The maintenance target is 6. Now you might get away with a bit more. There are individual variations, environmental issues and so forth. In theory, crystals shouldn’t form under 7 but we need to allow for joints colder than regular body temperature as well daily/seasonal/random variations…

I doubt less than 200mg would be enough in your case. But the blood tests will tell…
Just don’t jump to conclusions on the basis of a single test. These need to be repeated and what matters most is the average.
