24 Hour Urine Collection (Litholink) Instructions
You have been given a test request form to complete a 24 hour urine collection. This test studies the urine and blood to determine your specific risk factors for forming kidney stones. You will complete this test at home.
We have sent your order to Litholink. They will mail you a box of supplies to complete your 24-hour urine collection. Instructions will be in the box. Make sure you complete all forms and follow all directions.
You will need to collect all voids for 24 hours, so choose a day to do this test when you will be at home all day. You will need to come to our office the day after the test for fasting bloodwork.
Call our office before you start your collection to let us know you will come in the next day to drop off your urine and get your blood drawn. You need to be fasting for the bloodwork, so plan to come in the morning.
Bring your 24-hour urine, all forms and shipping supplies into our office the day after the collection. Remember, you need to be fasting this day.
If you plan on getting a fasting bloodwork at your local LabCorp, please ask our office for an order form during your visit. Please avoid taking the kit to Fed Express office since they will not be able to do your blood work.
It normally takes 3-4 weeks for the results. Please make a follow up appointment to discuss these results after you have completed the 24-hour urine. If you have any questions please feel free to call our office.
NOTE: This test cannot be done with another doctor’s office.
PLEASE CALL OUR CORNWALL OFFICE AT 703-443-6733 TO SPEAK TO DR. PAHIRA’S NURSE TO SCHEDULE A TELEVISIT APPOINTMENT TO REVIEW YOUR RESULTS.Print Page
