What is urinalysis?
Urinalysis is a broad term used to describe urine testing.
This form of testing is used to detect and diagnose conditions such as:
- Urinary tract infections
- Kidney disease
Urine tests may be used to diagnose medical conditions such as those listed above, as well as check your overall health, and monitor any existing conditions you may have been diagnosed with. These tests are commonly performed during a routine check-up, before surgery, or during pregnancy. They help doctors screen for and diagnose conditions that may not be apparent during a physical examination.
