“I’m going to be testing it every saturday for the remainder of the year and reporting my results here.”
That’s great, Johnson. Like @nobody hinted, I believe trends are more important than individual results.
When I used my uric acid meter, I ignored unusually high or low results. And, I plotted moving averages on a spreadsheet.
It’s good to aim for consistent conditions. So, try to test at the same time each Saturday. Also decide if you test before or after breakfast. And, try to eat your final Friday meal at the same time each week.
