When you go to a urologist or any sort of doctor and urinate in a cup, do they check for diabetes?
Is there a urine test to check soley for neurontin (gabapentin). I did a 10 panel urine screen, can they pull urine out of the scrn that i did or a diff one, help!
See answer: Since Neurontin (gabapentin) is not a controlled substance nor it is an addictive drug it is not tested for unless there is some specific reason to test for it. A 10 panel drug screen tests for cocaine, amphetamines, methamphetamines (meth), marijuana, methadone, opiates, phencyclidine (pcp), barbiturates, benzodiazepines, and tricyclic antidepressants. ...Read more

How do they test for kidney infections, would it come up in a urine sample? Got tested for a uti.. Seem to be having pain in kidney area in back
Stop using drugs: Please forgive my frankness. The only way you can be confident of not having drug use detected by a pre-job urinalysis is to be clean. This isn't the place to debate the wisdom, especially with respect to cannabis. If low levels of the latter are detected, as they may be weeks after stopping heavy use, you can claim passive exposure credibly. ...Read more
No: Depending upon severity of urinary tract infection, sometimes only a few parts of urinalysis (typically a dipstick) show up positive. If it's really bad, maybe everything turns positive. At that point, we make an educated guess re which antibiotic to offer. If you've had multiple bladder infections or signs of kidney infection, we can send urine for culture & sensitivity to determine exact antibio ...Read more
