Urine Routine & Microscopy test

Know more about Urine Routine & Microscopy test

It may be used to diagnose urinary tract infections (UTIs) or kidney stones, to screen for kidney diseases, and to monitor diabetes or high blood pressure (hypertension). A urinalysis looks for white and red blood cells, epithelial cells, blood or protein in the urine, crystals, or bacteria, among other things.

Symptoms are :   an infection (cloudy urine), 

dehydration (dark urine color) , 

red blood in the urine, also referred to as hematuria (red urine color), 

liver disease (urine the color of tea), or. 

breakdown of muscle (orange or tea colored urine). 

Preventing and treating illnesses that can lead to acute kidney failure is the best method for avoiding the disease. According to the Mayo Clinic, having a healthy lifestyle that includes regular physical activity and a sensible diet can help to prevent kidney failure. Work with your doctor to manage existing medical conditions that could lead to acute kidney failure. 

Healthy eating plays an important role in reducing the risk of getting chronic kidney disease (CKD). Overweight and obese populations are at greater risk of getting obesity-related chronic diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Hypertension and Hyperlipidemia. These obesity-related diseases can eventually lead to many serious complications including cardiovascular diseases and CKD. Therefore, let's start a healthy eating habit to protect your kidneys.

Depending on the condition causing your hematuria, treatment might involve taking antibiotics to clear a urinary tract infection, trying a prescription medication to shrink an enlarged prostate or having shock wave therapy to break up bladder or kidney stones. In some cases, no treatment is necessary. 

Be sure to follow up with your doctor after treatment to ensure there's no more blood in your urine. 

Test Method 1 : To perform the chemical examination, most clinical laboratories use commercially prepared test strips with test pads that have chemicals impregnated into them. The laboratorian dips the strip into urine, chemical reactions change the colors of the pads within seconds to minutes, and the laboratorian determines the result for each test. To reduce timing errors and eliminate variations in color interpretation, automated instruments are frequently used to "read" the results of the test strip. 

The degree of color change on a test pad can give an estimate of the amount of substance present. For example, a slight color change in the test pad for protein may indicate a small amount of protein present in the urine whereas a deep color change may indicate a large amount.
