Diagnosis Of Abnormal High Or Low Levels Of Urobilinogen
To diagnose abnormal levels of urobilinogen in urine a urinalysis test can be conducted which will measure whether the level is normal, too high or too low.
Normal levels of urobilinogen in the urinary tract and in the urine from bilirubin reduction are less than 17 umol/l.
With a urinalysis a urine sample is collected during a 24 hour period or over a period of a couple hours which is most common.
The urine sample must be tested for urobilinogen as soon as possible to avoid bacterial oxidation from occurring.
