I forgot to take my uric acid measurement before breakfast, and since the uric acid level always goes up when you start being active, it is higher than usual. However, there is a consideration here if you want beat gout by reducing your uric acid, this means you need to have longer periods below 6.8 mg/dL than above. It does not matter if your uric acid peaks after breakfast, as long as it is less than 6.8 mg/dL for longer periods of time than it is higher. I should probably repeat the measurement over a day that I did before, to check that the base level is lower.
Todays weather and temperature: Cloudy, grey, and warmish winds.
Current stress level (scale from 1 (low) to 5 (high)): 2
Breakfast: Granola, yoghurt, and a banana. Except for the yoghurt, they contain sugar - and this will increase the uric acid since my liver will happily jump at it and try to turn the sugar into glucose, whether my body needs it or not.
Lunch: Spring cabbage in blue cheese melt. This was really easy to make, tasty, and without purines. Read more on the recipe page (as soon as I get around to updating it).
Snack: Nuts, cheese, and Japanese crackers (senbei). Not exactly at the same time.
Dinner: Sandwiches with tofu, fetacheese and lettuce; and a bowl of vegetable soup.
Todays supplements and dosage: 3 g vitamin C, 6 fish oil capsules.
Todays UA reading: 7.6 mg/dL, but this was after breakfast (I forgot to do it earlier, some commotion in the morning).
Todays step count: 8674 steps
How much did I drink today?: Water 2.5 liter, coffee 1 liter.
This weeks weight: 118.8 kg
Waist circumference: 115 cm
How many times did I go to the toilet today? #1 8 times, #2 3 times.
My urine pH this morning (for why this matters, read more here): 7
Was my urine strange in any way? Not that I could see.
How many minutes did I use the Sixpad Foot Fit Plus? None, busy day again. You can use it when you do other things, but I find it easier when that is something you do not have to think about. And thinking was something I had to do plenty of today.
