Of course I had to eat something sweet and ruin my uric acid efforts.
Todays weather and temperature: Rain showers on and off all day.
Current stress level (scale from 1 (low) to 5 (high)): 3
Breakfast: Bread from our favorite bakery cafe. Although they are only bakery now, the cafe part is closed until the pandemic is over.
Lunch: Yakiniku restaurant, no meat. Yes, that felt as weird as it sounds, but the stone-baked bibimbap was quite acceptable.
Snack: Fried and pickled vegetables in the restaurant of the hot spring bath next to closest to us.
Dinner: Hamburger, tonkatsu, and baloney sandwich. No, I am not going on a high-purine diet again. The supermarket suddenly had an entire corner full of meat alternatives. And while the menchikatsu (a kind of breaded and deep-fried hamburger) was so-so, the hamburger (with cheese in it) was better than many hamburgers I have had in restaurarants; and the baloney sandwich was better than most I have had in America. Unfortunately, I also had a slice of apple pie and helped my son eat his traditional Japanese sweet. Which probably will reflect on my UA tomorrow.
Todays supplements and dosage: None. I am thinking what I should try next: Orotic acid, bicarbonate (but not of soda), Japanese matured garlic, or vitamin C. But I would really like to get my uric acid under control first.
Todays UA reading (before breakfast): 9.5 mg/dL, so one thing I will do to get it under control is to avoid those fabulous Taiwanese lunches.
