A urine sodium test is used to test whether you are properly hydrated. It can also evaluate your kidney function. There are two types of sodium urine test. A random test looks at sodium in a single urine sample. A 24-hour test looks at urine sodiu...
A blood urea nitrogen (BUN) test checks kidney function by measuring how much urea nitrogen is in your blood.
Fractional excretion of sodium (FENa) measures the amount of sodium leaving your body relative to the amount of salt filtered through your kidneys and reabsorbed into your body. It is used to determine how well your kidneys are working. FENa is no...
Osmolality measures the concentration of all particles in a fluid. For example, a thick, sugary syrup has significantly higher osmolality than a cup of water with just a pinch of sugar. The urine osmolality test measures the amount of several comp...
A urine sample is a painless way for your doctor to evaluate your health and test for abnormalities. When your doctor orders a urine sample test known as a urinalysis, one part of this testing may be for specific gravity. A urine specific gravity ...
Osmolality is a measure of how much of one substance has been dissolved in another substance. The greater the concentration of substance dissolved, the higher the osmolality. Very salty water, for example, has higher osmolality than water with jus...
A complete blood count, or CBC, is an easy and very common test that screens for certain disorders that can affect your health. A CBC measures several components of your blood and can help diagnose a broad range of conditions, from anemia and infe...
You have two kidneys, each approximately the size of a human fist. They are located in the back of your abdomen, below the rib cage, one kidney on either side of your spine. The kidneys play several vital roles in maintaining health. One of their ...
An ultrasound scan is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body. The technology is similar to that used by sonar and radar, which help the military detect planes and ships. An ultrasoun...
Proteins circulate throughout your blood to help your body maintain fluid balance. Albumin is produced in the liver, and is one of the most abundant proteins in your blood's fluid or plasma. A proper balance of albumin is required to keep fluid fr...
