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 strip uses a dipstick which is the most common method of checking the chemical components of urine. The strip 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).
