There is substantial relation between individuals' serum uric acid level and their heights and weights. Even when the association of uric acid level with height/weight is partialed out, significant resemblances in uric acid level are found between biologically related persons (parents and offspring; siblings) but not between spouses. When the association of height/weight is partialed out, uric acid level does not have a significant association with measures of cognitive ability or with educational or occupational attainment.
