Bilirubin and urobilinogen concentrations in urine were increased in samples from Nigerian patients with malaria, compared to uninfected patients (P < 0.05) [11].
Urine analysis revealed a specific gravity of 1005, albumin: nil, urobilinogen: normal trace, pH 6.5, pus cells 2-3/HPF, RBCs 8-10/HPF, SGOT 11 U/L, SGPT 35 U/L, and total bilirubin 0.7 mg/dl.
Human urine metabolome [4] has pointed out that thousands of compounds are detected in urine, including wide-ranged concentrations of urea, urobilinogen, inorganic salts, creatinine, ammonia, organic acids, and water-soluble toxins.
Complete blood cell tests (red blood cell, hemoglobin, hematocrit, platelet, and white blood cell), serum biochemical tests (creatinine, BUN, ALT, AST, and glucose), and urinalysis (pH, specific gravity, glucose, ketone, red blood cell, nitrate, total protein, bilirubin, urobilinogen, and white blood cell) will be performed.

Urinalysis on the first day of admission showed specific gravity 1.007, pH 5.5, urine leukocyte esterase 3+, urine nitrite negative, protein 1 +, glucose negative, ketones negative, urobilinogen [less than or equal to] 0.2 mg/dL, bilirubin negative, occult blood 3 +, white blood cell count >100/ high power field, bacteria moderate, red blood cell negative, a few amorphous crystals, and a few white blood cell clumps.
Laboratory investigations revealed hemoglobin level 10.8g%, platelet count 1.5L/cumm, total bilirubin 5.2 mg/dl, ALT 46IU, AST42IU/L, urine was negative for urobilinogen, bilepigments and bilesalts.
Urobilinogen test abnormalities were observed in 274 (33.5%) of these crewmembers.
Urine was anonymously tested by Combur 10 Test D dipstick (Roche Diagnostics, Basel, Switzerland) for the following: specific gravity, leucocytes, nitrites, proteins, glucose, ketones, urobilinogen, bilirubin, blood, and haemoglobin.
Urinary and fecal urobilinogen level is increased because of destruction of bilirubin.
The app enables a mobile phone to analyze urine dipsticks "for the qualitative and semi-quantitative determination of urine analytes including glucose, urobilinogen, pH, ketone, blood, protein, bilirubin, nitrite leukocyte, and specific gravity." The letter required the company to explain to FDA why its mobile app was not a medical device subject to clearance under section 510(k) of the FD&C Act.
