Urine Test Strips
Keep track of your health in between hair analysis retests with the URS-14 Urine Test Strips that provide 14-in-1 results.
These are the perfect addition to a Nutritional Balancing program. You can become more aware of your health by learning what the presence of different components in urine represent. With fourteen different results provided in this quick process, it has never been easier to monitor important health parameters.
How to Use:
1. Put strip in urine mid-stream for 1-2 seconds.
2. Shake to remove excess liquid, then wait 15 seconds.
3. Compare color of test strip to the color chart on the bottle.
The test strips will show results for the following:
Ketone: High ketone levels in urine could be a sign of diabetes, or signal diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) in those who already have it. People with type 1 or 2 diabetes are typically tested for ketone in their urine. Those with diabetes and high levels of ketone are not getting the necessary insulin to transport sugar from the blood to cells for energy. This can lead to hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar. This in turn can result in further complications, such as nerve damage, stroke, heart disease, and vision problems, if it is not taken care of. Slightly high levels could mean that a person with diabetes has missed an insulin shot. They should take it as soon as possible, then test again in a few hours.
Aside from diabetes, you may also have ketone in your urine due to pregnancy, vigorous exercise, chronic vomiting or diarrhea, pneumonia, infection, heart attack, high fever, infection, burns, hyperthyroidism, low carb diet, alcohol abuse, eating disorder, fasting, stroke, sepsis, and/or nursing without adequate nutrition.
Bilirubin: High bilirubin levels in urine may represent liver damage or a liver condition, such as hepatitis, trouble with liver function, or blockage in the structures that transport bile from the liver.
Leukocytes: High leukocytes levels in urine can indicate inflammation in the urinary tract or kidneys. Leukocyte esterase is an enzyme found in white blood cells, and a few white blood cells are normally present in urine with a negative test result. A significant increase in white blood cells will generate a positive test result. The most common cause for leukocyturia, or white blood cells in urine, is a bacterial urinary tract infection, such as a kidney or bladder infection. Someone who is pregnant is more likely to develop a problem, such as a urinary tract infection (UTI). Kidney stones, a pelvic tumor, or some kind of blockage in the urinary tract may be additional causes for leukocytes in urine.
Nitrite: High nitrite levels in urine can occur due to a urinary tract infection (UTI), as the result of bacteria in the urinary tract. It is possible to have a UTI without high nitrite levels showing on a urine test, because bacteria do not always change nitrates into nitrites.
Urobilinogen: High urobiliongen levels in urine may imply liver conditions, such a viral hepatitis, cirrhosis, damage from toxic substances, or conditions related to hemolytic anemia. Low urobiliongen levels or absence of it in the urine of someone with urine bilirubin and/or liver dysfunction may represent the presence of hepatic of biliary obstruction.
Protein: High levels of protein in urine can mean there is a kidney problem. A person may suffer from proteinuria, which can be temporary or persistent, due to exercise, fever, stress, cold exposure, or aspirin therapy. Low levels or small increases of protein in the urine are not a cause for concern.
Creatinine: Creatinine levels vary based upon age, gender, and health history. Higher levels in the urine may reveal impaired kidney function or kidney disease.
Calcium: High levels of calcium in urine can show hyperparathyroidism, milk-alkali syndrome, idiopathic hypercalciuria, sarcoidosis, renal tubular acidosis, vitamin D intoxication, use of loop diuretics, or kidney failure. Abnormally low calcium in the urine may signal malabsorption disorders, vitamin D deficiency, hypoparathyroidism, or use of thiazide diuretics.
pH: The pH level represents how much acid is in the urine. Urine is typically somewhat acidic, and the kidneys have a critical job in maintaining the body's acid-base balance. Any condition that produces acids or bases, or the ingestion of acidic or basic foods, can have a direct effect on the urine's pH. Abnormal levels could suggest kidney or urinary tract disorder. Some substances dissolved in urine will form crystals when the urine is acidic, while others do so when the urine is basic. The higher a pH level is above 7, the more basic the urine is, and the lower it is below 7, the more acidic the urine is. If crystals form at the same time urine is produced in the kidneys, a kidney stone may develop.
Blood: Blood in the urine can specify kidney damage or infection, kidney or bladder stones, kidney or bladder cancer, or a blood disorder. Although blood in the urine is not normal, it is also not uncommon and not necessarily cause for concern. Medications or vigorous exercise could cause there to be blood in urine. Additional testing is recommended.
Glucose: High levels of glucose in urine may suggest an exceptionally high level of glucose in the blood. There could also be a reduction in the renal threshold: when blood glucose levels are at a certain concentration, the kidneys remove glucose into the urine to lower blood concentrations. If the threshold concentration is reduced, glucose will enter the urine sooner at a lower blood glucose concentration. Glucose in the urine may also be due to hormonal disorders, liver disease, pregnancy, or medications.
Specific Gravity: This is a measure of urine concentration; it simply reveals how concentrated the urine is. The measure compares the amount of substances in urine with the amount of pure water. For example, the presence of no substances would be 1.000, which is the same as pure water. Although a 1.000 reading is not possible, a person who excessively drinks water over a short period of time, or receives an IV infusion of large volumes of fluid, may have specific gravity that is close to pure water. High levels of specific gravity in urine indicate dehydration. It means there are extra substances, which could be glucose, protein, bilirubin, red blood cells, white blood cells, crystals, or bacteria, and can be a sign of kidney disease, infection, and/or brain injuries.
Microalbumin: High levels of microalbumin can be a sign of early or advanced kidney disease. It may also be related to blood in the urine, medications, fever, or vigorous exercise.
Ascorbate: High levels of ascorbate, or Vitamin C, in urine is common if the body is consuming enough. However, Vitamin C is a powerful reducing agent contained in various foods at high amounts, so its presence in urine can often cause significant interference and lead to false negative results. An ascorbate indicator on a urine test helps reduce the risk of incorrect results in regards to conditions related to glucose or blood.
