  • odor
  • Everything I have read about Maple Syrup Urine Disease refers to it as a pediatric disease characterized by the unique odor of the urine. (medhelp.org)
  • blood in ur
  • Blood in urine (pee) isn't usually caused by anything serious but you must get it checked out by a GP. (www.nhs.uk)
  • Blood in urine must be checked out because it can be a sign of cancer. (www.nhs.uk)
  • urinary
  • A urinalysis is usually ordered when a doctor suspects that a child has a urinary tract infection (UTI) or a health problem that can cause an abnormality in the urine. (kidshealth.org)
  • To avoid this, the skin surrounding the urinary opening has to be cleaned and rinsed immediately before the urine is collected. (kidshealth.org)
  • hour urine
  • Transfer 4 mL aliquot from the well-mixed 24-hour urine collection to an ARUP Transport Tube with 20 mg Sulfamic Acid (ARUP supply #48098) Record total volume and collection time interval on transport tube and test request form. (nationwidechildrens.org)
  • Sometimes the 24-hour urine metanephrines test will be done in conjunction with plasma free metanephrines testing and/or followed by catecholamines testing to help decide if a catecholamine-secreting tumor is present. (labtestsonline.org)
  • Human Urine
  • A team of ecological engineers at the University of Kalyani, India, discovered that plankton fed on a diet of ground water and human urine did better than those that were given alternate nitrogen-rich meals. (treehugger.com)
  • Those that were reared on human urine started reproducing at least four days earlier, lived longer and produced more offspring than the rest. (treehugger.com)
  • Human urine is a stable liquid and contains valuable nutrients. (treehugger.com)
  • I see no reason why it couldn't be used for this purpose if it provides a suitable chemical environment for the zooplankton to grow," said Stephen Smith, an environmental biochemist at Imperial College London.Why makes human urine such an effective fertilizer? (treehugger.com)
  • Not surprisingly, human urine is much cheaper to "produce" and is more eco-friendly than chemical fertilizers, whose frequent use often results in severe bouts of eutrophication. (treehugger.com)
  • For many of the same reasons that it has shown itself to be such an effective fertilizer for zooplankton, human urine also has tremendous potential as an agricultural fertilizer, though worries about disease transfer and the presence of antibiotics and hormones may hinder its widespread use. (treehugger.com)
  • We have not yet encountered any diseases or abnormalities in the zooplankton grown in tanks with human urine, but we are looking for hormone residues and antibiotics, just to be sure" he said. (treehugger.com)
  • feces
  • Through the separate collection of feces and urine without any flush water, many advantages can be realized, such as odor-free operation and pathogen reduction by drying. (wikipedia.org)
  • While dried feces and urine harvested from UDDTs can be and routinely are used in agriculture (respectively, as a soil amender and nutrient-rich fertilizer-this practice being known as reuse of excreta in agriculture), many UDDTs installations do not make use of any sort of recovery scheme. (wikipedia.org)
  • Bara Bihari Jana and his colleagues tried growing several Moina micrura (a zooplankton species commonly fed to hatchling fish in fisheries) stocks in a variety of different feces/urine cocktails, including cow urine and dung and poultry droppings. (treehugger.com)
  • albumin
  • Urine albumin is a continuous risk factor. (nih.gov)
  • However, the 300 mg/g cut-off merely represents a rough correlation with the lower limit of sensitivity of the traditional urine dipstick for albumin. (nih.gov)
  • Urine albumin excretion is an early predictor of cardiovascular disease morbidity and mortality and renal function loss. (nih.gov)
  • The NKDEP Laboratory Working Group , in collaboration with the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine, has undertaken an effort to standardize the laboratory assessment of urine albumin and the reporting of results to clinicians. (nih.gov)
  • protein
  • So when urine contains glucose, too much protein, or has other irregularities, it can be a sign of a health problem. (kidshealth.org)
  • Sometimes, when the urine contains white blood cells or protein, or the test results seem abnormal for another reason, it's because of how or when the urine was collected. (kidshealth.org)
  • For example, a dehydrated child may have concentrated (darker) urine or a small amount of protein in the urine. (kidshealth.org)
  • Depending on the amount of protein or other cells in the urine, the doctor may repeat the urine test at another time, just to make sure that everything is back to normal. (kidshealth.org)
  • When I've googled it, many things come up about being a sign of protein in the urine. (thebody.com)
  • Trace blood/protein in urine. (medhelp.org)
  • Although strong-smelling urine is not a side effect that is usually mentioned in connection with Roaccutane, it can cause excess production of protein in the urine, which could conceivably cause this symptom. (netdoctor.co.uk)
  • symptoms
  • In the absence of other symptoms, such as pain with urination, cloudy or dark urine color, or unusual frequency of urination, there is usually little reason for concern. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • Women taking supplements to help ease menopause or pre-menopause symptoms may notice a change in urine because of the amount of B-complex in their vitamins. (ehow.co.uk)
  • darker
  • Your urine should be pale coloured or clear rather than dark yellow or orange and as a general rule the darker the urine the more dehydrated you are. (netdoctor.co.uk)
  • concentration
  • Urine is generally yellow and relatively clear, but each time a person urinates, the color, quantity, concentration, and content of the urine will be slightly different because of varying constituents. (labtestsonline.org)
  • NASA
  • The result is what NASA calls a "purified urine distillate," but it's not yet clean enough for astronauts to drink. (technologyreview.com)
  • NASA continues the "long-standing tradition" of collecting urine from its workers in an effort to design better space toilets. (buzzfeed.com)
  • sample
  • Next, the doctor or laboratory technologist also usually examines the same urine sample under a microscope to check for other substances that indicate different conditions. (kidshealth.org)
  • Getting a urine sample. (kidshealth.org)
  • If the minimum of 10 mLs of urine is not possible from one sample, it is acceptable to pool samples. (nationwidechildrens.org)
  • Pregnant
  • Yeah, like would pregnant women's urine be more powerful, or some health nut dude who dosed up on B vitamins? (neatorama.com)
  • detect
  • Urine metanephrines testing is used to help detect or rule out the presence of a rare tumor called a pheochromocytomas or a paraganglioma that releases excess metanephrines. (labtestsonline.org)
  • Since pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas produce these hormones in excess, measuring the amount in the blood and/or urine may help detect the tumor. (labtestsonline.org)
  • normal
  • Or, is foamy/bubbly urine fairly normal and could just be due to a strong flow causing air? (thebody.com)
  • Normal urine levels of metanephrine and normetanephrine mean it is unlikely that the person tested has a catecholamine-secreting tumor. (labtestsonline.org)
