Urinalysis At Home Test Strips from Easy@Home Areta
I always wish that I didn't have to go to the doctor's office to check for a UTI, or to see how things are doing in my body. Most of the time everything is fine, and then I waste a few hours at the clinic.
With these awesome urinalysis test strips from Easy@Home Areta, I can!
I can test for a ton of different things, as they have 10 parameters, including:
Glucose, Bilirubin, Ketone, Specific Gravity, Blood, pH, Protein, Urobilinogen, Nitrite and Leukocytes in your urine.
These test strips are useful in the preliminary screening for diabetes, liver disease, hemolytic diseases, urogenital, and kidney disorders.
The package contains one bottle and the bottle contains 50 Strips, easily used within the shelf life, no waste. (The test strips are good to use for 90 days after opening).
Here is a list of what the company says these test strips can test for:
Nitrites: may be a sign of urinary tract infection or other infection.
Leukocytes: aka white blood cells. Also indicates presence of infection.
Glucose: the most common test for diabetes.
pH: measures urine acidity, associated with higher risk for kidney stones.
Protein: (albumin): tests for kidney function.
Ketones: caused by disorders of increased metabolism; also by unbalanced diets such as high protein/low carb, anorexia or fasting.
Specific gravity: evaluates the body's water balance and urine concentration.
Blood: can result from infection, injury, inflammation, kidney stones or cancer.
Bilirubin: could indicate liver or gallbladder problems such as gallstones, hepatitis, cirrhosis or tumors.
Urobilinogen: checks for liver disease.
Easy to Use:
1. Just dip the test into urine sample for 1-2 seconds and read results
2. Just compare the reagent areas on the strip and the parameter corresponding color on the container.
