Higher than normal acid levels within the blood is named hyperuricemia and may be caused by producing an excessive amount of acid within the body or because of the failure of the kidneys to adequately remove enough acid from the body. Low levels of acid within the blood are seen much less commonly than high levels and are seldom considered cause for concern. Although low values are often related to some sorts of liver or kidney diseases
High acid levels within the urine are seen with gout, myeloma, metastatic cancer, leukaemia, and a diet high in purines. Those vulnerable to kidney stones, who have high acid levels in their urine could also be given medication to stop stone formation.
Low urine acid levels could also be seen with renal disorder, chronic alcohol use, and lead poisoning.
