Testing Children: A urinalysis is usually ordered when a doctor suspects that a child has a urinary tract infection or a health problem that can cause an abnormality in the urine. This test can measure:
Sometimes, when the urine contains white blood cells or protein, or the test results seem abnormal for another reason, it Is because of how or when the urine was collected. For example, a dehydrated child may have a few white blood cells or a small amount of protein in the urine. But that may not necessarily mean that there's an infection or a health problem. Once the child is rehydrated, these "abnormal" results may disappear. Depending on the amount of protein or white blood cells in the urine, the doctor may repeat the urine test at another time, just to make sure that everything is back to normal.
