It is used as a screening and/or diagnostic tool because it can help detect substances or cellular material in the urine associated with different metabolic and kidney disorders. Ua's are ordered routinely to detect any abnormalities that require follow up. It can detect protein or glucose in the urine before people are aware of a problem. Get a ua for your answer.
