UA

UA is short for urinalysis, and is an analysis of a urine sample that can measure a number of different compounds that pass through the urine. A urinalysis is the oldest known form of testing and diagnosing disease, the first tests dating back to 500 BC when they were done by the ancient Greeks. A urinalysis is performed on three different levels: The physical analysis, the chemical analysis, and the microscopic analysis. These tests are performed to screen for the early signs of several different diseases, to monitor certain conditions you may have such as diabetes or kidney disease, to diagnose a UTI (Urinary TractInfection), or to check for blood in urine. A urinalysis can also be performed as a method of drug-testing and pregnancy testing.

Here at DOCCS, urinalysis are done on-site daily by our doctors and physician assistants. Depending on the reason for the test immediate results can be delivered, however some tests have to be sent out for a more detailed analysis.
