suggesting that hyperuricemia is an important, independent risk factor for cardiovascular and renal disease not only in patients with hypertension, heart failure, or diabetes, but also in the general population. This book will primarily focus on this issue and discussing the interrelationship of serum uric acid to hypertension and cardiovascular renal disease. (Imprint: Nova)
