Specific Gravity Urine
Specific gravity urine is low. 1.002. What does this mean. Does it mean i'm not drink enough fluids?
Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more
Why does in acute glomerulonephritis , specific gravity &urine osmolality increase ?Shouldn't kidneys loss the ability to concentrate the urine?
Leakage of protein,,: This is likely due to the fact that there is failure of the basement membrane to contain large molecules like proteins, etc.. Also in some cases, oliguria can occur, which means anything in the urine can get concentrated even more than it should be. Proteinuria can be almost 3 g/day. ...Read more
I have a high level of specific gravity in my urine...I keep drinking water but i can't get it down! why is this?
irregular, light periods, unexplainable weight gain/inability to lose weight, low specific urine gravity and hb.
Hypothyroidism: Thank you for informing that you are not pregnant. “irregular, light periods, unexplainable weight gain/inability to lose weight” can be due to Thyroid problems, Eating disorders, Stress, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), or Birth control pill. See Gynecologist for Diagnosis and Treatment See Psychiatrist for Diagnosis, Therapy for your unmet needs, painful feelings and coping skills. ...Read more
Not enough to test: Qns translates to quantity not sufficient. It means there was not enough volume of the sample for the test to be run buy the method the lab uses to confirm the result. ...Read more
Why post hypophysectomy via transphenoifal approach nurse should check urine specific gravity every 4 hrs?
Diabetes insipidus: After a transphenoidal surgery, you can have a disruption of the production of a pituitary hormone called vasopressin, which normally controls the amount of water that is filtered through the kidneys into your urine. This can result in losing too much water in your urine, a condition called "diabetes insipidus", resulting in diluted urine which can be measured by checking the specific gravity. ...Read more
Does urine specific gravity increase or decrease in post-renal azotemia ? And what about pre renal ?
Depends : In pre renal azotemia if due dehydration or volume depletion, specific gravity should be high but depends on baseline kidney functions like any underlying kidney disease. I am not sure what you meant by post renal azotemia- in general someone passing lots of urine and is clear, specific gravity should be low as it is likely to be dilute urine; but are some exceptions. ...Read more
Is it possible to have a normal urinalysis with central diabetes and normal urine specific gravity? If so, how?
Yes: When the question is central diabetes insipidus (you DO mean diabetes insipidus, right?), urine SG should be masured by hygrometer or something more precise than the urinalysis strip. "Normal" SG is 1.003 to 1.030 depending on the variables that life provides. If you can concentrate your urine above 1.020, I'm doubting it's diabetes insipidus. Best wishes. ...Read more
