Purpose of Urinalysis
A urinalysis is a test of the urine and is used to detect and treat a wide range of diseases and disorders. Among the most common conditions tested for via urinalysis are pregnancy, urinary tract infections, kidney disease, and diabetes. Part of the urinalysis involves the professional observation of the appearance, content, and concentration of urine. An abnormal result often points toward an illness or a disease.
About the Tests
Our laboratory will be assessing the following items during a urine analysis:

Our technicians will do a microscopic analysis of your urine sample to check for the presence of blood cells. If they are found, this could indicate a number of abnormalities.

If your urine is more acidic or alkaline than is typical, it can imply a variety of conditions and should be monitored.

If protein is present in the urine, it can point to pregnancy or a serious medical issue.
The presence of glucose in the urine could be a sign of diabetes or other serious problems with the blood sugar.
If our technicians find nitrites or the products of bacteria as it breaks down in the urine, this could be a sign of a urinary tract infection.

Abnormalities in the color of the urine can point to issues with medications, fluid balance, or diet. It can also indicate certain diseases.
