World Kidney Day! Lanao del Norte offers free urinalysis to provincial employees


Lanao del Norte Provincial Health Office has organized free urinalysis to the employees of the local government.

The clinical urine test held Monday, March 11, at the clinic of Governor Arsenio A. Quibranza Provincial Government Center, Pigcarangan, Tubod, was in line with the celebration of the 2019 World Kidney Day with the theme, “Kidney Health for Everyone Everywhere,” the provincial government said.

Urinalysis or urine testing is used to look for abnormalities such as an excess amount of protein, blood, pus, bacteria or sugar. It can help detect a variety of kidney and urinary tract disorders, including chronic kidney disease, diabetes, bladder infections and kidney stones.

Dr. Jennifer C. Lee expressed happiness that a greater number of employees had undergone urinalysis.
