What is a Urinalysis Test?

A Urinalysis test checks a patient's urine sample for various components, including waste material, fluids and other substances from their blood which are released through the urine after leaving the kidneys. Urine is comprised of hundreds of assorted bodily wastes, and can be affected by your diet, the amount of exercise you get, as well as how well your kidneys are operating. It is sometimes ordered as part of a routine examination, but also may be prescribed by a doctor to assess the origination of certain symptoms. It might also be part of diagnosing a particular medical condition, such as diabetes, kidney infection or kidney stones.

Who May Need a Urinalysis Test?

Though it may be ordered by a physician as part of a routine checkup, your doctor may ask you to have the test performed in order to check for a disease or infection of your urinary tract, or as a means of examining the efficacy of treatments for certain conditions. These conditions can include diabetes, kidney stones, urinary tract infections (UTIs), high blood pressure, as well as a number of kidney or liver diseases.

What Should I Expect from My Urinalysis Test?

Women who are taking a urinalysis test will want to let their doctor know if they are menstruating or close to starting their menstruation before taking the test. Once you have received your results, speak with your doctor about how they concern you and your health specifically.
