you can assess the effectiveness of a UA-lowering intervention by looking at the average duration of your symptoms. If most of your symptoms go away quicker than they used to, you are on the right track no matter how unusual the symptoms are.

That’s a great reason for maintaining a gout diary. Because, as well as recording test results and treatment changes, you can also record symptoms. Especially, if you record days with no symptoms, you have good information to confirm gout recovery.

As humans, we tend to focus on the unusual, then forget all the good days when we are symptom-free.
