High levels of uric acid in people with bipolar

Have you heard of the study done on this? What is your experience with it? If any of you have been following my posts you would know i could have bipolar and i'm trying to gather as much info as possible to help my psych rule it out or diagnose me. My symptoms are very similar to bipolar and just now i saw a study done that says people with bipolar have high uric acid levels. Well, i often pass uric acid stones so i'm pretty sure i have high uric acid levels. Should i mention this to my psychiatrist?

Could it be due to lithium or some other mood stabiliser used to treat bipolar disorder?

I think the study said it was uric acid levels were generally higher in people with bipolar. I think lithium can exacerbate that though.

I supposedly have Schizophrenia and I have high uric acid levels. I thought maybe it was due to antipsychotics
