The prevalence of hyperuricemia has increased substantially in recent decades. It has been suggested that it is an independent risk factor for weight gain, hypertension, hypertriglyceridemia, metabolic syndrome (#MetS), and cardiovascular disease..
..Participants in the upper quartile of the consumption of total dairy products (multiadjusted prevalence ratio (PR) = 0.84; 95% CI: 0.75–0.94; P-trend 0.02), low-fat dairy products (PR = 0.79; 95% CI: 0.70–0.89; P-trend <0.001), total milk (PR = 0.81; 95% CI: 0.73–0.90; P-trend<0.001), low-fat milk (PR = 0.80; 95% CI: 0.72–0.89; P-trend<0.001, respectively), low-fat yogurt (PR = 0.89; 95% CI: 0.80–0.98; P-trend 0.051), and cheese (PR = 0.86; 95% CI: 0.77–0.96; P-trend 0.003) presented a lower prevalence of hyperuricemia. Whole-fat dairy, fermented dairy, and yogurt consumption were not associated with hyperuricemia.
High consumption of total dairy products, total milk, low-fat dairy products, low-fat milk, low-fat yogurt, and cheese is associated with a lower risk of hyperuricemia.
