Protein (Quantitative) - Urine is a diagnostic test that measures the amount of protein present in a urine sample. This test is commonly used to detect and monitor various conditions like kidney disease, diabetes, hypertension, and preeclampsia during pregnancy. The test can also be used to assess the effectiveness of treatments and to detect any recurrence of the condition.
The symptoms of conditions for which the Urine Protein- Quantitative- Spot Urine Panel is recommended vary depending on the underlying condition. Here are some symptoms associated with these conditions:
1. Kidney disease - fatigue, swelling in legs and ankles, frequent urination, blood in the urine.
2. Diabetes - frequent urination, excessive thirst, blurred vision, slow-healing wounds.
3. Hypertension - headache, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, vision problems.
4. Preeclampsia - high blood pressure, severe headaches, blurred vision, abdominal pain.
The sample procurement method for the Protein (Quantitative) - Urine test is simple and painless. A sample of urine is collected in a sterile container by the patient or a healthcare professional from a random spot urine specimen. The patient will be instructed to collect the first voided morning specimen or wait for at least two hours after the last void before collecting it.
At the lab, the technician will analyse the sample to measure the amount of protein present in the urine sample using a machine that detects the presence of proteins. The test is usually completed within 36 hours, and the results are shared via electronic medical record (EMR) or through the Apollo 24|7 app.
If an individual receives a positive result from their Protein (Quantitative) - Urine test, they may need follow-up tests to determine the underlying condition. Depending on the diagnosis, treatment options can vary from medication to lifestyle changes. It is important to seek the advice of a healthcare professional if you receive a positive result.
