FAQs on Urine test
What are the Components of Urinalysis?
A Urinanalysis is a fairly easy test that is done by visual inspection, strip testing, and microscopy of urine samples. The physical (visual) component involves the inspection of color, odor, turbidity, specific gravity, and volume of urine. The chemical component uses a dipstick to check pH, proteins, ketones, glucose, blood cells, bilirubin, leukocyte esterase, and nitrates. The microscopic component detects casts, bacteria, yeasts, epithelial cells, crystals, and blood cells in urine.
How does a urine sample be collected?
Since bacteria, cells, and other particles can readily contaminate urine, it is advisable to wash the genital area with water, not soap, before providing a sample. Using "clean" midstream urine is necessary to obtain an accurate result and prevent bacterial contamination. By stopping the flow of pee after a few seconds and collecting this middle section of the urine in a cup, you may obtain a sample of midstream urine. If there is anything more you need to be aware of for your particular test, your doctor will let you know.
What do the findings of the urinalysis reveal?
Urinalysis results allow laboratories to utilise urinalysis to look for indications of further issues. For instance, excessive quantities of cholesterol in the urine might result in cholesterol crystals. Urinary casts are typically a symptom of kidney illness, such as renal pelvis inflammation. A doctor can be consulted about unusual results, and other, more accurate testing, such as blood tests, might be performed.
