Correlations between uric acid and levodopa-induced dyskinesia in men with Parkinson’s disease

Takeaway

  • Higher uric acid (UA) levels are associated with increased risk of levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID) and are more prevalent in males.

Why this matters

    The correlation between UA and Parkinson’s disease (PD) is complex with contradictory findings, and until now, associations between LID and baseline UA levels in people with PD has not been studied.
