Test Process:

Urine microscopy or urinalysis is a set of screening tests that can detect some common diseases. It may be used to screen for and/or help diagnose conditions such as urinary tract infections, kidney disorders, liver problems, diabetes or other metabolic conditions, to name a few.

 

Test Precaution:

A urinalysis may sometimes be ordered when a person has a routine wellness exam, is admitted to the hospital, or will undergo surgery. This test is also issued for women who come during pregnancy check-ups. A urinalysis will likely be ordered when complaints of symptoms of urinary tract infections or other urinary system problems, such as kidney diseases are voiced. Some signs and symptoms may include – abdominal pain, back pain, painful or frequent urination, and/or blood in the urine.

 

Test Outcome:

Urinalysis results can have many interpretations. Abnormal findings are a warning that something may be wrong and should be evaluated further. A healthcare practitioner must correlate the urinalysis results with a person’s symptoms for the causes of abnormal findings with other targeted tests, such as a comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP), complete blood count (CBC), renal panel, liver panel, or urine culture (for urinary tract infection).
