    Frequently asked questions

    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 initial stream of urine and collect mid-stream urine for accurate results.
    The symptoms of ketoacidosis are abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, confusion, trouble breathing, and feeling extremely sleepy.
    The people that are at risk of ketoacidosis include those who experience chronic vomiting and/or diarrhea, have a digestive disorder, perform strenuous exercises, are on a low-carbohydrate diet, have an eating disorder, are diabetic, or are pregnant.
    Diabetes occurs when the levels of blood glucose (sugar) become too high. Blood glucose is the main source of energy and is derived from the food which is consumed. Insulin is a hormone that is produced by the pancreas. Its function is to help derive glucose from food and deliver it to cells so that it can be used for energy. When the body doesn't produce enough insulin or is not able to use the insulin well, the glucose levels rise due to abnormal regulation of insulin in the body which leads to diabetes.
    Diabetes affects major organs of the body which include the heart, blood vessels, nerves, eyes, and kidneys. The blood glucose levels that are uncontrolled can cause damage to these organs and create complications if the blood glucose levels are not controlled. The complications can even cause disability in the body and can be life-threatening as well.
