The Urinalysis, also referred to as the Routine Microscopy, is a test that examines the different components of the waste products of the kidneys. These are elements which are removed from the blood and passed them on into a fluid know as Urine.
 
Urine  tests can often be easy, quick, are pain free, and an essential part of any routine check-up or examination; as a number of health problems can be detected through this procedure.

So what exactly does a Urinalysis check for? Well there can be any number of things--
New York Doctors Urgent Care offers a basic Rapid Urine Test,  Pregnancy Test and Urine C&S.
  
Rapid Urine Test (same day): The test is used to check for acute symptoms like lower abdominal pain, stomach ache or back pain, frequent and painful urination, sugar levels, pH levels, or blood in the urine.

Pregnancy Test (same day): This test is used to check for a special hormone in the woman's urine, Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG). This hormone is an indicator of pregnancy.

Urine C&S (2-3days): This test is used to diagnose a urinary tract infection (UTI) and also to find out which types of bacteria are causing the infection. This test can also be used after a treatment for a urinary tract infection to find out if the treatment has worked.

Unsure of which test you might need?  Just walk-in to any of the two New York Doctors Urgent Cares and let a Doctor help you find out. (No appointments necessary)

It's relativity straight forward, but most often we can be unfamiliar with the terminology used when doctors talk about blood pressure. Two of those terms, Systolic and Diastolic, are the most important! They are elements used to calculate your blood pressure, but what do they mean?

According to the ASA (American Heart Association) Blood Pressure is just what it sounds. It is the amount of pressure that the circulating blood in your body, puts on the walls of your blood vessels.

With each beat of your heart, the amount of pressure that your blood exerts can vary. These amounts are defined as a minimum and maximum amount of pressure. 

  • The term Systolic defines the maximum amount of pressure. It measures the pressure that the flow of blood excretes against the artery with each heart beat when the blood is being pumped.
  • The term Diastolic defines the minimum about of pressure. It measures the pressure that the flow of blood exerts in the artery while the heart is at rest. (This means the moment right after the heart has pumped the blood, until it moves and pumps the blood again. Aka: The heart beat.) 
So, now you have a better idea of what your doctor means when they mention Systolic and Diastolic pressure.

....Well maybe...are you feeling sluggish or tired?

It could be any number of things. Or it could that you might have a B12 deficiency. You can always check, by having a blood test done to test your B12 levels, and then getting a shot of  B12  for a boost of energy.

A little information on the vitamin! 

Basically,  B12  is a water-soluble vitamin that helps your body to produce red blood cells.  It plays an important part in maintaining your brain and your nervous systems functionality. It even affects the synthesis of your DNA.

Interestingly enough, B12 cannot be produced naturally in animals, plants, fungus or humans. Only specific bacteria and archaea ( microbes which are physically similar to bacteria but posses a different gene structure) are able to synthesis this Vitamin. If a natural food (like Salmon) contains B12  , it is because it has bacteria that live in a symbiotic relationship with it, thus producing the vitamin for the plant or animal. This is known as Bacterial Symbiosis.

This vitamin is often produced through industrial means, by a process called bacterial fermentation-synthesis. Making it more widely available for distribution as an additive to food, drinks, pills, and even in injections!
