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

    00:06 Relax.

    00:07 I'm going to give you two categories to loop them in, but let's go through the five nitrites ketones, leukocyte, ester, ace.

    00:15 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, 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.

    00:36 But these other four nitrites leukocyte esterase bacteria and yeast are all four 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 patient's health.
