Carbon Health, Reno, Smithridge Plaza - 5067 S McCarran Blvd
Reno carbon has become my new favorite place. I usually go to the sparks location. But I do not mind the drive to just be seen at the Reno location. Will continue to come here. Very beautiful and relaxing waiting area.

Quest Diagnostics - 6502 S McCarran Blvd
Great discreet service, scheduled my visit and paid for for the test online not in Showed up at lab, checked in and was seen within minutes. Blood and urine were collected, test results came back quickly within 2 days because I did my test on a Friday. Quick, easy and cheap. Didn't have to wait for a visit to my PCP, and then get referral to lab.

I was able to choose a Quest lab location and schedule an appointment. Check in was easy, and I only needed to provide my name and DOB. They were able to locate my order in their system. They were already aware that my labs were paid for prior to the appointment. I had my labs done on a Wednesday, and I received my results by Saturday. Great experience.

Urinalysis FAQs

  • How much does a urine test cost in Truckee?

    Urine test prices vary depending on a variety of factors, including the type of test, test provider rates, and your geographic location. For individuals whose health insurance policies cover it, a urine test may be less expensive. Contact the urinalysis provider directly to confirm the cost of urine testing, or check with your health insurance provider to see if they will cover the cost.

  • Does insurance cover urine testing in Truckee?

    Urine testing is covered by many health insurance policies, especially if your doctor considers it medically necessary based on your symptoms and health condition. Contact your health insurance provider directly to learn more about your plan's features and to confirm whether urine testing is covered. Some urinalysis providers may be able to check your insurance benefits prior to your session.

  • What types of tests are done through urinalysis?

    There are several types of urine tests that can be performed to check for various health problems and medical conditions. A glucose urine test can be used to diagnose and monitor diabetes, for example, whereas a protein urine test is frequently used to detect renal illness. Urine tests for bilirubin, ketones, and red blood cells are just a few of the different types of urine tests your doctor might order.

  • What can be detected through a urinalysis?

    A urinalysis is a test that examines the urine for substances that could indicate the presence of an ailment, disease, or infection. Bacteria, blood, creatinine, nitrite, and white blood cells are just a few of the substances that can be detected by urinalysis. By detecting higher cholesterol levels, high crystal concentrations, urine acidity level (pH value), and urine acidity level (pH value), a urinalysis can also be used to confirm pregnancy (pH value).

  • How do I read urine test results?

    To examine and interpret urine test results, you can use a visual examination, a microscope, or a dipstick—a tiny, plastic strip that changes color when abnormalities are found. In hospitals, clinics, and labs, urine test results are usually interpreted by a doctor or a lab worker. The majority of at-home urine test kits sold by pharmacies and other providers include detailed instructions on how to read and interpret your urine test results.

  • How long does it take to get urine test results in Truckee?

    Urine test results could be available in minutes or many days, depending on factors such as the type of test, lab wait times, and the method used to interpret data. The results of dipstick urine tests used to diagnose pregnancy, for example, are typically available in minutes. The urinalysis testing firm can give you a more accurate idea of when your results will be ready.

  • Where should I get a urinalysis in Truckee?

    A urinalysis can be done by a primary care physician, a walk-in laboratory, or a hospital. Some urine tests can be completed in the convenience of your own home. Your doctor can usually do a urinalysis for you or refer you to a lab or clinic that can. Inquire with your doctor about where you can get a urinalysis, or use Solv to find top-rated urinalysis providers in your area and make an appointment the same day.

  • How accurate are urine tests in Truckee?

    Urine tests have a high accuracy rate as long as the sample is taken in the middle of the flow. You collect a urine sample midstream by urinating for a few seconds, pausing mid-flow, and then collecting the residual pee in a sterile test cup. This method of collecting urine reduces the risk of bacterial contamination, which can lead to inaccurate test results. Additionally, cleaning the vaginal area before submitting a urine sample will help you avoid receiving inaccurate test results.

  • How can I book a urine test through Solv?

    In only a few minutes, you may book a urine test with Solv. On our Home page, type "urinalysis" in the "What" form, then your location in the "Where" field. Solv can give you a list of urinalysis providers in your area who have received high ratings. After you've chosen a provider, phone them and make an appointment using the information provided. Many of the urinalysis clinics on Solv have same-day appointments available.

  • Can I do at-home urine testing?

    At-home urine testing may be a possibility for you if you utilize a dipstick test. Urine tests that you can do at home include dipstick tests for pregnancy, urinary tract infection, and drug presence. Inquire with your doctor about at-home urine testing and whether it is a viable option for you, given your unique health situation. Your doctor may also advise you on the finest at-home urine tests to use in order to get accurate findings.

Truckee Urine Tests

A urinalysis is a test that examines the urine for substances that could indicate an illness, sickness, or infection. Urinating into a sterile cup is required for the majority of urine tests, which are then sent to a lab for further investigation. At-home urine tests may be available depending on the condition for which you are being tested.

A urine test can be used as part of a routine medical exam to diagnose or rule out conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, and urinary tract infections. It can also be used to identify blood or kidney stones, as well as confirm pregnancy.

A urinalysis assesses your urine's color, odor, appearance, and acidity level, among other things. Your urine may also be checked for germs and bacteria, cells and crystals, and substances like protein, glucose, and ketones that aren't ordinarily seen in urine but could indicate a problem.

Urine tests usually don't require any preparation, though the urinalysis testing provider may ask whether you're taking any prescription or over-the-counter medications, as some of them can affect the color of your urine. The testing provider may also recommend that you attend the lab or clinic first thing in the morning to complete the test, which you should do.

For a urine test at a lab or clinic, you will be requested to give a small urine sample into a sterile cup. Before the test, your doctor or urinalysis testing provider may suggest you wash your vaginal area with mild soap and water to prevent bacteria from contaminating the sample. A lab will examine your urine sample to check if there are any abnormalities that could indicate illness or disease.

The results of a urine test might take anywhere from a few minutes to a few days, depending on the type of test performed. Your doctor or the urinalysis testing company may call you personally if necessary to discuss your results and treatment alternatives.
