sorry for the bombardment of ques……one more and i’ll shut up.

Please don’t shut up. I need the questions! Without them, this forum fails.

I do wonder though, Carroll and Mark. Why does a discussion about uric acid test results not have an actual test result?

Anyway, the general rule is that uric acid varies naturally. So, although you get an exact number, it’s better to think of a range. For example, if your result is 7, best to think it’s 6.5 to 7.5. And, it’s better to test at the same time of day. I’ve no idea why “aspirin/ibup. alcohol and vit.c ” might skew results. If you give me a reference to where you read that, I can assess it.
