Optimal hydration is essential to good health. Proper fluid levels are fundamental for muscular endurance and overall physical performance, as well as maintaining body temperature, aiding digestion, distributing nutrients and oxygen to cells, and facilitating the removal of waste and toxins. In addition, Insufficient hydration can compromise cognitive functions and memory while also negatively affecting mood, concentration, and memory.

Monitoring hydration levels can offer insight into overall wellness. It can also provide important information about fluid intake that can be critical for athletes, people with health conditions like diabetes, older adults, and people living and working at high altitudes.

Hydration test strips by Diagnox® use urine specific gravity (USG) measurements for a fast, accurate dehydration test at home. By measuring the concentration of electrolytes and other substances in your urine, the test strips provide a snapshot of hydration levels at the time of the test. Diagnox hydration test strips are designed for regular and repeated testing to provide a record of dynamic changes to hydration relative to fluid intake, diet, and activity.

Diagnox hydration test strips are individually packaged to protect each strip from humidity and moisture. Unlike conventional strips in spin-top bottles that expire within a few days after opening, individually packaged dipsticks offer an extended shelf life, convenient handling, and easy storage. You can count on Diagnox hydration test strips for reliable testing with every use.

As a diabetic who frequently suffers UTIs, I found Urinox-10 to be easy to use and reasonable in price. Other brands deteriorate rapidly, once opened. Each test strip is individually sealed to prevent this problem.

Test Parameters

Leukocytes Diagnox, test parameter
Leukocytes
Leukocytes (leukocyte esterase, simply white blood cells - WBC) are the cells of the immune system that protect the body against infections. It is quite normal for a few white blood cells to be present in the urine. High levels of white blood cells in urine will result in a positive test result, which may suggest an infection, such as a UTI. Positive leukocytes in urine test may also indicate inflammation in the urinary tract.
Nitrite , Diagnox
Nitrite
Normal urine contains chemicals called nitrates. If bacteria enter the urinary tract, nitrates can turn into different chemicals called nitrites. Nitrites in urine may signal a urinary tract infection (UTI). However, UTIs can be present despite a negative Nitrite test. The nitrite in urine test also provides an indirect method for early detection of significant bacteriuria (bacteria in urine).
Urobilinogen , Diagnox
Urobilinogen
Urobilinogen is formed from the reduction of bilirubin, a yellowish substance found in the liver that helps break down red blood cells. Normal urine contains some urobilinogen (up to 1.0 mg/dL). If there is little or no urobilinogen in urine, it can mean the liver isn't working correctly. Too much urine urobilinogen (> 2 mg/dL)  may indicate liver diseases such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, hemolytic anemia, or liver damage due to drugs, etc.
Protein , Diagnox
Protein
A protein in urine test measures the concentration of protein excreted in the urine. Proteins, usually found in blood, are substances that are essential for the body to function correctly. Protein can leak into the urine if there is a kidney problem or kidney infection, such as nephrotic syndrome. The presence of protein in the urine is named Proteinuria. A urine protein test is vital to know albumin levels to assess kidney health.
pH , Diagnox
pH
A urine pH test analyzes the acidity or alkalinity of urine. A neutral pH is 7.0. The higher the number, the more basic (alkaline) it is. The lower the number, the more acidic urine is. The pH of urine may change during the day going from acidic pH in the morning to more alkaline in the evening. Urine pH is an important marker for overall health screening. Various conclusions can be drawn about the state of health from the normal urine pH.
Blood , Diagnox
Blood
Blood in the urine is not a normal finding, but it is not uncommon and not necessarily a cause for alarm. Your healthcare practitioner will investigate further to determine the source and underlying cause. Blood in urine is termed Hematuria. Several factors can cause Hematuria, including UTI, kidney infection, menstruation, and strenuous exercise.
Specific Gravity , Diagnox, test parameter
Specific Gravity
The kidneys' primary function is to maintain a healthy fluid and electrolyte balance. The specific gravity of urine measures the ability of the kidney to concentrate or dilute the urine. Urine specific gravity provides information about an individual's hydration status. Concentrated urine will have a high specific gravity, whereas dilute urine will have a low specific gravity.
Ketone , Diagnox, test parameter
Ketone
Ketones are chemicals (a type of acid) made in our liver. Everyone has them, but they're more prevalent in people who fast or are on low-carb/high-fat diets or individuals with chronic conditions like diabetes that inhibit the body's ability to produce sufficient insulin. High levels of ketones in urine (referred to as ketonuria) may indicate insufficient insulin levels and help monitor type 1 diabetes. Keeping track of ketone bodies in urine helps to monitor ketosis when on a keto diet.
Bilirubin , Diagnox, test parameter
Bilirubin
Bilirubin is a yellowish substance made during the body's normal process of breaking down red blood cells. Bilirubin is found in bile, a fluid in your liver that helps you digest food. If your liver is healthy, it will remove most of the bilirubin from your body. If your liver is damaged, bilirubin can leak into the blood and urine. Bilirubin in urine may be a sign of liver disease. Bilirubin levels should be tracked, e.g., using UA strips in liver patients.
Glucose , Diagnox, test parameter
Glucose
When blood is filtered in the kidneys, some sugar remains in the fluid that will later become urine. High glucose in the urine, known as glycosuria, is usually the result of abnormally high blood sugar levels. It is important to note that a urine glucose test is not a replacement for a blood glucose test. A Glucose blood test measures the glucose levels in the bloodstream. In contrast, urine glucose test strips measure the amount of glucose in urine secreted by the kidneys.

Test Parameters

Leukocytes , test parameter, diagnox
Leukocytes
Leukocytes (white blood cells - WBC) are the cells of the immune system that are involved in protecting the body against both infectious diseases and foreign invaders. A few white blood cells are normally present in urine and generally yield negative results. When the number of WBCs in urine increases significantly, this screening test will become positive. High levels of WBCs in the urine suggest an infection, such as a UTI.
Nitrite , Test parameter diagnox
Nitrite
Normal urine contains chemicals called nitrates. If bacteria enter the urinary tract, nitrates can turn into different, similarly named chemicals called nitrite. The presence of Nitrite in urine indicates possible asymptomatic infections caused by nitrate-reducing bacteria, which may be a sign of a urinary tract infection (UTI). To detect UTI, the presence of Leukocytes in urine is also considered. UTI can be present despite a negative Nitrite test. The Nitrite test also provides an indirect method for early detection of significant bacteriuria (bacteria in urine).

Quick and Easy Home Hydration Test
This home hydration test from DIAGNOX allows anyone to easily determine their level of hydration using a simple test strip that provides results in just 45 seconds. The product includes 30 individually foil-sealed test strips, a small instruction insert, and a reference card for checking the results. The test itself is straightforward: open a packet, remove the strip, and dip it in a fresh urine sample for a second or two. After 45 seconds, compare the color change on the strip to the reference chart. This will reveal the specific gravity of the urine sample, which directly correlates to one's hydration level. It's a fast, objective way to assess this important health measure without guesswork. The test strips can be useful for athletes, those managing their weight, or anyone interested in monitoring their general wellness. The only drawback is that the instructions mention a companion smartphone app for interpreting and tracking results. However, after creating an account on the website, I was not able to find the urine hydration test among the available products. The app is not essential, as the test is self-explanatory, but it would have been a helpful addition if it had been available. Even without it, this simple and inexpensive home test provides a convenient way to monitor one's body water balance.

Useful!
I bought these as my husband works all kinds of hours doing manual labour in the sun and has had more than one close call with sun stroke after clearly not staying hydrated enough! I've sent him to work with a giant water bottle and these to make sure he can keep track with his hydration and so far they've been pretty accurate with telling him if he needs to drink more water. If you struggle with hydration or knowing if your properly hydrated these are very useful!

Convenient and accurate
I have used other hydration urine test strips from other brands. They all are similar and offer about the same features for about the same price. But, there are a few stand out brands who's products are a step above others. Diagnox hydration strip test kit, is a brand and product that stands out. The first thing I appreciate about these urine hydration test strips, is that they are individually sealed and packaged. You don't have to carry the entire package or a bottle of strips to take with you on the go or when you travel. The individual packs can fit in your pocket, wallet, bag and purse without being intrusive to space. It's very small and convenient to carry. The small packs are also self sufficient in that they not only contain a strip, but each sealed packaged contains a hydration level chart for you to match your results with. So, you have all that you need within each small individual packets. The other thing that stands out a little different than other brands, is the more variable scale of hydration level they use in their chart. They include borderline dehydration level markers, which makes your knowledge of your dehydration level more specific, so that you have an idea of how much more water you should intake. As to the accuracy of the testing strips, I compared the results of these strips to the results of another reliable brand of strips and the results were consistent. So, the strips are very accurate and reliable. I can't think of any downside to purchasing these strips. The price is reasonable and the quality and functionality of the product is great.

A great health tool and works well
These came just in time and we were able to confirm that they are accurate! My DIL is pregnant and has trouble staying hydrated. Right after these strips arrived she wasn't feeling well so she used one to see if she was dehydrated. The strip showed her to be optimally hydrated so she knew something else was wrong. She decided to go into the hospital and when they tested her, they also determined she was optimally hydrated. My husband, son, DIL, and I all use them now to make sure we're getting enough water and electrolytes. What a helpful health tool! Especially during the AZ summer! We will definitely purchase again.

Use these religiously
How accurate are they? Well everyone should be drinking 64oz of water a day. Some need more due to medication and health issues. First you need to have your health managed and understand that if you are thirsty, have only drank caffeine or no water, you're dehydrated. If you are like me and have consistency issues then test strips are beneficial. You can drink a lot of water and still be dehydrated. I have found these are perfect for the person who has issues remembering to drink it and then will drink adequately but wants to check to get a baseline. Always remember that If you have serious concerns to see your Dr. So far they have been incredibly helpful for me. They are easy to use, read and seem to be good quality.

Health monitoring tool that's easy to use & each test comes individually wrapped
Health monitoring tools have come a long way over the past few years, and I’m continually impressed. Nowadays it’s not uncommon to be able to test yourself for many things right from home. Turns out that testing your hydration level is one of those things. As someone on a perpetual journey to better hydration and weight management, these strips have been a game-changer. I appreciate the ease of use – just a quick dip and a glance at the color chart, and you know where you stand with your hydration levels. Each test comes individually packaged and sterile until you’re ready for use. Although I can’t vouch for 100% accuracy every time, these do-it-yourself tests seem to be correct in their assessments on average (if the test is done correctly, that is). Plus, the price point is quite reasonable for a month’s supply if you’re checking daily. The app integration isn't necessary for my purposes, but it's a nice option to have. Highly recommend!
