To monitor several diseases like kidney disorders or urinary tract infections (UTIs)
Using the “clean-catch” technique a urine sample is needed. One or two ounces of urine after leaving some flow, collecting some and then voiding the rest.
The test can be a visual examination by checking the color and clarity of the urine. By chemical examination, checking the ph levels, protein m, glucose, etc. And by the microscopic examination to check the presence of red blood cells, white blood cells, epithelial cells, bacteria, yeast, parasites.
If levels are above 5wbc/hpf, it’s likely to be an infection. A urine culture may be needed to diagnose the type of infection.
