Checking Uric Acid with Fora Care meter and special strips

Good morning.  I decided to check my uric acid this morning. I searched Dr Boz’s YouTube channel to view one of the videos as a reminder of how to do this and the ideal levels.  Uric acid measures the turnover of cellular debris, and I was reminded that I should test no more than 12 hours after my last meal.  Dr. Boz talks about this in at about the 45-minute mark.  I tested, and was 4.5.  Dr. Boz’s personal goal is below 5.0, and she likes hers at 4.2 to 4.5.  But as another measure of inflammation, I am happy with my number knowing that it can be volatile and I need to pay attention to trends rather than absolute numbers going forward.
