Urine Test for the detection of Diabetes and Ketones
Approximately 50% of people with diabetes don’t know they have it.
This test looks for the presence of glucose (sugar) in your urine which is the most accurate form of testing available. Doctors, hospitals and nurses will use very similar tests within their clinics which means, that you can be confident in the result that you get from these tests. Consult your doctor if a reading is abnormal.
Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from carbohydrates in the food we eat and is also produced by the liver and is our body’s main source of energy. Most of the food we eat is broken down into glucose. The level of glucose in the blood is regulated by a hormone called insulin. Insulin stimulates cells to absorb enough glucose from the blood for the energy they need. Insulin also stimulates the liver to absorb and store any glucose that’s left over.
This kit contains 5 dip-and-read test strips and are intended for use to check for glucose and Ketones level in urine specimens as an aid in diagnosing diabetes. The test provides results by the visual comparison with color chart printed on the pouch. Each color denotes a range of concentrations of glucose and Ketones.
This test is simple to use and takes only 30 – 60 seconds to get your result. If you obtain an abnormal result with the first strip, repeat the test using another strip.
