Urea Breath Test (UBT) 尿素呼气检验

The urea breath test is a rapid diagnostic procedure used to identify infections by Helicobacter pylori, a spiral bacterium implicated in gastritis, gastric ulcer, and peptic ulcer disease. It is based upon the ability of H. pylori to convert urea to ammonia and carbon dioxide.

Urea 尿素

Blood urea depends on the balance between production and excretion. It is the major end product of protein metabolism. Levels slightly above normal are seen in persons on a high protein diet or acute starvation. Kidney disease is the principle cause of high blood urea

Uric acid 尿酸

Uric acid is formed from the metabolism of nucleic acid. Blood levels depend on the balance between dietary intake and synthesis by the cells and excretion by the kidney. High uric acid levels will lead to gout, urinary stones and kidney disease. A person with high uric acid should reduce their intake of high protein diet, internal organs, fish roe and alcohol.

Urine analysis / Urine feme and urine microscopy 尿液检验

Urine is produced by the kidneys from blood flowing through it. It therefore reflects conditions in the blood, kidneys and urinary tract. The finding in the urine is also influenced by the things we eat and drink.

Urine Microalbumin (UMALB) 尿微量白蛋白

A test designed as an early indication for kidney damage. The kidneys contain tiny blood vessel clusters that filter waste from blood. Diabetes and high blood pressure can damage this delicate filtering system. Microalbumin tests can detect this damage at the earliest possible stages. Prompt treatment can help prevent kidney failure.
