Routine Urine Analysis
Produced as a waste product by the kidneys, your urine can tell you a lot about the state of your health. Many disorders may be detected in their early stages by identifying substances that are generally not present in the urine or by measuring abnormal levels of certain substances including glucose, protein, bilirubin, and bacteria.
A urinalysis (UA) examines the appearance, concentration, and content of urine, which can aid the detection of conditions including urinary tract infections, kidney diseases, and diabetes.
Note: While pregnancy tests and drug screenings often include urine samples, those tests look for substances that are not included in this routine UA. This is not a drug test or pregnancy test.
No special preparation.
Detects if nitrites, byproducts of nitrogen waste, are present in the urine. Nitrites in the urine are often the result of certain bacteria that when growing in the bladder, ureters, or kidneys can be a sign of a urinary tract infection (UTI) or other causes.
Detects hemoglobin which usually indicates the presence of microscopic blood in the urine, also known as hematuria.
Measures the level of ketones; compounds made by the liver in response to your body burning fat for energy instead of glucose.
Measures the level of a protein called albumin in urine.
Measures the acidity or alkalinity of urine.
A measure of urine concentration, determined by comparing the density of urine to the density of water, and used to help evaluate hydration status and other urinalysis results.
A muscle-produced waste product filtered out by the kidneys.
Measures the level of urobilinogen, a byproduct of bilirubin that is eventually eliminated through the stool and urine.
A visual examination of the urine’s physical appearance, which includes assessing color, clarity, or cloudiness.
The visual examination and classification of the urine’s color.
