Re: Help Needed for Friend Urine Colour ( pic included)

There currently is no single reliable, cost-effective screening test for preeclampsia. 4 The serum uric acid level once was used as an indicator of preeclampsia but has been found to lack sensitivity and specificity as a diagnostic tool. 14 However, an elevated serum uric acid level may be of some ...
