Dr. Greene’s Answer:
The UA is a urinalysis. Many aspects of the urine are tested. On a school form, the normal result would be ‘negative’ or ‘normal’. We check the urine as a screening test to look for chronic infections (not all urinary tract infections have symptoms), diabetes (sugar in the urine), kidney problems (protein or blood in the urine), and a host of other things. Many conditions will show up on a UA.
