I never got a response from the Urit manufacturer. But, I might have a lead on a distributer. I think they are in the UK. Is that any good? Do you (or any other Urit-10 owners) want me to ask about shipping rates to USA or other countries?

While I’m waiting, Chris, I have a question I should have asked before.

Why are you bothering with a home test meter when you are taking febuxostat (Uloric)? Is your doctor not doing this for you? I always recommend that gout sufferers get a blood test at least once a year. The test should include uric acid, kidney function, and liver function. The function tests are particularly important for anyone who takes gout medicines, including herbal medicines. In rare cases, uric acid medicines can interfere with kidney or liver function.

This is especially important in the case of febuxostat. See Uloric Liver Warnings for more.
