At Delta IMC, we use urinalysis testing in a number of ways. It is used as preemptive screening with annual medical exams, sports or school physicals, pre-operative exams, pregnancy checkups and routine medical exams. Since many disorders, illnesses and diseases affect how your body rids itself of toxins and waste, changes in your excretory system can normally be identified through urinalysis testing. This includes the diagnosis of medical conditions, such as liver problems, diabetes, urinary tract infections, kidney disorders and other metabolic conditions. With so many disorders and diseases that go undetected during the early stages, urine tests are an important part of wellness screenings and routine examinations. Urine tests for pregnancy diagnosis and drug testing do not involve the same laboratory analysis but do require a urine sample.

Our medical providers will evaluate the urinalysis results along with any other lab tests or blood work that was ordered. If certain substances are present at above normal levels, it can be a sign of underlying conditions such as:

  • Bacterial Infections
  • Bladder Cancer
  • Blood Disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Conditions
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Kidney Damage Or Disease
  • Kidney Stones
  • Leukemia
  • Liver Damage
  • Liver Disease
  • Lupus
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Sickle Cell Anemia
  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Yeast Infections

Since you may not have symptoms of a disease, illness, condition or disorder, screenings are very important. If the results of your urinalysis testing are out of range, your primary care provider may order additional tests or screenings to aid in the diagnosis of the cause of the abnormal readings from your urine sample. In many cases, urinalysis results will provide the information needed to determine an appropriate course of intervention. Patients who have already been diagnosed with a medical condition may need adjustments to his or her treatment plan.

Delta Internal Medicine Center provides urinalysis testing in Orlando to determine the cause of changes in your health, as well as wellness screenings to support numerous types of physical examinations.
