Does anyone have a basic explanation of urinalysis results?

My urinalysis results confuse me.


Answer by  severaltimes (247)

Urinalysis results usually include the following: color, pH (level of acidity, between 4. 8 to 7. 5), specific gravity (ideally below 1. 010), ketones and proteins (both usually negative), glucose (usually negative), hemoglobin (also usually negative), human chorionic gonadotropin (if it is positive, congrats, you're pregnant), and several others.

A Uninalysis is a test to see if certain elements are present in a urine samples. If leukocytes, or nitrates are present it can be a sign of infection. If glucose is present it can be a sign that you are an diabetic. If blood is present it can be a sign of a kidney stone,UTI or other problem

A urinalysis test is very beneficial to your doctor. Urine has the ability to explain something that may be going on inside of your body that nothing else indicates.

They look at the color first. Is it cloudy,dark etc. Then they test the microscopic appearance to test for any bacteria and then the chemical appearance.
