Table 1 Thresholds used to define risk levels

From: Untangling the complex relationships between incident gout risk, serum urate, and its comorbidities

Variable Unit Levels
Serum urate mg/dl Normal: < 6; medium-high, 6–8; high: > 8
Body mass index kg/ m2 Non-obese: ≤ 30; obese: > 30
Systolic blood pressure mm Hg Normal or prehypertensive: ≤ 140; hypertensive: > 140
Glucose mmol/l Normal: ≤ 7; high: > 7
HDL cholesterol mmol/l Low: < 1; normal: ≥ 1
LDL cholesterol mmol/l Normal: ≤ 3.4; high: > 3.4
eGFR mL/min/1.73 m2 Low: < 60; normal or mildly reduced: ≥ 60
Triglycerides mmol/l Normal: ≤ 1.7; high: > 1.7
  1. The thresholds used to define normal and high levels, and unit conversion ratios were obtained from other sources [1923]
