How many people have tested their urine pH themselves at home? What have you found easiest to use to do so (pH sticks/ paper/ electronic meters etc) - any advice for what works best?

Not something I do, but will follow responses and possibly change my management of the condition

I bought myself a full on electronic PH tester at one point but it became like an episode of Breaking Bad every time I went to the loo so I now use PH strips

I have and do often. Not sure I'm reading the stick right way to the tube though. ...

Hi Matt, I used several digital ph meters but the best was a mudder. £15 quid on Amazon (Combined with a plastic cup to wee in).

I genuinely believe if Cystinuriacs understand the cause and effect of their urine pH peaks and troughs it helps self manage the condition.

The Mudder ph tester does not now seem to be available, I'm trying a ' Cuitan Digital PH Meter Tester, 0.01 PH High Accuracy Pocket Size ' through Amazon at under £10.00p, no cup with it through!

I use ph sticks that I buy on amazon and I carry some in my bag and a pot of them at home.
