FOR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS - Improve health outcomes and lower cost
The Wellumina U10 results are equivalent to the urinalysis “dipstick”, with the added benefits of long shelf-life, quantitative results and data collection. Replacing the “dipstick” test with the Wellumina U10 eliminates the subjectivity that often exists with the current test. Data collection allows the results to be referenced over time to determine if a treatment plan is effective. In the case of home-bound patients the Wellumina U10 eliminates the need for patient transport by providing laboratory quality diagnostic. Urologists, nephrologists and ob/gyns can provide better care for their patients by recommending the at-home test. Diabetics and acute hypertension patients in particular can benefit from periodic self-testing. Test kits can be mailed to plan participants as a part of preventive care programs. Early detection and timely monitoring can lower healthcare cost and improve health outcomes.
FOR CHRONIC CONDITIONS - Monitor treatment effectiveness at home
Patients with high blood pressure and diabetes are at increased risk for kidney disease. Periodic testing with Wellumina U10 can monitor kidney health and provide your doctor with valuable information to assess the effectiveness of your treatment plan. For chronic UTI, the onset of infections can be detected and treated early. Urine testing should be conducted periodically by diabetics for monitoring and at blood glucose level above 300 mg/dL or if any symptoms of ketoacidosis are experienced like vomiting, nausea.
FOR FAMILY HEALTH - Early detection to protect your families health
Families can use Wellumina U10 for periodic health screening and monitoring. The test covers a range of health conditions that affect 20-25% of the population. Some of these conditions can remain undiagnosed and advance without significant outward symptoms e.g. diabetes, kidney disease. Early detection and intervention helps protect your families health.
FOR PREGNANCY CARE - At home health monitoring during pregnancy
Wellumina U10 provides a simple way for pregnant women to check for complications through periodic urine tests. Infections can often be detected by a urine test before any symptoms appear. High levels of glucose in urine may indicate gestational diabetes. Preeclampsia can be a serious complication of pregnancy and is indicated by the presence of protein in urine along with high blood pressure. U10 monitors glucose, ketone, protein, blood cells and bacteria in urine and can alert you to consult with your Ob/Gyn.
FOR DIET & FITNESS - Monitor impact of your regimen
To see if your body is in fat-burning mode, monitor the presence of ketones in urine with Wellumina U10. To see if you are adequately hydrated, you can track the specific gravity of urine. Over-exercising can produce invisible amounts of red blood cells in urine that can be detected by the test. Trend charts in the Wellumina app can show the impact of changes in diet or exercise regimen on fat-burning and kidney/liver health.
