Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

Hey mate? Full urinalysis? And that's all they wanted?

Are you saying they asked for that after getting your records?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes they said happy with all the bloods etc now need full urinalysis so I peed in a big pot off it went to lab.
Waiting now ?
They said something about a tobacco test ??
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Oh, OK. That's just standard these days in case someone lies about any use of tobacco products. Hikes the insurance premium if someone smokes or chews or dips
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Cotinine ?? And a lab urine test it says. I should be ok my doc dipped it last time I went all fine he said ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
That's the nicotine metabolite they test for. So what's your worry here my friend?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
You know me. !!
Any test sets me off. !!!!
Worrying
What do they test urine for in a lab
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

Dip stick it for white and red cells, specific gravity, urobilinogen, ketones,

glucose and a microscopic for red cells white cells, casts, bacteria.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I feel fine and the cat scan of the pelvis would see stuff ? Also lol my kidneys are fine you have seen them ! Lol !
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
You are fine my friend and I'm sure this urinalysis will be perfectly normal. It's just standard for the life insurance and it isn't like they think they're going to find anything. Please go find something else to worry about since this one really isn't worth your energy
