I usually get up at 5 AM, because I need to pee. The rest of the family gets up at 6 AM, although our kids still think it sounds yucky to get worms (as in "the early bird gets the worm").
When I get up I test my uric acid after going to the toilet (where I check the pH of my urine). But I have noticed that the readings are on the low side, especially since usually seith on the heating at 5 AM (we have a big house and do not heat all the rooms). So this morning I got an indication on the UASure saying "t low" tollowed by an uric acid level of 4.6. So I decided to repeat the test a couple of hours later (before breakfast), when I got 6.7 mg/dL. The only difference was that the room was warmer. The UASure seems to need an ambient temperature of about 16 degrees centigrade to work properly.
Todays weather and temperature: Somewhat windy, clear and around 10 deg C.
Breakfast: Cheese sandwiches
Lunch: Root vegetable curry and two spam sandwiches. Huh? Spam is high-purine, right? Yes, but I want to see if I can cause a controlled spike in the uric acid, to make future supplement tests even more reliable.
Snack: An apple
Dinner: Vegetable soup with tomato and cheese sandwiches.
Todays supplements and dosage: 6 fish oil capsules.
Todays UA reading: 6.7 mg/dL
Todays step count: I decided to stay at home today as I have a runny nose and a bit of cough (Covid-19 does not color your snot yellow, so I think it is an ordinary cold). But I did take the kids riding their bicycles to the nearby pool. So I ended up with 6822 steps.
