The 24-hour Urine Collection comes from a test that checks and measures what is in the urine, and how much the protein is spilled in the urine, which can help detect disease or other problems. The 24-Hour Urine Collection is a simple and non intensive test. Urine samples are collected in one or more containers for 24 hours. The containers are kept in a cool environment and then sent to a lab for analysis. Specialists then check the urine for protein.
A 24-Hour Urine Collection can be done on our own. It can be started with the first time pee during the day, and just note the time. Then, for each other time throughout the day, pee in the pan and transfer it to one of the containers, label it with name and the time, and store it in a bag in the fridge. Collect urine throughout the day and take the last sample 24 hours later. Then take the samples to the lab right away.
A 24-Hour Urine Collection can be stored in a cool environment. This means it can be kept either on ice or in the refrigerator for the next 24 hours. Make sure the urine does not freeze. Do not forget to label the container with name, date, and time collection and try to urinate again at the same time, 24 hours after the start time to finish the collection process. After 24 hours of urine collection, the samples must be taken to a lab for analysis.
A 24-Hour Urine Container volume can hold between 800 to 2000 milliliters per day with a normal fluid intake of about 2 liters per day. It depends on the intake of the fluid per day. The normal value ranges may vary slightly among different laboratories.
