All of us who suffer from gout struggle to find any way of making sense of our condition.
We know that there is no cure, but how can we know if what we are doing is truly controlling it.
With your own URIC ACID METER you can monitor your Uric Acid levels as regularly as you wish and look for patterns that can help you take control.

Your Uric Acid & Glucose Test Kit has everything you need
How often should I test?
Over time the meter provides an indication of what is happening to your uric acid levels.
Testing can be done daily or weekly and ideally should always be done at the same time of day so that you replicate the testing procedure as exactly as possible.
Try to keep a record of your results together with a dairy of the foods etc you have consumed.
Plotting a graph can help you interpret the data.
Personally I initially tested myself daily keeping a record of my diet and now once per week unless I feel the Gout “tingle”. I occasionally check my glucose and cholesterol levels.
How easy is it to use the meter?
There is a very comprehensive instruction booklet, as well as our own notes, Instruction Video, pictures and tips. After a little practice (use the cheaper Glucose strips) you soon get used to getting the right amount of blood into the test strips, and it becomes second nature.
A personal note
"I find that the reassurance of having the meter available, means that I can react to any sign of increasing Uric Acid levels instantly, without going through the process of worrying if that ache or pain is Gout!!!"
