Appearance
Urine may be clear or cloudy. Cloudy urine could indicate the presence of impurities or an infection.

The pH indicates if the urine is alkaline or acidic. The pH is dependent upon the type of food eaten and the time of day the urine sample was collected.

Specific Gravity
The specific gravity is an indication of the density or concentration of the urine compared to water.

Glucose
Glucose is not normally detected in the urine of normal healthy individuals. Glucose is usually seen in the urine of patients with diabetes mellitus.

Protein

Ketones
Ketones are not normally detected in the urine of normal healthy individuals. The presence of ketones in the urine is indicative of diabetes mellitus or acute starvation.
