In case of dehydration the urine is concentrated so specfic gravity is high.

What conditions favor kidney stone formation?

Prolonged high specific gravity, which is the measure of concentrated urine. A condition that causes this is prolonged dehydration.

What does it mean when a urine test states you have high urine content?

If you mean like high amount of urine: Polyuria. If you mean like high amount of particles inside the urine: High specific gravity = your urine may have high levels of glucose, protein, bilirubin, urobilinogen, or/and a lot of mucus, crystals, bacteria, and tissue/blood cells.

What is a high specific gravity?

A weight that means it will sink in water. Water has the assigned specific gravity of 1. Something with a higher specific gravity will not float in water.

It must be thickerer. Therefore, it must take more tomatoes to make the "high specific gravity" type.

What is the alcohol content in high gravity?

High gravity generally refers to a high starting sugar content or dissolved solids in a beer prior to fermentation. The more sugars, the higher the specific gravity reading on a hydrometer, thus "high gravity". To know the alcohol content of a specific beer requires knowing the original gravity (OG) prior to fermentation and the final gravity (FG) after fermentation is complete. A high gravity beer could have a high alcohol content but you need to know starting and final gravity to actually determine alcohol content.

What does a high or low specific gravity of urine signify?

Increases in specific gravity (hypersthenuria, i.e. increased concentration of solutes in the urine) may be associated with dehydration, diarrhea, emesis, excessive sweating, urinary tract/bladder infection, glucosuria, renal artery stenosis, hepatorenal syndrome, decreased blood flow to the kidney (as a result of heart failure), and excess of antidiuretic hormone caused by Syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone. A specific gravity greater than 1.035 is consistent with frank dehydration. Decreased specific gravity (hyposthenuria, i.e. decreased concentration of solutes in urine) may be associated with renal failure, pyelonephritis, diabetes insipidus, acute tubular necrosis, interstitial nephritis, and excessive fluid intake (e.g., psychogenic polydipsia).

What causes high urine temperature?

Urine is the same temperature as the body it leaves. If the person has a fever, the urine will be a higher temperature. This is why there is a temperature gauge on the outside of a sample bottle.

Does gold float or sink?

Gold, because of it's high specific gravity (19.3) will sink. Specific gravity is the indicator of how many times heavier than the same quantity of water.
