Kidney Stone 24-hour Urine Analysis Test Online


Test Code: 306266
Specimen Type: Urine

Description:

Kidney Stone 24-hour Urine Analysis Test

This test measures various substances in a 24-hour urine sample that can help to determine the risk for developing recurrent kidney stones.  Kidney stones are formed from minerals and salts in the kidneys.  As much as 20% of men and 10% of women develop at least one kidney stone in their lifetime.  At least 50% of people who have had a kidney stone will suffer from recurring stones. A urine test for kidney stones measures substances that contribute to kidney stone formation.  High concentrations of one or more of these substances in the urine can indicate that a person is likely to develop kidney stones. 

The Urine Kidney Stone Analysis includes the following measurements:

  • Ammonia
  • Calcium
  • Chloride
  • Citrate
  • Creatinine
  • Cystine
  • Magnesium
  • Osmolality
  • Oxalate
  • pH
  • Phosphorus
  • Potassium
  • Sodium
  • Sulfate
  • Brushite
  • Calcium Oxalate
  • Monosodium Urate
  • Struvite

Results from this test should be interpreted by your doctor.

Urine Kidney Stone Testing is typically ordered after a person has developed a kidney stone to help determine their risk of developing more stones in the future.  Follow-up testing every 6 months to a year is typically recommended to see if any levels are increasing.  Testing can also be ordered for people with a family history of kidney stones or other risk factors.

Turnaround for this test is typically 6-10 business days.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.

Requirements:

You will be required to obtain a 24-hour urine container and collection instructions from the lab.
