Description

The general analysis of urine consists of the evaluation of physical and chemical properties ( color, specific gravity, pH, transparency, the presence of red blood cells, white blood cells, glucose, urobilinogen, ketones, proteins, nitrites, ascorbic acid) and the examination of the sediment ( formed elements of urine: crystals, rollers, bacteria, yeast, epithelia, mucus strands).
Urinalysis is an important adjunct to blood tests, especially in diseases of the urinary system and in case of kidney involvement in the course of systemic diseases.
