Urine Test - More Information

The urinalysis test, sometimes known as a urine test or a UA test, is a commonly run generic urine screening test that checks for various markers in the urine. Important markers checked in the UA lab test include the color, appearance, specific gravity, pH, glucose, bilirubin, ketones, occult blood, protein, nitrite, leukocyte esterase and WBC.

The urinalysis lab test snaps a helpful picture of one's overall health status and, as a result, is frequently ordered in conjunction with the CBC test and the CMP test. Procedurally, a UA test is easily performed as it simply requires a standard urine sample.

A urine test report offers interesting information about one's overall health status. Please review our urinalysis sample report to see an example of what it looks like. The color, appearance and specific gravity components help assess for dehydration. Glucose and ketones will primarily screen for possible diabetes. Occult blood and protein in the urine test may signify underlying kidney damage. The nitrite, leukocyte esterase and WBC levels are useful for identifying a urinary tract infection.

This urine lab test does not screen for drugs or for sexually transmitted infections. The 10 panel drug test and the urine pain panel respectively are better choices for those concerns.
