Vivoo’s nitrite box indicates the state of your urinary tract health. It does this by analyzing your urine sample for the presence of nitrites and leukocytes.

Urinary Tract 

The urinary tract consists of the kidneys, ureter, bladder, and urethra. The primary function of your urinary tract is to collect, transport, store, and dispose of urine. Your urinary tract is also responsible for eliminating metabolic products and toxic wastes filtered from your kidneys.

The physiological and microbial state of your urinary tract is important for maintaining its health. However, when there is a decline in the physiological or microbial state of your urinary tract, it may be at risk of experiencing recurring health problems.

Symptoms and Risks of a Possible Issue in Your Urinary Tract

Issues in your lower urinary tract can come with a wide range of symptoms.

The most common symptoms include:

  • Frequent urination
  • Pain or burning feeling when urinating
  • Fever
  • Foul-smelling urine
  • Pelvic pain
  • Back or side pain under the ribs
  • Urinating only a small amount despite the feeling of urgency

In addition, there are certain factors that put you at greater risk of having issues in your urinary tract. These include: 

  • Sexual intercourse
  • Poor hygiene
  • Kidney stones
  • Diabetes
  • A weakened immune system
  • Pregnancy
  • A previous infection

Using Vivoo to Detect Nitrites and Leukocytes in Your Urine 

Urinary tract health problems can occur when pathogens – originating from the digestive tract (e.g., bacteria) or from sexual intercourse (e.g., fungi and viruses) – enter the urethra and multiply within the urinary system. A urinalysis can help examine your urine for the presence of certain microorganisms to identify potential health problems.

How can you tell if you might be experiencing issues in your urinary tract? The answer is in leukocytes and nitrites. 

First, we have leukocytes. Leukocytes are a type of white blood cell, which play a key role in helping your body fight off infections. If your body is fighting a problem in the urinary tract, this would mean that the number of white blood cells in your urine increases. In other words: a high leukocyte count in your urine can suggest that your body is battling a problem in your urinary tract. 

Then we have a chemical called nitrite. Your body converts nitrate present in urine to nitrite only when there’s a problem in the urinary tract – as a defense mechanism. As a result, the presence of nitrites in your urine is a fairly strong indicator of a possible decline in the health of your urinary tract.

Possible Results:

Vivoo determines the likelihood that you are experiencing a health problem in your urinary tract by analyzing your urine sample for leukocytes and nitrites. Here are the possible results which you might get using a Vivoo test: 

No risk of having a health problem in your urinary tract:

Score: 10/10, Label: Great, Value: Nitrite: Negative, 0 Leu/μL 

Moderate risk of having a health problem in your urinary tract:

Score: 6 to 9 /10 Label: Moderate, Value: Nitrite: Negative/Positive, Leu: 25-100 Leu/uL

You might need to make some adjustments in your lifestyle depending on the level of risk you have for a potential problem relating to your urinary tract. 

High risk of having a health problem in your urinary tract:

Score: 1 to 5 /10 Label: Weak, Value: Nitrite: Positive, Leu: 500 Leu/uL

Urinary Tract Health Problem

If you are classified as high or moderate risk, you may want to consider the following changes in your daily habits and lifestyle: 

  • Drinking plenty of water
  • Emptying your bladder when you go
  • Wiping after using the toilet from front to back
  • Cleaning the genital area before and after sexual intercourse
  • Urinating after sexual intercourse
  • Avoiding using soap to clean the genital area
  • Changing sanitary pads frequently
  • Wearing cotton underwear and avoiding tight-fitting clothing

Some research suggests that certain foods may help support the health of your urinary tract. Examples of these foods include cranberries and food that contains probiotics, such as yogurt or kefir. Cranberries prevent coli bacilli bacteria from adhering to the cells which line the inner surface of your bladder, and thus lowers the risk of experiencing a possible health issue in your urinary tract.

    1. Hi Jeremy, thank you for your interest in Vivoo. Nitrate and nitrite are different chemicals. Nitrate is a waste that is normally found in the urine. If you have a bacterial urinary tract infection, the bacteria convert nitrate to nitrite.
