Description

The Home Liver Function Health Test provides you with a fast indication of 10 key biomarkers to help you understand more about your liver function and body. This test kit uses a small sample of urine on a strip (5 strips provided) which is mailed directly to you in a kit and contains an analysis chart and comprehensive instructions.

A urinalysis or urine test is a non-invasive procedure that checks for the composition of urine. This allows us to detect various types of medical conditions: diabetes, urinary tract infection, and kidney-related diseases, to name a few.

Simple & Easy

The easy-to-use testing kits are mailed immediately on purchase and should reach you within 1-3 business days. In the box, there will be full instructions provided on how to complete the sample in a fast and pain-free manner. Each kit includes 5 strips for multiple testing.

Perfect for

If you are suffering from undiagnosed symptoms and is looking to understand more about liver function.

 

The 10 items checked in the Home Urine Health Test:

Leukocytes: White Blood Cells produced by the body to help fight infection. Could indicate a UTI or Kidney Infection.

Nitrites: Bacteria that cause urinary tract infections (UTIs) convert nitrates into nitrites. A positive result for nitrites could indicate a UTI.

Urobilinogen: A by-product of the breakdown of Bilirubin. Smaller levels are normal, but larger levels could indicate a liver disease.

Protein: High levels of protein in a urine sample can indicate kidney disease.

pH: Checks the acidity or alkalinity of urine.

Blood: A serious UTI/Cystitis can cause blood in urine as well as other issues such as kidney stones or bladder/kidney cancer.

Specific Gravity (S.G.): Higher specific gravity could be signs of a UTI, diabetes or even dehydration. Other issues could be a kidney infection, kidney failure or heart failure.

Ketone: Ketones are produced when the body is not able extract energy from Glucose and therefore starts to burn off body fat. A high level of ketones could simply be down to dieting, not eating for prolonged periods of time (12-18 hours), or something more serious such as diabetes.

Bilirubin: A by-product of the breakdown of red blood cells. These cells should not be present in the urine and these could indicate liver disease.

Glucose: Not usually found in urine as the kidneys are able to process it and release it back into the body. Glucose in urine can indicate undiagnosed diabetes.

This test uses a urine sample, but why?

A urinalysis or urine test is a non-invasive procedure which check for the composition of urine. This allows us to detect some types of medical conditions: diabetes, urinary tract infection, and kidney-related diseases, to name a few.

How does it work?

A urine test can monitor the patient’s current medical conditions as well as assess whether the treatment the patient currently receives is effective. The TEST NAME test strip uses a dipstick which is the most common method of checking the chemical components of urine. The strip from Test Your Intolerance has squares of different colours attached to it and the whole strip is dipped in the urine sample that you collected. In a well-lit room, you then look at the squares to compare the presented colours against the sample guide provided.

Each square represents a particular component including the concentration of urine and pH level. You can also see the proteins in the urine such as: albumin, glucose/sugar, ketones (a by-product of fat breakdown), haemoglobin, leukocyte esterase/white blood cells, bilirubin, nitrite, and urobilinogen (1,2,3).
