Review:         

I really like that the Areta brand of urine tests strips for urinalysis are better than the ones I see at work in the healthcare field. These rapid testing strips actually test for more than the ones we typically see. Usually in the healthcare field they are only looking for leukocytes (white blood cells) and nitrates which indicate infection, however these Areta test strips actually test for much more. At the end of my review you'll find a list of what all these strips test for.

I would use these Areta 10 Parameter Urinalysis Test Strips as a preliminary self-test or self-screening if I am suspecting anything amiss from myself or a family member. I have several older family members that can benefit from these types of testing strips and of course my family at home could potentially benefit as well. Of course, once you get the results from the rapid urine test, it is wise to your primary care physician have lab work done to confirm the results.

These very affordable Urinalysis Test Strips from Areta can be found on Amazon.com in various quantities at a time.

Nitrites: may be a sign of urinary tract infection or other infection.
Leukocytes: aka white blood cells. Also indicates presence of infection.
Glucose: the most common test for diabetes.
pH: measures urine acidity, associated with higher risk for kidney stones.
Protein: (albumin): tests for kidney function.
Ketones: caused by disorders of increased metabolism; also by unbalanced diets such as high protein/low carb, anorexia or fasting.
Specific gravity: evaluates the body's water balance and urine concentration.
Blood: can result from infection, injury, inflammation, kidney stones or cancer.
Bilirubin: could indicate liver or gallbladder problems such as gallstones, hepatitis, cirrhosis or tumors.
Urobilinogen: checks for liver disease.

Easy to Use:
1. Just dip the test into urine sample for 1-2 seconds and read results
2. Just compare the reagent areas on the strip and the parameter corresponding color on the container.
3. Results in minutes; Test at home and keep the privacy
