It can test for pregnancy, certain infection, kidney or liver disease, toxic substances (eg: cocaine) and metabolic diseases (eg: Diabetes).

A rapid urine test can test for:

  • pH value (diet)
  • protein (kidney function)
  • sugar (diabetes)
  • nitrite (infection)
  • ketone (diabetes)
  • bilirubin (liver function)
  • urobilinogen (liver function)
  • red blood cells (infection, kidney stone, etc)
  • white blood cells (bladder infection, kidney infection, rarely cancer)

All tests (except the pH) should be negative.
