Urine Specific Gravity Each day an adult excretes between 800ml and 2000mL of urine. This amount varies depending on various conditions that can influence fluid loss and fluid intake. For example, the loss of fluid through heavy sweating in hot weather reduces urine amounts. The minimum volume of urine needed to remove body wastes from an adult is about 500mL/day. The specific gravity of urine can be an indicator of disease or disruption in normal metabolism. As you recall from our earlier discussions...

Lab Report on Urine for A&P II

Laboratory Report on Urine Examination Introduction: When testing urine the test results may provide information regarding the status of carbohydrate metabolism and kidney function. The kidney glomeruli act as ultrafilters for the plasma protein; however as much as 150 mg/dl of protein may normally be excreted into the urine. In glomerular proteinuria, an increase in glomerular permeability occurs, resulting in an increase of urine proteins. High urine protein concentration therefore may indicate...
