Hyperuricemia/gout and atrial fibrillation (AF) are two pathological conditions that are highly prevalent in type 2 diabetes and share multiple cardiovascular risk factors. However, the relationship between elevated levels of serum uric acid and risk of AF in type 2 diabetes is currently poorly known.

Hyperuricemia is associated with an increased prevalence of atrial fibrillation in hospitalized patients with type 2 diabetes
