My UA will not get down, even though I am back on the low-purine, low-sugar diet. Either I stored up a lot of uric acid during the last few weeks, or I am eating something with hidden purines (there could be shrimp in the spice paste, for instance). There is a potential third explanation, that I am losing so much weight that I am releasing purines, but that feels a bit too much like wishful thinking.
