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.

What does a positive urinalysis result mean?

A urinalysis gives some information about what is going on with your body. Based on the test, either the doctor will prescribe you medications or ask you to take more tests to look into the root cause of the symptoms. In short, the treatment of a positive urinalysis depends on the reason for taking the test in the first place.

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.
