Uchek App Lets You Test Your Urine For Medical Conditions

Doctor visits can be expensive and not every health insurance covers all of the tests that your doctor requires (and not everyone has health insurance). Pretty soon you’ll be able to analyze your own urine samples and check for medical conditions using an app called Uchek, which is coming to iTunes soon.

No, you don’t have to pee on your phone. Like at the doctor’s office, ¬†you pee into a cup and then dip a test strip into the cup. The strip will change color and you can use the strip and an app to analyze the results based on a color system.

Wired has more: “With the color comparisons as a guide, the app analyzes the results, and comes back in seconds with a breakdown of the levels of glucose, bilirubin, proteins, specific gravity, ketones, leukocytes, nitrites, urobilinogen and hematuria present in the urine. The parameters the app measures are especially helpful for those people managing diabetes, and kidney, bladder and liver problems, or ferreting out the presence of a urinary tract infection.”
