URINALYSIS:

Urinalysis is a longstanding diagnostic tool used by doctors to detect and diagnose a large assortment of systematic ailments. As the field of nephrology has improved, more and more substances have been isolated as being significant in their abundance or absence. This test gives doctors an incredible amount of information pertinent to the health of the body and its specific systems.

THE INDIVIDUAL DISORDERS THAT CAN BE DETECTED BY THIS TEST INCLUDE:

Dehydration, Ketonuria, Hyperthyroidism, Urinary Infection, Diabetes Mellitus, Kidney Infections/Tumors, Various Nephritis and Vasculitis, Acute Urate Nephropathy, and Urine Toxicology

 

The mechanics of testing the urine collected in a urinalysis are performed in several different ways. The simpler tests are "dipstick" tests where a test strip or stick can be dipped into the specimen effortlessly, providing a color change to signify positive/negative results. A similarly straightforward test is physical observation of the sample; this will determine if there are any macromolecules present that should have been filtered and kept in the blood.
