Urea is a waste product produced by the liver as it metabolises proteins. The kidneys are responsible for removing urea from blood and excreting it via urine. Typically, normal levels of urea in urine indicate proper functioning of the kidneys and liver. However, abnormal levels may indicate underlying medical conditions.
The Urea - Spot Urine Panel is conducted to diagnose conditions associated with high or low levels of urea in urine. Some of these conditions include kidney disease, liver disease, dehydration, heart failure, and certain medications.
Symptoms of high or low levels of urea in urine vary depending on the underlying condition. Some common symptoms include:
2. Shortness of breath
3. Swelling in ankles, feet, or hands
4. Nausea or vomiting
5. Confusion or disorientation
6. Decreased urine output
7. Blood in urine
The Urea - Spot Urine Test requires a urine sample from the individual. The healthcare professional provides the individual with a sterile container to collect the urine sample. The individual needs to ensure that the container is not contaminated with any foreign substances, including soap or toilet paper.
The urine sample may be collected at any time during the day, and no fasting is required before collecting the sample. After the urine sample is collected, it is sent to the laboratory for testing. The levels of urea in urine are measured using a biochemical assay.
Treatment for high or low levels of urea in urine depends on the underlying condition. Treatment options may include medications, lifestyle changes, and dietary modifications. Individuals who receive a positive diagnosis should consult with their healthcare professional and follow their recommended treatment plan.
