Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease that is associated with a higher risk of CVD than the general population. Chronic inflammatory conditions are likely to alter magnesium levels and various biochemical parameters. Magnesium has been shown to help in fighting with inflammation by reducing inflammatory markers such as CRP and interleukin-6 and decreased level of Mg has been suggested to be reasonable marker of RA. There is growing evidence that serum uric acid might play a crucial role in inflammatory responses. The association between serum uric acid concentrations and inflammation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) has been still controversial.
