The 10 items checked in the Home Urine Health Test:
Leukocytes: White Blood Cells produced by the body to help fight infection. Could indicate a UTI or Kidney Infection.
Nitrites: Bacteria that cause urinary tract infections (UTIs) convert nitrates into nitrites. A positive result for nitrites could indicate a UTI.
Urobilinogen: A by-product of the breakdown of Bilirubin. Smaller levels are normal, but larger levels could indicate a liver disease.
Protein: High levels of protein in a urine sample can indicate kidney disease.
pH: Checks the acidity or alkalinity of urine.
Blood: A serious UTI/Cystitis can cause blood in urine as well as other issues such as kidney stones or bladder/kidney cancer.
Specific Gravity (S.G.): Higher specific gravity could be signs of a UTI, diabetes or even dehydration. Other issues could be a kidney infection, kidney failure or heart failure.
Ketone: Ketones are produced when the body is not able extract energy from Glucose and therefore starts to burn off body fat. A high level of ketones could simply be down to dieting, not eating for prolonged periods of time (12-18 hours), or something more serious such as diabetes.
Bilirubin: A by-product of the breakdown of red blood cells. These cells should not be present in the urine and these could indicate liver disease.
Glucose: Not usually found in urine as the kidneys are able to process it and release it back into the body. Glucose in urine can indicate undiagnosed diabetes.
