  • Every three to six months, your internist or general practitioner may request a blood sugar test called a hemoglobin A1C test-also known as the HbA1C, glycohemoglobin, alycosylated hemoglobin, or glycated hemoglobin test. This test shows how well ...

  • 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 specific gravity test compares the density of urine to the density of water. This quick test can help determine how efficiently your kidneys are diluting your urine.
  • 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...
  • Antidiuretic hormone (ADH) is a hormone that helps your kidneys manage the amount of water in your body. The ADH test measures how much ADH is in your blood.
