Diminishing returns: there are limits to how fast this ‘debulking’ can happen. It’s not only about how much UA you have in your blood.
The main point of getting your UA lower than it needs to be is to make your flareups shorter and less severe.

UA blood tests: you haven’t done enough tests to get a decent picture of what’s going on but to the extent you are ‘debulking’, all tests will be biased high. If you’re already taking more than you need to (obviously I can’t know whether that is indeed the case), your test results will trend down even if you do not increase the dose further.
