Why do we check your urine?By Tokunbo Benson CNL Urgent care
We will always request a urine sample for testing at every contact (inpatient or outpatient). The test is easy to do and can aid in diagnosing bladder and kidney infections, diabetes, dehydration and preeclampsia by checking for high levels of sugars, proteins, ketones and bacteria in the urine. You will usually be asked to give a sample at each visits in a clean jar. Please ask your nurse for more information.
