  Romans 8:28

First of all, no home test kit is a replacement for seeking medical care. If you have symptoms that concern you, are different than you usually experience, or increase in severity, you should consult with your medical care advisor immediately.

That being said, many interstitial cystitis patients find it helpful to be able to test their own urine; if for no other reason than to help sort out their symptoms better. If you use any of these testing products, be sure to follow all directions carefully, reading (and re-reading) all warnings carefully.



Give These Items a Try:

AZO Urinary Test Strips (product varies per merchant)

AZO Standard for Urinary Discomfort

Always check with your physician before adding or changing medications. Never disregard or delay seeking medical advice.
