Urine Dipstick Specific Gravity
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
Specific gravity urine is low. 1.002. What does this mean. Does it mean i'm not drink enough fluids?
Urine test showed Specific Gravity 1.010 and the normal was 1.011. Other results normal. What does that mean?
TheGravityofYour...: A specific gravity of 1.010 is very close to the fluids in your blood vessels(not the blood cells).So in the urine, that means the kidneys aren't working to save any fluid (mostly water).This could be a normal response to drinking a lot of fluids or a sign that the kidneys aren't doing their job.Depends on what else is going on with you.If you feel healthy then it's probably nothing to worry about ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am 21 female. Urine test shows specific gravity- 1010 & Epithelial cells- 3-5/hpf.
Is this normal?
Normal: Your urine is fairly dilute with a SG of 1.010. Epthelial cells are quite normal in a female. These came from your vagina. There would likely be less or no epithelial cells if your labia were widely separated & you caught a mid-stream specimen. No RBCS, WBCs or bacteria is excellent. Good Luck, no cause for any concern ...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
A urine having a pH of 9.0 with many uric acid crystals, clear and a specific gravity of 1.010. What could be the findings?
Hi i my 2 yrs old son urine analysis test showed 25(1.4) absobic acid, 1.030 Specific gravity and ph 6. what does this mean?
Here are some...: The findings from his UA indicate he has a good functions of kidneys so to have high urine sp gr of 1.030 and suggest possible taking vitamin-C. Clinically, that is okay, but giving him more oral fluid intake in moderation is advisable. So, don't worry as long as he has been behaving well in daily activity. More?

Sr creatinine(0.91mg/dl). All other urine analysis is normal. specific gravity is low 1.005. What is the significance of this.
Urine specific grav: Specific gravity is a measure of the "other" things in your urine besides plain water, and can include electrolytes, proteins, and sugars or other chemicals. The fact that your level is very low would indicate that you have been drinking lots of fluids so the urine is dilute, or your kidneys won't concentrate the urine by excreting electrolytes. Sr. Creatinine should check nl range for lab. ...Read more
