Hello. Why was your urine tested? What is the normal range for hemoglobin for your lab?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Ohno just someone from an insurance did a dipstick test and said everything was normal. When I did it myself later again it showed ca 10 haemoglobin

Are you there doctor ?
Urologist: Dr. Bob, Medical Doctor replied 4 months ago

Yes. The urine dip test is not terribly reliable. It is meant as a screening device. If there is something that pops up as abnormal, we follow up with a full urinalysis. Can you ask your doctor for a urinalysis? You may not need to be seen. Just have him order the test, go in to the lab to drop off a specimen, and then await the results. In the meantime, you should not worry about this result.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
