    Order Test Online


    The urine is a by-product of the metabolism. Expelled from the kidneys it flows through the urinary bladder and is excreted through the urethra and the process is called urination. While urine is defined as human waste it can tell us a lot about our body. Urine contains many fluids and filtrates that come out of your body and hence can tell you what’s going on inside your body. A urine test is also known as ‘Urinalysis’ or ‘Urine Routine’.

    What is Urine Routine?

    Urine routine is a simple urine test done to diagnose various health issues. The test is performed by collecting a urine sample from the patient.

    When do doctors order a urine routine?

    Urine routine or urine test is done when an individual is doing a routine body check, or when admitted to the hospital, or before undergoing a surgery or when a woman has a pregnancy check-up.

    A urine routine is ordered when there are symptoms of a urinary tract infection or kidney disease in the patient. Urine routine can also be ordered when the patient has back pain, abdominal pain, frequent urination or painful urination and blood in the urine. It can also be done to check the treatment of conditions like kidney stones, diabetes, hypertension, and other kidney and liver diseases.

    How do I prepare for the test?

    The Urine Routine test is usually done in the morning. However, if you are taking some medications you need to inform your doctor about it as certain medicines can colour your urine. Also, if you are taking diuretics you need to consult with your doctor before the test.

    Avoid eating foods that can colour your urine like beets and blackberries before the test.

    Avoid exertion and do not exercise too hard before the test.

    If you are menstruating or if you are close to your period you should inform your doctor about it.

    What do the test results mean?
