Urinalysis - an important diagnostic tool

 

Urinalysis has always been an important diagnostic tool in medicine. 

Even today, urine is still a key health barometer for many diseases, mainly urinary tract infections, kidney disease and diabetes.1 The analysis of urine can reveal serious diseases that show no symptoms in their early stages but are treatable.2 These diseases can cause severe damage if they remain undetected.

Urine test strips are a crucial diagnostic tool which are easy to use and yielding quick, reliable information on pathological changes in the urine. Their diagnostic significance lies primarily in first-line diagnosis, screening during routine or preventive examinations, and treatment monitoring.3
