How do I take urine phosphate test?

ANSWER

Here’s what you’ll do:

It may help to set an alarm the morning of the second day to make sure you stick to the 24-hour window.

  • When you first get up in the morning, pee into the toilet, not the container. Then write down what time it is.
  • After that, pee into the container each time you go for the rest of the day and night.
  • The next morning, get up at the same time as the day before and pee into the container one last time.
