When abnormal values of urobilinogen is found during a urine test, further investigation is required to ascertain your true health status. Using a urine test is a quick and inexpensive way to check for urobilinogen in your urine, and is one of our test kit products that can be done in the privacy of your home.
Normal urobilinogen range in urine
Urobilinogen measuring range
Levels of urobilinogen in the urine
Abnormal urobilinogen values may indicative of
overburdening of the liver
excessive RBC breakdown
increased urobilinogen production
re-absorption - a large hematoma
restricted liver function
Further action required if low or high urobilinogen values are found in urine
Our urobilinogen urine test strip
The test uses an aminobenzaldehyde which strongly reacts with urobilinogen under acidic conditions to produce a range of pink colors.
All colors indicating less than 17 umol/l (1mg/dl) urobilinogen should be interpreted as normal.
A negative result at any time does not preclude the absence of urobilinogen. In addition, the test cannot be used to detect porphobilinogen.
High concentrations of p-aminosalicylic acid and sulphonamides may obscure test patch color.
Nitrite, isonicotinic acid (INH) and indole have little or no effect on the test.
Detection range: 3 umol/l urobilinogen
Active reagent: aminobenzaldehyde (0,17% w/w); sulfosalicylic acid (40,0% w/w).
