Multistix Test Strips

Multistix Test Strips include test pads for protein, blood, leukocytes, nitrite, glucose, ketone (aceto-acetic acid), pH, specific gravity, bilirubin and urobilinogen. Please refer to the carton label to see which tests are included in the product you are using.

Multistix Test Strips are intended for use in at-risk patient groups to assist diagnosis in the following areas:

  • Kidney function
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Carbohydrate metabolism
  • Liver function

Each of the Multistix Test Strips also measure physical characteristics, including acid-base balance and urine concentration. Test results can be used along with other diagnostic information to rule out certain diseases and to determine if microscopic analysis is needed.

Multistix Reagent Test Strips

Glucose and ketones are one of the many different things Multistix Reagent Test Strips test for. Multistix Reagent Test Strips provide a fast, convenient way of testing urine for the presence and concentration of glucose and ketone. Ketones are substances the body makes when cells are receiving enough glucose (blood sugar). Glucose is the body’s main source of energy.

Acetoacetic acid can be found in the urine from persons with diabetes and is more commonly referred to as a “ketone body”. When dipped in urine Multistix Reagent Test Strips change colour according to the amount of glucose and ketone in the urine. High levels of ketones may indicate DKA, diabetic ketoacidosis. This is a complication of diabetes that if left untreated can lead to a coma or even death.

This is why it’s important to use Multistix Reagent Test Strips to frequently detect ketone levels so treatment can begin before a medical emergency transpires.

Use of Multistix Reagent Test Strips can also alert you and your doctor to changes in your condition for which adjustments in your diet and/or medication may be needed. Carefully follow the testing schedule your doctor or diabetes team establishes.

Multistix Urine Test Strips

You may need to use Multistix Urine Test Strips if you have diabetes and symptoms of DKA. Symptoms of diabetic ketoacidosis include:

  • Excessive thirst
  • Increased urination
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Dry or flushed skin
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fruity smell on breath
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion

DKA is most common in people with type 1 diabetes, but can affect anyone diagnosed with diabetes. People with Type 1 diabetes don’t produce the hormone called insulin. Insulin is responsible for controlling the amount of glucose in the blood.

Your doctor may want you to keep an eye on your ketone levels, so Multistix Urine Test Strips and other similar devices will likely be recommended for continued monitoring for diabetic ketoacidosis.

Multistix GP Test Strips

A normal test will result in no ketones detected. This will mean the Multistix GP Test Strips didn’t detect any ketones in the urine. If the result is positive and ketones are present in the blood, then it could mean you have DKA.

However, there are other conditions that can cause you to test positive for blood ketones after using Multistix GP Test Strips. These include:

  • Malnutrition, eating disorders, and other conditions where the body doesn’t absorb or take in enough calories.
  • Pregnant women will sometimes develop blood ketones. If ketones are found in the blood during pregnancy, it could mean gestational diabetes, a type of diabetes that only affects pregnant women.

Multistix 8 Sg Urine Test Strips

Multistix 8 Sg Urine Test Strips test for the following parameters:

  • Leukocyte
  • Protein
  • Blood
  • Ketone
  • Nitrite
  • pH
  • Specific Gravity
  • Glucose

The two others that aren’t included in the Multistix 8 Sg Urine Test Strips are Bilirubin and Urobilinogen. Those two parameters are included in the 10 SG test strips.

Multistix 10 Sg Urine Test Strips

If you have used Multistix 10 Sg Urine Test Strips before and the test has come back negative, but the most recent one has detected ketones, go to your nearest A&E immediately.

DKA is considered an emergency and needs to be treated in hospital as soon as possible.

If you’re unsure about the Multistix 10 Sg Urine Test Strips result, contact a local GP or speak with your diabetes team.

Contact them if:

  • If blood sugar or ketone levels are high or are getting higher over time, but no symptoms are showing.
  • Ketone levels or blood sugars levels are normal or only slightly higher than usual, but you still feel unwell.

Multistix 10 Sg 100 Test Strips

DKA is typically treated in hospital after it has been diagnosed using testing methods such as Multistix 10 Sg 100 Test Strips.

  • Insulin that’s injected directly into a vein
  • Fluids given into a vein to rehydrate the body
  • Nutrients given by a vein to replace any that has been lost

Along with the above, vital signs such as the brain, kidneys and lungs will be closely monitored. Patients are usually discharged once they are well enough to eat and drink and further Multistix 10 Sg 100 Test Strips show safe levels of ketones in the body. The typical hospital stay lasts around 2 days.

Multistix Reagent Test Strips 100

In order to use Multistix Reagent Test Strips 100 correctly, please follow the below instructions or the instructions listed on the packaging.

  • Remove one of the Multistix Reagent Test Strips 100 from the bottle of strips and replace the cap. Completely immerse reagent areas of the strip in the urine and remove immediately to avoid dissolving out of reagents.
  • While removing, run the edge of the Multistix Reagent Test Strips 100 against the rim of the urine container to remove excess urine. Hold the strip in a horizontal position to prevent possible mixing of chemicals from adjacent reagent areas and/or contaminating the hands with urine.
  • Compare reagent areas to corresponding colour chart on the bottle label at the time specified. Hold the strip close to colour blocks and match carefully to get your Multistix Test Strips Results. Avoid laying the strip directly on the colour chart, as this will result in the urine spoiling the chart.

Multistix Test Strips Results

To get the most accurate Multistix Test Strips results here are a couple of helpful tips and hints. Remember if you’re concerned about any of the Multistix Test Strips results, speak to your doctor or diabetes team.

  • Do not remove the strip from the bottle until immediately before it is to be used for testing. Replace the cap immediately and tightly after remove the reagent strip. Do not touch the test areas of the strip as this could spoil the Multistix Test Strips results.
  • Do not read any test pad after 2 minutes; colour changes that occur after this time are no diagnostic value.

Discolouration or darkening of the test pads may indicate deterioration. If this is evident, or if test results are questionable or inconsistent with expected findings, check to make sure the expiry date on the packaging hasn’t passed.
