My UA went up by a lot today. I had not expected that, since I had a very low energy and purine day yesterday. With one exception (that also made me urgently pee a lot): An energy drink that I got as a free sample (rare thing though that is in these Covid-19 times). And BOOM, the uric acid goes through the roof. Conclusion: If you have them every day, energy drinks will give you gout (probably).
Todays weather and temperature: Below zero in the morning, gradually warming to a couple of degrees plus.
Breakfast: My wife made a curry gratin for my son, which I appropriated part of.
Lunch: Vegetable curry with "gammon" tofu burger
Dinner: I shared a "yakitori" chicken sticker with the kids, and had one oyster from the oyster hotpot we had for dinner. Plus lots of vegetables of course. And my sons leftover rice and natto with mekabu seaweed.
Todays supplements and dosage: Aojiru in a banana smoothie, six fish oil capsules.
Todays UA reading: 7.0 mg/dL. For sure, the uric acid serum level (fancy name for how much you have in your blood) goes up and down, but this is a lot.
Todays step count: 10967 steps
How much did I drink today?: Coffee 1 liter, tea 1.5 liter, water 2 liter. About 4.5 liters, 1 1/5 US gallon. And one purine-free beer.
