    Myoglobulin is a protein that is produced by the heart and skeletal muscles. The protein aids the transportation of oxygen to the muscles, enabling them to function properly. In case of muscle damage, myoglobulin is released into the bloodstream and excreted through urine.

    It is essential to conduct a myoglobulin test to analyse the amount of protein in your urine. If your muscles are healthy, myoglobulin will stay in your muscle tissues. However, if you face a muscle injury, the protein’s concentration will increase in your bloodstream.

    Doctors may conduct the Myoglobulin-Urine-Random test to determine the amount of myoglobulin protein in your urine. If the levels are too high, it may affect the functioning of your kidneys and also lead to kidney failure. The myoglobulin test helps detect any underlying kidney conditions.

    You may have to undergo a urine test if your physician diagnoses that you have suffered a muscle injury. The symptoms might vary according to the cause of your muscle injury. Below are some of the symptoms you need to observe.

    • Muscle pain, cramps or stiffness 
    • Vomiting and nausea 
    • High fever 
    • Stomach pain 
    • Fast heart rate 
    • Extreme weakness 
    • Reddish or dark brown urine

    The Myoglobulin-Urine-Random test helps identify other complicated conditions like rhabdomyolysis. This medical condition can lead to kidney failure. Moreover, it can help doctors detect internal skeletal muscle injuries.  As myoglobulin is toxic to your kidneys, the Myoglobulin-Urine-Random test allows doctors to evaluate any risks of kidney damage

    The Urine Glucose (Random) test analyses the amount of glucose present in the urine. If your urine has high glucose levels, it might mean that you have diabetes.

    The doctor might conduct a blood glucose test along with the Urine Glucose (Random) test to diagnose diabetes and kidney diseases. It can also help in diagnosing gestational diabetes during pregnancy. Your physician might recommend these tests if you face the following conditions:

    • Increased hunger and thirst 
    • Frequent urination 
    • Extreme fatigue 
    • Abnormal weight loss

    The Myoglobulin-Urine-Random test detects extreme muscle injury caused by muscular dystrophy or trauma. Below are some significant causes of muscle damage:

    • Infections 
    • Muscle injuries from an accident 
    • Family history of muscle damage or associated complications 
    • Strenuous exercise
