Application of Urine Chemistry and Microscopic Examination in Health and Disease
This paperback book provides the reader with valuable information used in the diagnosis and monitoring of disease through urinalysis. Such testing is useful not only in detection of individuals who have some clinical abnormality, but also in confirming normal urinalysis in the majority of individuals who do not have detectable abnormal levels. The intent is to provide the reader with a comprehensive understanding of the basic laboratory procedures used in routine urinalysis along with the methodology used in urinalysis strips.

The Clinical Significance of Urine Test Results
One simple test provides a wealth of information. This clinical utility guide summarizes how urine test results can be used to detect and manage various disease states. Urinalysis is a fast, simple, inexpensive, and reliable tool for ruling in, or ruling out, many diseases related to carbohydrate metabolism, urinary tract health, kidney and liver function, acid-base balance, and many other medical conditions. Clinically relevant information can be obtained when analyzing the combined results of certain test parameters available on the urinalysis test strips.
