Urinary Infection Health Care Test

Why is this test important to me?
A urinary infection is an inflammation of the urinary collecting system and is generally caused by bacteria. Men, women and children can contract urinary tract infections. It is more common in women and it can occur in older men when an enlarged prostate gland obstructs the urine flow.

How do I perform the test?
You need to use a (first morning) urine sample, collected in a small container, to perform this test. Immerse the dipstick in the sample of urine and read the result after waiting for 60 seconds.

Why is early diagnosis important?
The early stages of infection can be a symptomatic, depending on whether the infection is in the upper (urethras, kidneys) or lower (urethra, bladder) urinary tract. Early diagnosis prevents the proliferation of bacteria and the development of pyelitis (inflammation of the renal pelvis), which causes severe pain and fever.

What does the result tell me?
This is a three-in-one test to detect the presence of white blood cells (leucocytes), proteins and nitrates in the urine. A positive result for any of these substances is shown by a change in the respective colour field on dipstick.
