Urine specific gravity is 1.015
Healthy urine is about 1% denser than water. Your test of HIGH SPECIFIC GRAVITY means your urine is more concentrated or dense than normal urine. This may be caused by not drinking enough water; fluid loss from profuse sweating, vomiting, or diarrhea; kidney disease; pregnancy-related toxicosis; diabetes; or other causes.
- Monitor your fluid intake: try to regulate your fluid intake and make sure it is within a healthy range (usually 6-8 glasses per day).
- Consult a doctor: if high specific gravity persists or is accompanied by other symptoms, consult a doctor for further examination and diagnosis.
- Kidney function tests: Your healthcare provider may run tests to evaluate your kidney function and determine if there are any underlying problems.
- Follow your doctor's recommendations: Depending on the cause, your doctor will make specific recommendations to address the underlying condition.
