24-Hour Urine Protein Test Cost & Procedure

24-Hour Urine Protein

24-Hour Urine Protein

The amount of protein excreted in urine during a 24-hour period is measured by 24-hour urine protein. The test is performed to determine the function of the kidneys.

The 24-hour urine protein test measures the amount of protein that is passing into the urine and can be used to identify diseases or other issues. The examination is easy and non-intrusive. Over 24 hours, urine samples are gathered in one or more containers. The containers are transferred to a lab for analysis after being kept in a cold atmosphere. Then experts look for protein in the urine. This is frequently a symptom of renal disease and damage. The test cannot identify the types of proteins present in the urine. Your doctor may also request tests like a serum and urine protein electrophoresis to figure this out.

Why done? 

To detect the below symptoms:

  • Hands swelling
  • High blood creatinine
  • Diabetic
  • hypertension
  • Renal disease
  • Heart disease
  • Family history of chronic kidney disease

Why is a urine protein test conducted after 24 hours?

Other forms of renal illness or ailments that have an impact on the kidneys are also adequate grounds for ordering the test, such as:

  • unmanageable diabetes
  •  blood pressure is high.
  • screening for lupus and preeclampsia during pregnancy
  • This is distinct from a protein-to-creatinine ratio test, which only requires one urine sample.

24 Hour Urine Protein Test procedure: 

The quantities of substances in urine might alter throughout the day. Daily urine sampling may provide a more accurate urine content picture. The following is the technique for collecting urine samples for test:      

• Starting on day 1, you should urinate into the toilet as soon as you wake up in the morning.

• After that, collect the toilet in a particular container for the next 24 hours to avoid contamination.

• On day 2, when you first wake up in the morning, urinate into the container you've set out earlier that day.

• Cover the container with a tight-fitting cover. Please place it in the refrigerator or another cool spot during the collection time.

How are exams administered?

  • The only requirement for the test is regular urine.
  • There are no hazards present. The test can be carried out at a hospital or home.
  • You'll typically begin in the morning. The first time you use the restroom, you won't be able to save the urine.
  • Instead, go for a flush and start the timer.
  • For the following 24 hours, you will collect the remaining pee.
  • Your 24-hour urine collection should be kept in a cool place.
  • Your name, the day and the hour of collection should be written on the container.
  • The urine samples must be taken to a lab for analysis after being collected for 24 hours.

Your healthcare physician will instruct you on how to transfer the urine if you're at home
