You’re taking me right back to my testing days! 😀

It takes a little getting used to. But, once you get into a routine, it’s easy. The trick is to reduce the number of variables as much as you can. It might seem petty to always sit in the same chair. And, always place your equipment in the same place. But, that attention to detail reaps rewards.

It’s sensitive kit, so all efforts to get consistent drop size are worth it. I also used to focus on cleanliness, as skin contaminants can affect results. I’m not saying medical cleaning swabs are necessary. But commonsense avoidance of skin contaminants is good.

I’m excited about seeing more results. And, I’m impressed by the way you’ve made this personal forum your own. You might also think about recording those gout symptoms.
