What does a urinalysis test for? A urinalysis test is an incredibly effective screening procedure that offers the potential to uncover a host of ailments. A basic urine test serves to indicate whether the kidneys are functioning properly, and the test can expose a range of health concerns that may not be readily apparent to the patient. For the individual who is looking for a comprehensive and affordable test that can be completed quickly and easily, the urine test is quite valuable. Urinalysis tests that are available through Walk-in Lab can screen for literally dozens of indicators, with some of the more common variables being: • The Kidney profile BUN or Urea Nitrogen panel: This test measures byproducts of nitrogen to determine if the kidneys are functioning properly. • Microscopic examination: This test evaluates general conditions of the urinary tract and can uncover dehydration concerns, kidney stones, urinary tract infections, renal diseases, neoplasms, and inflammation of the urinary tract. • Fluids and electrolytes in the urine: The presence of appropriate levels of sodium in the body will help to regulate the electrical activities of the nervous system and the muscles. Potassium helps control muscle movement and nervous control, which chloride in the system keeps the body’s electrolytes in check. • Carbon dioxide, Total test: This screen helps detect and evaluate the amount of carbon dioxide in the system, which can be an indicator of an imbalance of electrolytes. • Calcium in the system: This essential mineral forms the foundation for our bones and teeth and helps provide normal control and functioning of our nerves, muscles, and blood clotting. • Urine culture, comprehensive test: This test examines the urine for abnormal levels of bacteria and is best performed early in the morning. This gives any bladder-based bacteria plenty of time to incubate. A range of ailments can be uncovered based on the findings of this panel. • Glucose: Glucose or sugar isn’t normally found in the urine, so the detection of glucose may uncover issues with undiagnosed diabetes or damaged or diseased kidneys. • Proteins: The presence of protein in the urine is an important indicator, but there are a few activities that may result in increased protein levels during a urinalysis. Rigorous exercise, pregnancy, and running a high fever can all contribute to excessive levels of protein in the urine. Oftentimes, a damaged or diseased kidney will allow for high levels of protein in the urine, and medical treatment should follow. • pH levels: The relative measurement of how acidic or basic your urine is will help doctors understand some of your body’s basic functions. Based on the actual pH levels of the urinalysis, doctors may ask you to modify your pH levels through a controlled diet or medication. A urine test is a highly effective screening procedure that costs very little and provides a host of insightful information. Urinalysis cost ranges from $30 to $247 depending on the depth of the panel. Walk-In Lab offers these same quality urine tests while you save! Our urine tests start at $22.
