The uric acid level is high. If there is associated gout or urolithiasis or chronic kidney disease then uric acid lowering therapy with febuxostat or allopurinol can be advised in consultation with your doctor. There are no clear cut guidelines regarding treating an asymptotic high uric acid level.
