Suresign Family Health Screening Test pack of 6 tests

Family Health Screening Test is unique to Suresign.  It is a urine based test which detects nitrates, protein, urobilinogen, blood and specific gravity.  All of these, if present or present at high levels can indicate illness or infection, mainly relating to the heart, liver, kidneys and urinary tract.  Any colour change of the test strip can be compared with the colour chart provided to reveal the results.  The Family Health Screening test contains 5 test strips, allowing you to test different members of the family at regular intervals, or when you feel unwell.

What does it test for?

  • Nitrite - Nitrite is not detectable in normal urine.  Positive nitrite can be indicative of urinary tract infection.
  • Protein - Up to 14mg/dL of protein may be excreted by a normal kidney.  Higher than normal levels of protein in urine may indicate a variety of disorders including diseases of the kidney and urinary tract.  In older patients, high protein levels may occasionally indicate heart problems.
  • Urobilinogen - Urobilinogen is normally present in low concentrations in urine.  High levels of urobilinogen can indicate liver disease or conditions associated with increased breakdown of red blood cells.
  • Blood -The presence of red blood cells or haemoglobin in urine can indicate diseases or damage to the kidneys or urinary tract.
  • Specific Gravity - Urine collected a different times of day may vary in specific gravity from 1.003-1.035.  Specific gravity equal or less than 1.010 indicates dilute urine and readings equal or greater than 1.025 indicate concentrated urine.  Low readings may simply be due to excessive liquid intake and high reading may be due to insufficient drinking causing dehydration.  However persistent low readings can be due to kidney problems and continuous high readings can be indicative or underlying clinical problems relating to the kidney and possibly the heart.
  • Bilirubin - Bilirubin is not found in normal urine.  The presence of bilirubin in urine is an early indicator of liver disease such as obstruction of the bile duct or hepatitis
