W10 Worksheet: Urinalysis Follow the instructions below very carefully. Many of the items in this assignment require reading, or videos, or something else to do. Each question has either a text box that can be filled out or a box that can be checked to show completion. Be sure to type out your answers completely and expand the text boxes if you need the additional space. Question 1 --- 2 points Urinalysis Some urinary system diseases can have relatively insignificant symptoms in the early stages. The careful analysis of urine and urine production can sometimes reveal pathology that would normally go unnoticed for a long time. Just a few examples of such diseases that urinalysis might help identify are diabetes, various forms of urinary tract infections, and kidney disease. If you are attending the lab, your lab instructor will give you a urinalysis reagent strip and let you do your own analysis. Go to the urinalysis presentation (links to an external site) to do a tutorial that will guide you through some practice with urinalysis, then answer the following questions. Please remember that links in this worksheet generally open up a new window, so you may need to close it to return to this worksheet.
