I don’t want to relive all the not so pleasant memories but still, just for information purpose, let me briefly tell you what is a Urine Dipstick?
It is an easy way to find out the presence of Albumin in the urine. Albumin is a form protein which if exceeds the prescribed level can cause Female Urinary Tract Infections. Women are most vulnerable to Urinary Tract Infections.
I have gained pages of information about this infection, causes, symptoms and treatment from Epocrates Online Inc, developers of medical software used by over 500,000 healthcare professionals.
Yes, I also owe my gratitude to my sister-in-law, a gynecologist who tirelessly treated me for urinary infection several times in the past.
