Feline Urine Acidification with Sodium Bisulfate Pet™ Formation of struvite crystals in the lower urinary tract is a common cause of lower urinary tract diseases. In some cases, complete obstruction occurs. Urine acidification can dissolve existing crystals and prevent the formation of new crystals. A urine pH of 6.0 to 6.5 is an acceptable range to prevent the formation of crystals. Studies prove that sodium bisulfate significantly lowers feline urine pH.14 The mode by which it affects urine pH is twofold. The cation-anion balance of the diet affects urine pH of healthy cats.2 The more negative the balance, the greater the acidifying potential of the diet. Sodium bisulfate has a cation-anion balance of -1 which causes the urine to be acidified. Compounds that result in the absorption of hydrogen ions produce acidic urine.6 The addition of sodium bisulfate to the diet results in the absorption of hydrogen ions therefore lowering urine pH.

Objective: To review the first year of a monthly urine cytology screening service, introduced to identify renal transplant patients at risk of polyoma virus nephropathy (PVN), at an early, potentially treatable, stage.. Methods and results: Monthly urine samples (n = 392) were received from 97/108 transplant recipients in 2005. Of 56 patients with follow-up ,6 months, 20% and 9% had significant (,10 decoy cells/cytospin) and non-significant positive cytology, respectively. The first positive urine samples occurred most commonly in the second and third month post-transplantation and patients with significantly positive samples had higher 3-month and 6-month serum creatinine levels than patients with negative urine cytology (p,0.01). Four patients with positive urine cytology had a subsequent positive plasma BK virus PCR; 3/97 patients had biopsy-proven PVN, all in the third month, 1-6 weeks after first positive urine samples.. Conclusions: Significant PV viruria is common following renal ...
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a widespread infectious disease in humans. Urine culture, a huge workload in the microbiology laboratory, is still the standard diagnostic test for UTI, but most of the cultures are negative. A reliable screening method could reduce unnecessary cultures and quicken reporting of negative results. We evaluated the usefulness of a flow cytometry (FC) screening method in the prediction of positive urine culture to reduce the number of urine cultures. The urine specimens sent to the laboratory for culture were tested with the flow cytometer Accuri C6. FC bacterial counts were compared to standard urine culture results to assess the best cut-off values. Two hundred nine urine samples were included, of which 79 (37.8 %) were culture positive. On comparing the culture and the FC data in the ROC curve, the FC bacterial counts of ≥106 bacteria/mL provided a reliable screening for bacteriuria with a sensitivity and specificity of 99 and 58 %, respectively. All negative FC results
The cytologic examination of voided urine and bladder washings was done in 220 patients with bladder tumors from January, 1986 to June, 1989. Sixty hundred and thirty six specimens including 415 voided urine specimens and 221 bladder washings were examined. Among those, 160 paired specimens of both voided urine and bladder washings were taken from one patient on the same day. Specimens were stained by the Papanicolaou method, and they were interpreted as being negative when the cytologic examination was normal or showed benign atypia and positive when malignant cells were suspected or clearly evident. Sensitivity and specificity of the cytologic examination were 41.8%, 91.9% as a whole, and 34,6%, 96.6% in voided urine and 54.4%, 82.4% in bladder washings. The sensitivity of voided urine and bladder washings was increased as the tumor size, number, grade and stage were increased. A positive urine cytology without a visible tumor in voided urine was seen in 5 cases and the tumor recurred in all 3 ...

Mandai, M.D., is one of the trailblazers in the use of the transmission electron microscope in the study of the urinary sediment. In this book, he reviews his extensive efforts to tie his vast clinical expe rience to his elegant basic research with the electron microscope.. The pictures are comprehensive, and the clinical correlates are nicely outlined in tables and text. It may astonish some readers that a book for fellows and clinical nephrol ogists has been written on the use of the transmission electron microscope in the study of urine.. Some may view this as a sophisticated research instrument. I, however, applaud the effort. So many discoveries and advances in basic science lie unutilized because clinicians are not aware of the tools ...
PURPOSE To study the phenomenon of positive urine cytology in patients with lung cancer in the absence of obvious urothelial metastases. PATIENTS AND METHODS 150 patients with small (SCLC) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) of all stages and 3 control groups were prospectively studied. Immunocytochemical study (cytokeratins 7-20, TTF1) in all positive urine specimens and chemokine profile (CXCR4, CCL21) study of the primary tumor in selected positive patients was performed. In experimental study, C57Bl/6 BALB/C mice injected with LLC lung and 4T1 mammary cancer cells were used for the detection of positive urine cytology. RESULTS 11% of patients with NSCLC, 7% of patients with SCLC and none of the control group had positive urine cytology. In NSCLC, metastatic disease and high tumor burden positively correlated (p=0.01 and 0.03 respectively) with the phenomenon. In SCLC, correlation with extensive disease and multiple metastatic sites (p=0.02 and 0.04 respectively) was found. No correlation was

In either animals or humans, urine exits the body in acid form with a pH around 5 and or 6. Before leaving the body the urine is sterile, and has no damaging bacteria, pathogens, and or microorganisms. However, this is not the case if the animal has a bladder infection or urinary infection.. In mammals uric acid is the number one ingredient in the urine. Urochrome, (a yellow pigment) and cholesterol (also known as lipids), and urea are other main ingredients found in urine. The specific ingredients in urine including dog urine, will actually vary, and is dependent on diet and health, along with other factors. When urine is leaving the body it begins a process of significant changes. It picks up bacteria from the urethra and also from the skin. It also comes in contact with other microorganisms from sources such as carpeting and other surfaces.. These bacteria can now flourish. The warm acidic conditions of the urine are ideal for the bacteria to grow. The uric acid is broken down and becomes ...
Although we only detected GSTP1 methylation in under a third of voided urine samples, we have clearly demonstrated that molecular diagnosis of prostate neoplasia in urine is feasible. Moreover, albeit in a limited study, we observed absolute specificity, because we did not find any GSTP1 hypermethylation in the urine DNA from the six patients with unmethylated GSTP1 tumor DNA. We detected GSTP1 hypermethylation in a minority of paired urine, and this level of sensitivity can likely be improved upon. Goessl et al. (20) reported a higher percentage of positive cases with a fluorescence-based conventional PCR technique. It is possible that prostatic massage and the higher number of cycles used in their study yielded more positive urine DNAs, but specificity is known to decrease in MSP, as in other PCR protocols, with increased cycle number (21) . Indeed, in the study by Goessl et al. (20) , some urine samples were positive, yet the primary tumor was not found to harbor GSTP1 hypermethylation. ...

If the urine was collected using good cleaning prior to urination, then it is not normal. If a woman does not use a good clean catch technique then the urine can be contaminated from surrounding secretions. There being more epithelial cells than blood cells indicates that this was most likely a contaminated urine specimen. The urine test should be repeated using good clean catch technique.

En route to jail, Charles Weatherford told Indiana cops that he sometimes keeps a bowl of urine on his balcony for self defense.
Symptoms such as dark yellow urine the first thing in the morning often causes one to panic into thinking that s/he might be suffering from a urine infection or UTI. Normal urine is colorless and if you have been drinking adequate quantities of water, you should not see dark urine at any point of the day. Needless to say, there are many reasons that could cause urine to turn dark yellow in color. Certain medications such as multivitamin-mineral supplements or even food dyes often get into the urine to cause a darkish color. However, if you also experience several other symptoms such as fever, pain, the frequent urge to go to the bathroom etc along with the dark yellow urine, you should not waste any time in seeing the doctor. ...
Thanks for asking. Concrete is porous so what you have is a situation where dog urine has been soaking into the porous surface (it sounds like continuously) for a couple years. At least some of the products you have used are working. The enzymes work by digesting the urine residue. The reason you keep them wet its two-fold. One: They have to be wet to be active. When they dry they do nothing. Two: To get them to soak into the concrete far enough to reach the urine, which would be in pretty deep. Bleach uses oxygen to break down the urine. It will work also if it can reach the urine in enough concentration and for a long enough time to work (which for oxygen is fast). Washing is good and it will remove the urine it can get to. You do need to be careful with power washing though because it can drive the urine even deeper into the concrete depending on how you do it. Neutralizer you asked about also has to come in contact with the urine to change the molecules. So your challenge is to get one of ...

Urine Flow Test What is a urine flow test? A urine flow test calculates the speed of urine flow over time. It may be used to check how the bladder and sphincter are working. The bladder is part of the urinary tract. Its a hollow muscular organ that relaxes and expands to store urine. It then contracts and flattens to empty urine through the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the body (urethra). The sphincter muscle is a circular muscle. It closes tightly, like a rubber band, around the bla...
Which journal was the experiment published in? We need to see the details of the experimental procedure. Given the obvious anatomical differences, the claimed result may reveal nothing more than that it is harder to obtain a urine sample uncontaminated by fecal bacteria from a female infant than from a male infant (especially if you dont even bother trying). In the absence of bladder infections, urine is supposed to be quite sterile, and I cant see what effect gender could possibly have on this. I would also like to read the grant proposal for this project ...

A urine flow test calculates the speed of urine flow over time. It may be used to check how the bladder and sphincter are working. For this test, you will urinate into a special funnel that is connected to a measuring instrument. The instrument calculates the amount of urine, rate of flow in seconds, and the length of time until all urine has been passed. This information helps evaluate how well the lower urinary tract is working. It also helps figure out if there is a blockage of normal urine outflow.

The 3rd step in a urine culture stewardship program--strategize initiatives and examples of appropriate & inappropriate use of urine cultures.
Urine tests are often offered during pregnancy. An initial dipstick test may signal that further investigation is needed, including for the presence of infection. At this point, a sample of urine may be sent off to the laboratory for culture.. Group B Strep may be found in a urine sample (it cannot be detected by a dipstick test). When cultured from a urine sample, depending on the level of bacteria found and whether the woman has symptoms, it may be that the woman has a group B Strep urinary tract infection (UTI) which will need treating with antibiotic tablets.. A negative urine test only means that group B Strep has not been found in the urine. It does not mean that group B Strep is not present in the vagina or rectum, which is where the large majority of the group B Strep bacteria is found. ...
Pet urine on grass can cause patches of brown, burned-looking sod, as the roots are damaged by the salts, uric acid or nitrogen content of the urine. Studies indicate the amount of urine, rather than the type (a cats urine is chemically stronger) is what has the most effect on the lawn. Although a dog typically can produce a greater volume of urine, cats using your yard regularly as a litter box can also cause damage that will require some work to repair. ...

Catheterized specimen urine culture is a laboratory test that looks for germs in a urine sample. Alternative Names: Culture - urine - catheterized specimen.
Physicians suspect that UTI exists based on the symptoms. A routine urine examination shows abnormalities like pus cells or blood in the urine. A culture can be done to determine the organism responsible so that the appropriate antibiotic can be administered.. Untreated patients of UTI can sometimes recover spontaneously without treatment in a few months. But the infection can also enter the blood stream, causing potentially fatal septicaemia. The kidneys may become scarred, too. This leads to high blood pressure and kidney failure. During pregnancy, recurrent or chronic UTI or asymptomatic UTI compromises the placental blood supply. This affects the babys nutrition, leading to low birth weight and sometimes causing the mother to go into premature labour.. There are several regimens for treating UTI. Depending on the organism and antibiotic, in adult women a three-day course is usually sufficient for mild infection. In most cases and in the case of men, however, a 7-10 or 14-day course is ...

The knowledge of the composition of normal human urine was markedly advanced in 2013 by the publication of the human urine metabolome . This was the first systematic study, using state-of-the-art analytic techniques, to define the chemical constituents of normal urine. As explicitly stated by the authors, this list of constituents is not expected to be complete, since as analytic techniques improve it is likely additional, chemical species will be discovered. Therefore an online database has been created for researchers to share future researches (http://www.urinemetabolome.ca/).. Currently ~3100 chemicals have been characterized in urine. This list does not include renally-excreted drugs or plant-derived food chemicals, the inclusion of which could considerably elongate the tally of known substances.. The main substances, other than water and simple sugars, include urea (via the breakdown of amino acids), salts (sodium, potassium and chloride), creatinine, ammonia, organic acids, pigments ...

Let us study the various causes of urine infection in detail.. Every human being has a urinary tract system that is capable of making, storing and expelling urine as required. The system is highly complicated and intricate and used on a daily basis. Urine is normally sterile (which means that there is no bacteria present in it) but it does contain salts, fluids and waste products. Even if bacteria do enter the urine system for some reason, the bodys immune system is capable of removing it without difficulty. In case of UTI, the immune system fails to remove the bacteria leading to infection and urine problems. Based on the exact causes of urine infection, the age, gender as well as the overall health of the individuals, different problems arise due to such bacterial infection.. ...
When it comes to your body, there are many different conditions and symptoms that can cause concern. One of the most alarming is finding blood in your urine as this often leads a person to believe that they have some type of cancer.. However, cancer is only one of many different potential causes for blood to be in your urine, and in fact, cancer is not even the most common cause. There are several reasons that you may have blood in your urine. The condition of having blood in your urine is called hematuria and it is a common symptom for many different conditions. For this reason, while it can be alarming to find blood in your urine, your thoughts should not immediately jump to cancer. If you do find blood in your urine, it could be one of these 15 conditions.

While colorless or clear urine indicates that you are well hydrated. Although clear urine color can also be caused by the consumption of drugs that specifically excrete urine ...
Urine Culture Testing Algorithm. for Adult and Pediatric ED and Inpatient Units. In order to reduce the risk of false positive/contaminated urine cultures and to help better guide clinicians in the interpretation of positive urine cultures, VUMC has implemented a standardized urine culture testing process (known as U/A with reflexive culture) as part of a multi-part program to reduce variability around urine cultures. This program also includes guidance on the indications for urine culture ordering that will be presented on order entry, standardized specimen collection protocols, and tracking of urine culture contamination rates.. For the U/A with reflexive culture process, a U/A will be sent with every culture specimen order. Clinicians will be asked on order entry if the patient has a recognized condition that could either impact the U/A interpretation or where national guidelines recommend treating positive cultures even in the absence of positive U/A results. These are 1) pregnant patients, ...
Urinalysis is an integral part of rutine laboratory work. Qualitative urinalysis includes visual inspection of urine, chemical and urinary sediment examination. European Urinalysis Guidelines were given by the European Confederation of Laboratory Medicine for better standardization of urinalysis. According to the guidelines a defined volume of urine, between 5 - 12 mL, should be centrifuged at 400 g for 5 min in a conical tube. Supernatant should be removed with an adjusted vacuum tool, supravitally stained and examinated under microscope. The aim of this research was to determine do the type of the tube and the method of removal of supernatant have an effect on urinary sediment findings and is the volume of 5 mL of urine enough for accurate urinary sediment analysis. The research was conducted in KBC Sestre Milosrdnice, in the Department of Chemistry. 110 samples were collected and each one was visually and chemically examined. 47 samples were used for the comparison of round bottom and conical ...

A urine protein test is a diagnostic procedure to detect the content of protein in a persons urine like Urobilinogen in urine cloudy or milky urine. The test is primarily used in the diagnosis of kidney damage and kidney diseases.. It is also called the 24-Hour Urine Protein test or the Urine Protein to Creatinine Ratio (UPCR) test. When referring to specific protein detection, it is called a Proteinuria test or a Microalbuminuria test. Urine samples can be random or collected over a period of time (every 4 hours or for 24 hours).. Detecting traces of proteins in urine excretion is a sign that something is wrong with the kidney or the liver, the organs that filter waste products and flush them out of the body. Proteins are building blocks of the body and ideally absorbed 100%. As such, when a protein passes out of the body through urine, it is a sign of a kidney having problems by not being able to hold back the proteins.. Urine protein tests will determine albuminuria, the initial stage of ...

Owners of even the best-trained pets will occasionally encounter pet urine accidents and leave urine stains on carpet. Often, the urine is not discovered until long after the accident. The types of damage from pet urine can be diverse and are dependent upon the makeup of the urine. Urine content will change over the pets life because of the pets diet, medications, age, health, sex, and reproductive cycles. Because of these variations, some urine stains may not be removable.. To treat urine spot damaged areas, blot damp areas as soon as the urine is detected with plain white paper toweling. Apply a solution of 1/4 teaspoon of a liquid dishwashing detergent (nonbleach and non-lanolin) with one cup of lukewarm water, by saturating paper towels and blotting. Do not use automatic dishwashing detergent or laundry detergent. Then, absorb the moisture with a paper towel, rinse with warm water and repeat the application of detergent. Continue rinsing and blotting with the detergent solution and water ...
If symptoms are suggestive of UTI, your doctor may ask for various tests for confirmation of diagnosis and for guidance of appropriate treatment. Routine urine analysis: your doctor may ask for routine lab test for urine analysis to ascertain if there are red blood cells, white blood cells or bacteria in urine, which are indicative of infection and UTI. It is important to remember that urine should be collected properly for urine analysis, because collection of urine in wrong way may give wrong or false positive result, which may lead to wrong treatment. For collection of urine (for urine analysis), collect a sample collection sterile bottle from the lab. The first morning urine (immediately after getting up in the morning urine should be collected) sample should be collected. Collect mid-stream urine sample. For this, allow some urine to pass and then collect the urine in adequate volume (as instructed by the lab from where you collected the sample bottle) before you finish urination. If the first

A container for liquid medical specimens such as urine specimens includes a container with a wide mouth opening for facilitating deposition of a urine sample, a removable cap for closing the mouth opening and an impermeable sheet liner under the cap for making a fluid tight seal with the rim. The liner is rupturable with the blunt tip of a laboratory pipette inserted through a small hole in the cap for drawing a sample of a urine specimen without removing the cap of the container. The hole in the cap may remain open after collection of a urine specimen in the container, as leakage is prevented by the liner. Alternatively, a small secondary cap may close the hole in the main cap. An optional decanter may be inserted through the hole in the cap for piercing the liner to facilitate pouring of the contents without removing the cap. A method of using the novel container for conveying a liquid medical specimen from a specimen collection site to a geographically removed laboratory site is disclosed.

But to a doctor, urine can provide even more information. One way for doctors to find out whats going on inside the body is to examine what flows out of it. So dont be surprised the next time a doctor asks for a urine sample for a seemingly non-urinary complaint.. In fact, be a little proud. When you hand over that little cup, youre participating in a medical tradition more than 6,000 years in the making. Urine luck. Todays urinalysis can reveal a great deal about a persons heath. But even simple urine color can tell people when to seek medical attention. Urine color may change due to something as innocuous as medications or foods, or as malevolent as an infection or cancer.. Urine that appears pink or red from the presence of blood is one cause for alarm.. If you see blood in the urine, even once, it requires you to see a doctor, said Marshall Stoller, a professor of urology at the University of California, San Francisco. It could be nothing, he said, but it could be an early sign of ...

Pyroluria is characterized by elevated urine kryptopyrrole levels, which result in a dramatic deficiency of zinc and vitamin B6. A high kryptopyrrole result is also known as pyroluria, pyrrole disorder, or elevated pyrroles. If you do not have a practitioner that will order this testing for you, you can order this test directly through our website.. Our laboratory will provide you with the most accurate kryptopyrrole result on the market. We are the only laboratory in the U.S.A. that provides a corrected kryptopyrrole result. Our corrected result accounts for the concentration or dilution of the urine specimen. For example, if the patient has consumed a large amount of water prior to collection, the pyrrole levels will be lower in the initial result. This is due to the fact that the specimen is diluted. DHA Laboratory performs a validated procedure that calculates the level of dilution. Our procedure allows us to compensate for dilution (or concentration) in the corrected result. This allows our ...
Blood in the urine can be intermittent and can resolve spontaneously. However, this does not mean that the underlying condition that caused it has resolved. This is why even a single episode of visible blood in the urine needs to be assessed. Sometimes kidney and bladder cancers only bleed once, and the next time it bleeds, the tumour has already progressed to a more advanced stage.. Visible blood in the urine is often attributed to infection, especially in women as they are more prone to urinary tract infections (UTI). This is reasonable if the blood in the urine comes with typical symptoms of UTI like burning pain when passing urine, or frequent urination with urgency. However, if the blood in the urine is painless, it should not be blamed on UTI. While it may disappear after taking antibiotics, this may a coincidence rather than proof that it was caused by a UTI, as bladder/kidney tumours can bleed intermittently and stop spontaneously.. Bladder cancer is more common in men, but women with ...
Things of course, have changed. The advent of over-the-counter glucose monitoring devices rather than double voided urine specimens alone as a tool to determine sliding scale insulin doses, has revolutionized the treatment of Type I diabetes. Good and complete studies have also indicated that very tight and intensive glucose control of adults and children with Type I diabetes can result in their having the same life expectancy as the rest of us. Insulin pumps dont take the job of endocrinologists and educated and well trained diabetics, but they can help to provide much better control and therefore a much better life than the autoimmune diabetic could have had otherwise. An insulin pump works by providing a subcutaneous infusion of a basal rate of insulin hourly. It is ideally the amount of insulin that the patient needs to live if she doesnt eat at all. Then,a calculated bolus doses of insulin can be dialed in to cover food. These are called meal boluses. This does not free the patient to eat ...
Background: Acute undifferentiated febrile illness (AUFI) may have similar clinical presentation, and the etiology is varied and region specific. Materials and Methods: This prospective observational study was conducted in a tertiary hospital in South India. All adult patients presenting with AUFI of 3-14 days duration were evaluated for etiology, and the differences in presentation and outcome were analyzed. Results: The study cohort included 1258 patients. A microbiological cause was identified in 82.5% of our patients. Scrub typhus was the most common cause of AUFI (35.9%) followed by dengue (30.6%), malaria (10.4%), enteric fever (3.7%), and leptospirosis (0.6%). Both scrub typhus and dengue fever peaked during the monsoon season and the cooler months, whereas no seasonality was observed with enteric fever and malaria. The mean time to presentation was longer in enteric fever (9.9 [4.7] days) and scrub typhus (8.2 [3.2] days). Bleeding manifestations were seen in 7.7% of patients, mostly ...
In this study, we aimed to identify microRNA from urine of multiple myeloma patients that could serve as a biomarker for the disease. Analysis of urine samples was performed using Serum/Plasma Focus PCR MicroRNA Panel (Exiqon) and verified using individual TaqMan miRNA assays for qPCR. We found 20 deregulated microRNA (p | 0.05); for further validation, we chose 8 of them. Nevertheless, only differences in expression levels of miR-22-3p remained close to statistical significance. Our preliminary results did not confirm urine microRNA as a potential biomarker for multiple myeloma.

Bacteria are common in urine specimens because of the abundant normal microbial flora of the vagina or external urethral meatus and because of their ability to rapidly multiply in urine standing at room temperature. Therefore, microbial organisms found in all but the most scrupulously collected urines should be interpreted in view of clinical symptoms.Medical Tests Analyzer labtest bloodtest What does the test result mean?

Finding blood in your urine can be very frightening and must be investigated by a doctor, but its not usually a sign of anything life-threatening.. If you notice bright red blood in your urine, or if your urine has turned red or brown because it has blood in it, see your GP.. Sometimes, urine may contain only a small amount of blood invisible to the naked eye and is only apparent when a urine test is carried out for something else. This still needs to be investigated by your doctor, as healthy urine should not contain any detectable amounts of blood.. The medical name for blood in the urine is haematuria. If blood in the urine is obvious with the naked eye, it is called macroscopic, or visible haematuria. If the blood can only be detected with laboratory testing, it is called microscopic, or non-visible.. The blood will have come from somewhere within the urinary tract - the kidneys, bladder or the tubes that urine passes through. It is often the result of a urinary tract infection ...
Urinalysis, also called a routine urine test, is used to check for abnormalities in the urine. Urinalysis may be performed as part of a regular physical examination to screen for early signs of disease such as diabetes and kidney disease and to detect urinary tract infection and blood in the urine.

Apply the mixture to the urine stain. Blot the area with a white cloth to retrieve the moisture from the carpet. Use a different area of the cloth to see how much of the urine you are picking up. Continue this process until all of the urine has been removed. If you find you cannot retrieve the entire stain then add a dropper full of hydrogen peroxide to the remaining stain and repeat the blotting process. The urine may not be visible, but there still may be a faint odor. If the odor remains then you have not removed all of the urine. When the odor is gone, so is the urine.. ...

Although it is somewhat of a myth that eating too many blueberries can turn your urine blue, the fact is that the color it produces in urine is red.. There are a number of foods and drinks that can turn urine red, such as colored cereals, kool-aid, boysenberries, chocolate laxatives, and beets. Red urine can also be a sign of lead poisoning, though it is much more commonly caused by the consumption of certain foods and drinks such as the ones listed above.. In order for your urine to turn red, you will have to consume a considerable amount of blueberries. ...
