Blood tests show high level of uric acid

I recently underwent a full blood workup and everthing is within the normal levels, except for the level of uric acid which is 65mg/l or 387 umol/l. Is this something to be worried about? I do not have kidney stones but do need to get up at least 2-3 times per night to urinate. Is this linked??

I suggest that you ask your doctor to do a 24 hour urine test, to evaluate your kidney function properly.
