Chyluria- Testing & Treatment

by admin on December 15, 2011

We have shown you how to test the chyluria, if patient has brought you white coloured urine sample, which may be chyle in urine. Chyluria is actually a white coloured urine, which may be due to taking fatty diet, or may indicate filariasis. To test you must mix equal amount of ether and urine sample, shake it well, you will see after some time it splits into 2 layers of urine and ether, but the white colour of urine goes away as fat gets dissolved. This gives you confirmation of chyluria. Treatment is performing retrograde pyelography and giving 21 days course of diethylcarbamazine in TDS dose along with multivitamins, since loss of chyle leads to deficiency of vitamins in body.
