Tonight, I have a question about Rulin’s urine test, what is it about
Urine tests can be used for many things such as pregnancy tests, diagnosing certain diseases, knowing treatment reactions, and drug detection. Many of the parameters that are assessed in the urine test depend on the suspicion of the examining doctor.
Maybe you mean routine urine. Routine urine test is a urine examination by performing visual / physical analysis, chemical analysis, and microscopic analysis to find out some substances in the urine, for example, byproducts of normal and abnormal metabolism, cells, cell fragments, and bacteria.
Some things that are assessed on a routine urine test are color, volume, clarity, odor, specific gravity, pH, blood or erythrocytes, leukocytes, nitrites, bilirubin, ketones, albumin, protein, and glucose. Apart from routine urine, there is also complete urine with additional tests for bacteria, creatinine, crystals, and epithelial cells.
Routine urine tests are performed by doctors to support disease diagnosis (for example, urinary tract infections), medical check-ups, and disease screening in pregnant women. In certain cases the doctor may add another examination when performing routine urine tests according to the patient's indication.
