Understanding Urinary Tract Infection Panel in Nashik


What is Urinary Tract Infection Panel in Nashik?

The Urinary Tract Infection Panel comprises a range of blood and urine tests that help diagnose urinary tract infections (UTIs). This comprehensive evaluation helps doctors find out the specific pathogen causing the infection in the urinary tract. 

What does Urinary Tract Infection Panel measure?

Contains 22 tests

The Urinary Tract Infection Panel is a diagnostic test that measures various components in the urine to help identify the presence of an infection in the urinary tract. This panel includes tests for urine culture and microscopy which helps identify the presence of bacteria, white blood cells, nitrites, blood, and protein in the urine, helping in diagnosing urinary tract infection (UTI) and its severity. Also, it includes tests like blood urea nitrogen, serum creatinine, and uric acid all of which help assess kidney health and overall kidney function. Abnormal results of any of these tests can indicate UTI, kidney dysfunction, or other urinary system disorders, enabling doctors to tailor appropriate treatment plans.

Blood Urea Nitrogen

The Blood Urea Nitrogen test measures the levels of urea nitrogen in the blood. Blood urea is a waste product that is formed in the liver when you eat food and the protein is metabolized into amino acids. This process leads to the production of ammonia that is further converted into urea. Both ammonia and urea are nitrogenous compounds. Your liver releases urea into the blood which is then carried out to the kidneys. In the kidneys, urea is filtered from the blood and flushed out of the body via urine. This is a continuous process, so a small amount of urea nitrogen always remains in the blood.

In the case of a kidney or liver disease, there is a change in the amount of urea present in the blood. If your liver produces urea in an increased amount or if there is any problem in kidney functioning, there might be difficulty in filtering out the waste products from the blood, which can result in increased urea levels in the blood.

Serum Creatinine

The Serum Creatinine test measures the level of creatinine in the blood. Creatinine is a byproduct of muscles’ wear and tear during energy production. The kidneys remove it from the body by filtering it from the blood and releasing it into the urine. Therefore, blood creatinine levels indicate how well the kidneys are functioning in filtering and removing waste products from the blood. Generally, higher creatinine levels in the blood may indicate reduced kidney function, while lower levels may suggest decreased muscle mass.

Uric Acid

An Uric Acid test determines the level of uric acid in your body. Uric acid is a nitrogenous compound produced by the metabolic breakdown of purine. Purines are present as nitrogenous bases in the DNA and are also found in food like red meat and seafood.

Most uric acid dissolves in the blood and goes into your kidneys. From there, it passes through your body via the urine. Decreased elimination of uric acid is often a result of impaired kidney function due to kidney disease. In many cases, the exact cause of excess uric acid is unknown. Doctors seldom need to test for low levels of uric acid.

Urine C/S (Urine Culture and Sensitivity)

The Urine C/S (Urine Culture and Sensitivity) test helps identify the bacteria or yeast (few candida spp.) causing UTI; the most common bacteria responsible for UTI is E.coli. Once the pathogen (harmful microorganism) is identified, the antibiotic susceptibility test is done to formulate a treatment plan for the infection.

Urine R/M (Urine Routine & Microscopy)

The Urine R/M (Urine Routine & Microscopy) test involves gross, chemical, and microscopic evaluation of the urine sample.

  1. Gross examination: It involves visually inspecting the urine sample for color and appearance. Typically, the urine color ranges from colorless or pale yellow to deep amber, depending on the urine’s concentration. Things such as medications, supplements, and some foods such as beetroot can affect the color of your urine. However, unusual urine color can also be a sign of disease.

    In appearance, the urine sample may be clear or cloudy. A clear appearance is indicative of healthy urine. However, the presence of red blood cells, white blood cells, bacteria, etc., may result in cloudy urine, indicating conditions such as dehydration, UTIs, kidney stones, etc. Some other factors, such as sperm and skin cells, may also result in a cloudy appearance but are harmless.

  2. Chemical examination: It examines the chemical nature of the urine sample using special test strips called dipsticks. These test strips are dipped into the urine sample and change color when they come in contact with specific substances. The degree of color change estimates the amount of the substance present. Some common things detected include protein, urine pH, ketones, glucose, specific gravity, blood, nitrites, and urobilinogen.

  3. Microscopic examination: This involves the analysis of the urine sample under the microscope for casts, crystals, cells, bacteria, and yeast.

Answers to Patient Concerns & Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Urinary Tract Infection Panel in Nashik


Frequently Asked Questions about Urinary Tract Infection Panel in Nashik

Q. What is the purpose of the Urinary Tract Infection Panel?

The purpose of the Urinary Tract Infection Panel is to diagnose and identify the specific bacteria or other pathogens causing urinary tract infection (UTI). 

Q. Is there any risk associated with the Urinary Tract Infection Panel?

No, there is no risk associated with the Urinary Tract Infection Panel. It is a safe procedure. It generally involves the collection of clear catch midstream urine samples which carries no significant risks. Also, it includes the collection of blood samples through a needle prick, which may cause slight discomfort. However, serious complications from this procedure are extremely rare.

Q. Can the Urinary Tract Infection Panel test detect sexually transmitted diseases?

The UTI panel is primarily tailored to detect bacteria or pathogens causing UTI. However, some UTI panels may include tests for certain STDs like gonorrhea, which can infect the urinary tract. It is important to consult with your doctor about the specific testing. For comprehensive STD testing, other specific tests are recommended.

Q. Why is it advised to collect midstream urine for the Urinary Tract Infection Panel test?

A midstream urine sample is preferred during sample collection because it reduces the likelihood of contamination from bacteria and cells present in the urethra or around the genital area. By collecting midstream urine, you ensure that the sample reflects the contents of the bladder, leading to more reliable results.

Q. Why is the urine culture and sensitivity test important for detecting urinary tract infections?

The urine culture and sensitivity test is important for detecting urinary tract infections because not only confirms the presence of an infection but also identifies the specific bacteria causing the UTI. The sensitivity component determines which antibiotics are most effective in treating the infection, guiding the doctor in prescribing the appropriate medication.
