UTI Home Screening Test Kit
For those men and women who are prone to UTI, a screening test kit is available for home use. It is fast and easy to use for a qualitative detection of urinary tract infection before any signs of pain or discomfort upon urination manifest.
I bought the UTI test kit at Watson’s and it costs 150 pesos. It contains 3 test strips, a product insert containing instructions on how to use the kit with general information about UTI and a color chart pad.
The best time to test UTI is to use the first morning urine specimen. Clean the genital area and wash your hands. One can urinate directly to the test strips but it has to be midstream urine, meaning urine that is passed in the middle part during the act of urinating. Follow the steps mentioned in the product insert.
If your results are abnormal make sure your doctor knows about this, because complications can happen such as infection of the kidney, bladder and urethra.
