What amount "urine" actually detects THC levels?

What amount "urine" actually detects THC levels?

Don't understand ?: Are you asking how much urine has to be provided to have a valid test, or what the levels of thc have to be in urine to be detected? Both questions have variable answers, depending on which test is being used. Some tests require literally a drop of urine on a test strip for validity, others require a minimum of 10 cc. Some tests will detect as little as 5 ng/ml of thc, others report at 50 ng/ml. ...Read more

Urine results showed 100 mg/dL Protein in urine, Moderate Blood, Total Protein/Creatinine Ratio, Urine 319.7, Red Blood Cells, Urine 4-10, SEC many.

What regulates urine osmolarity?

What regulates urine osmolarity?

It is NOT regulated: Urine is composed of everything you DON'T need to stay healthy. It's determined by everything else, and is itself not regulated at all. Drink more water and eat less salt -- your urine will be dilute. Drink less water, sweat out your body water stores on a hot day, eat a lot of salt -- your urine will be concentrated. ...Read more

Could a 12 panel drug screen be passed using synthetic urine?

Could a 12 panel drug screen be passed using synthetic urine?

Not likely: The characteristics of several brands of artificial urine are now known, and many testing companies are specifically testing for some of those characteristics. I had a patient who passed all their tests until we noticed that the creatinine level on every test was essentially the same - that could not happen with normal urine. You should be more concerned about your drug problem than beating test. ...Read more

Urine analysis - detected (trace) ketones and bilirubin (detected trace) means what?

Urine analysis - detected (trace) ketones and bilirubin (detected trace) means what?

Nothing: Especially if you're hungry, you can have +1 ketones and it's normal. You say you have cirrhosis and it is no surprise if you've got a bit of extra conjugated bilirubin in your blood spilling into your urine. I hope the cirrhosis can be addressed; if it's hepatitis C, perhaps you can get a cure with today's meds; if alcohol, perhaps abstinence can reverse it. Be strong & stay proactive. ...Read more

Crystals in urine, concentrated, and foul smelling but no kidney stones?

How long are fentanyl metabolites detectable on a urine sample tested specifically for fentanyl?

How long are fentanyl metabolites detectable on a urine sample tested specifically for fentanyl?

Quite a bit of time: the first thing is that fentanyl is a long acting drug mainly because of the time it takes to get out of the patch and into the person. The time starts hours after the patch is removed. Due to some staying in the skin, it brings the total time to about a week after the patch is rmoved. ...Read more
