What is a Urinalysis?

A urinalysis is a diagnostic test that examines the content and characteristics of your urine. This test helps detect a wide range of disorders, including urinary tract infections (UTIs), kidney disease, diabetes, and more. By analyzing various components such as glucose, protein, red and white blood cells, and bacteria, a urinalysis can provide valuable information about your body's overall health and functioning.

When is a Urinalysis Needed?

Urinalysis is a versatile test used in numerous medical situations. Your healthcare provider may recommend a urinalysis for several reasons, including:

  • Routine Health Checkups: As part of regular health screenings to monitor your general health.

  • Symptom Evaluation: If you experience symptoms such as frequent urination, pain during urination, abdominal pain, or blood in the urine.

  • Monitoring Chronic Conditions: To manage chronic conditions like diabetes, kidney disease, and hypertension.

  • Pre-Surgical Assessments: As a preoperative test to ensure there are no underlying issues that could complicate surgery.

  • Pregnancy Monitoring: To monitor the health of both the mother and the baby during pregnancy.
