    Culture and Sensitivity Urine Automated Test in Kondapur, Hyderabad

    Are you experiencing discomfort or unusual symptoms while urinating? Have you noticed changes in the colour, smell, or consistency of your urine? These symptoms could be signs of an underlying urinary tract infection or other conditions affecting your urinary system. In such cases, one of the most common tests recommended by healthcare professionals is the Culture and Sensitivity Urine Automated Test.

    The Culture and Sensitivity Urine Automated Test helps in diagnosing various urinary tract infections and determining the most effective treatment options. It involves analysing a sample of your urine to identify any bacteria or other microorganisms present and determining their susceptibility to different antibiotics. This information is crucial for prescribing the appropriate medication to treat the infection.

    To conduct the Culture and Sensitivity Urine Automated Test, a midstream clean catch urine sample is required. The laboratory will provide you with clear instructions on how to collect the sample properly to ensure accurate results. It is important to follow these instructions carefully to avoid contamination.

These symptoms can indicate urinary tract infections, kidney stones, bladder infections, or other urinary disorders. By undergoing this test, individuals can obtain a precise diagnosis and receive appropriate treatment promptly.

    faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    Frequently asked questions

    The signs and symptoms of urinary tract infection include strong, frequent urge to urinate, even after already urinated; pain or burning sensation during urination, cloudy, strong-smelling urine, and lower back pain.
    Yes, a urine culture test can detect some sexually transmitted diseases such as Chlamydia. However, this test is not the choice for sexually transmitted diseases.
    The right method to collect a urine sample is to collect midstream urine. Discard the first few drops of urine as it might contain the microorganisms present on the surface of the genitals. It is advised to clean the genitals and surrounding area before the collection of a urine sample.
    The urine culture might contain the growth of different types of bacteria if the initial stream of urine is collected for a urine sample as the bacteria present inside and outside the urinary tract are different. It is advised to clean the genital area and the skin around it before giving the sample. Discard the few drops of urine and collect midstream urine for accurate results.
    The types of urinary tract infection depend upon the part of the urinary tract which is infected. For example, if kidneys are infected, it is known as acute pyelonephritis. If bladders are infected, it is known as cystitis and if the urethra is infected, it is known as urethritis.
    The risk factors for urinary tract infection include shorter urethra in females, sexual activity, use of diaphragms for birth control, menopause, abnormalities in the urinary tract, blockages in the urinary tract, suppressed immune system, use of a urinary catheter, examination of urinary tract area, and surgery of urinary tract.
    Should I inform my doctor if I am taking any medicines?
    Yes. A urinary tract infection can detect severe infections which have the potential to  spread upwards to the kidneys (ascending infection). If infection spreads to the kidneys, (a condition called Pyelonephritis), it becomes difficult to treat, and the duration of treatment also increases. So, timely testing and treatment of UTIs is extremely important.
    No. A urine sensitivity test is targeted to finding out the bacteria responsible for UTI. Bacterias and viruses causing STDs are difficult to grow in culture, but can be detected in a different test called the Urine PCR test.
    Annual health checks are essential for preventive care. These checkups allow early detection of potential health issues, thus improving the prognosis.
