A routine urinalysis (UA) can reveal diseases that have gone unnoticed because they do not produce striking signs or symptoms. Examples include diabetes, various forms of kidney disease, and chronic urinary tract infections.

The UA involves a number of tests to detect and measure various compounds that pass through the urine. A routine urinalysis consists of three distinct testing phases:

  1. Physical Examination — evaluates urine color, clarity, and concentration.
  2. Chemical Examination — tests chemically for 9 substances that provide valuable information about health and disease.
  3. A Microscopic Examination if needed — identifies and counts the type of cells, casts, crystals, and other components (bacteria, mucus) that can be present in urine.

Please Note: Certain medicines change the color of urine … but that is not a sign of disease. Your doctor may tell you to stop taking medicines that can affect test results. Medicines that can change urine color include:

  • Chloroquine
  • Iron supplements
  • Levodopa
  • Nitrofurantoin
  • Phenazopyridine
  • Phenothiazines
  • Phenytoin
  • Riboflavin
  • Triamterene

You can obtain a routine urinalysis with or without fasting. This test is not included in any other Life Extension® urine panels.
