Can A Urinalysis Detect Pregnancy
UA is also known as Urinalysis. A ua is a urinalysis, or chemical and microscopic analysis of the urine.

In addition, a urinalysis usually includes a microscope examination to identify if the urine contains cells, "casts" (structures that indicate a problem originating in the kidney) or crystals (such as ...Read more
Pregnancy week 21 urinalysis show specific gravity of 1.01 normal range (1.003-1.030) everything else is perfect what does this mean?

It serves as a tool: A dipstick ua by itself cannot detect kidney stones; when positive, it serves as an important piece of the puzzle. A microscopic ua may provide more information and cue us in as to what kind of stone may be present. The best way to detect a stone is to catch the stone. Diagnostic imaging is often needed since its a hard fish to catch. ...Read more
