Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) Test

$ 253.00

Basics:

A urinary infection is an inflammation of the urinary tract, mostly caused by bacteria, and primarily intestinal bacteria. The urinary tract includes the urethra, the bladder, the ureter and the kidneys.Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) are 50 times more common in women and conditions can range from cystitis (a mild but disturbing inflammation that is limited to the bladder) to severe infections of the kidneys.

It is mostly women who suffer from urinary infections, since the short urethra favours the penetration of germs. Around 11% of women get a urinary infection every year. However, elderly males are also affected if they have an enlarged prostate which is obstructing the flow of urine.

In healthy people, urine is sterile (i.e. it does not contain any micro-organisms). One of the best ways to keep your urinary tract sterile is to empty your bladder completely at regular intervals. Generally, an infection starts in the urethra and may then spread into the upper urinary tract as far as the kidneys.

    Please note:
    It is recommended that, for the test, a sample of urine be taken first thing in the morning, since early-morning urine is the most concentrated. The urine used for the test should not come into contact with water from the toilet or any disinfectant or cleaning substances.
    For women only: The test should not be performed during or for three days after your menstrual period. The urine sample should not be contaminated with vaginal fluids since this may produce a misleading result.

    IS THERE A CERTAIN TIME OF DAY WHEN I SHOULD CARRY OUT THE TEST?
    It is recommended that, you test first thing in the morning, since early-morning urine is the most concentrated. Women should not perform the test during or for three days after your menstrual period. The urine sample should not be contaminated with vaginal fluids since this may produce a misleading result.

    IF I DIPPED THE STRIP IN URINE FOR MORE THAN A SECOND WILL THIS AFFECT THE RESULT?
    If you left the strip in the urine for 2-3 seconds this will not affect the result but if left for more than 5 seconds the results could be inaccurate.
    Why should I use a fresh sample for this test?
    Bilirubin and Urobilinogen are sensitive to light and can decompose if left for a long time. Accordingly, the results may not reflect the actual concentration of these two compounds in the urine sample since they would be partly decomposed.
