Urine test

Urinalysis is not a new concept. It's been around for a long time and is a test that an average person can do at home, in a village clinic, or anywhere. The easiest form to use are Urine Dipsticks.

For my healthcare experiment, I chose Multistix. These diagnostic dipsticks give me an overall view of my internal health. Specifically these strips test Glucose, Bilirubin, Ketone, Specific Gravity, Blood, pH, Protein, Uribilinogen, Nitrite, and Leukocytes. Instructions for use come with the Multistix package. There is test interpretation available on the Internet or in books, if you want to diagnose yourself. My Resources page might be helpful.

Good Luck on your DIY Healthcare Journey. I wish you well. Say hi as you pass me by. :-)

  1. Wow! What a great site!
    Thank you for sharing your ideas and findings.
    This is the way forward!
    I have been on the DIY road for all my life, but indeed one is much helped in knowing which tests one can do at home to confirm one´s "suspicions".
    I hope many people will find your site and so help themselves and others.
    We are all one and by helping others we help ourselves!
