    00:00 Now this slide I've listed the five things that should not be present in your urine.

    00:06 Relax, I'm going to give you two categories to Loop them in but let's go through the five.

    00:10 Nitrites, ketones, leukocyte esterase, that's an enzyme produced by leukocytes or white cells bacteria or yeast.

    00:21 Okay ketones that's in a category all by itself.

    00:25 If this is a diabetic client where we've got a problem.

    00:28 This is they're ripping through fat for energy instead of being able to use the glucose in their body.

    00:34 So that's its own category, but these other four nitrites, leukocyte, esterase, bacteria, and yeast, are all for signs that we've got a problem with a possible infection.

    00:48 So we definitely need a microscopic analysis.

    00:52 Now I'm not usually a big fan of multiple lists, but these are five things you need to know.

    00:58 I'll walk you through each one but these are really important that you know what each one of these five things can tell you about your patients health.
