The univariate analysis results [Table 3] indicated that factors associated with CKD in the aircrew members were abnormal occult blood in the urine, abnormal urobilinogen, high total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and high total bilirubin.
Convert bilirubin to urobilinogen, some of which is reabsorbed and subjected to enterohepatic recirculation, while the rest is excreted through the kidneys as urobilin.
Bilirubin, urobilinogen, protein, and blood were considered positive if there was any colour change during one minute.
The presence of bilirubin and urobilinogen indicated liver damage which was also indicated by increased serum bilirubin and liver enzymes.
Some of the bilirubin is reabsorbed back into the body through the bowel wall - eventually appearing in the urine as a substance called urobilinogen (although the typical yellow or orange colour of urine is in fact due a different pigment called urochrome).
Her complete urine analysis showed pH = 6.0, specific gravity = 1,020, proteins = +++, RBCs = 24/HPF, pus cells = 3-4/HPF, glucose = nil, ketones = nil, bilirubin = nil, urobilinogen = normal, casts = nil.
Urine urobilinogen may also be increased in extreme cases.
Urinalysis: color: intense amber, aspect: turbid, Ph: 6, density: 1.025 (1.010-1.030), albumin: negative, glucose: negative, bilirubin: +++, urobilinogen: normal, hemoglobin: ++, bacteria: ++, leucocytes: 7-10 xc, erythrocytes: 17-20 xc, WBC casts: 0-2 xc.
The Urisys 1800 (Roche Diagnostics) is a sensitive and specific analyzer for urinalysis, measuring various urine analytes semi-quantitatively, including specific gravity, pH, leukocytes, nitrite, protein, glucose, ketones, urobilinogen, bilirubin and blood (1).
Common evaluation parameters include urine color; clarity; pH; specific gravity; and presence of protein, glucose, ketones, bilirubin, urobilinogen, nitrite, cells (rbc, wbc, epithelial, or renal), crystals, casts, parasites, yeast, bacteria, and sperm.
Urine dipstick: Appearance--clear, yellow; pH--5.5; specific gravity--1.025; negative for protein, glucose, leukocyte esterase, nitrite, ketone, urobilinogen, bilirubin, and blood.
Urobilinogen was found in 100% of the studied amphibian urinary samples, with concentrations of 0.2 mg/dl (92% of animals) and 1 mg/dl (8% of animals).
UROPIECE S, Astellas Pharma's proprietary urine test paper, can simultaneously measure up to nine items, including urinary urobilinogen, protein and occult blood, in 30 seconds.
