Possibility of skewed Uric Acid test results?

Sorry for the bombardment of ques……one more and I’ll shut up. I haven’t seen this point brought up. have read that prior to taking a UA blood test one should abstain from eating/drinking 4 hrs prior to the test and make it known if you have taken any aspirin/ibuprofen. alcohol and vit.c which might skew test results. my GP never mentioned this. could this fact point to a possible need for a home uric acid tester? don’t know whether I would totally trust the home tester results but it would at least give you a trend
