Urine R/M stands for "Urine Routine & Microscopy". Urinalysis, which means the analysis of urine, is one of the most common methods of medical diagnosis which is used to diagnose several urinary tract related diseases, and even other diseases that can be directly or indirectly related to your urinary tract.
Your doctor recommends a Urine R/M test in case he or she suspects the following ailments or medical conditions:
- Kidney disorder.
- Infection in the urinary tract.
- Metabolic disorders such as liver diseases or diabetes.
A Urine R/M test can also be conducted as a part of a routine health checkup. This test is also conducted sometimes before a planned surgery.
