Specific Gravity (Urine)


Specific gravity is a unit-based measurement that compares a substance’s density to water’s. It’s one of the most important measures of kidney function because it tells your body how well your kidneys are managing your body’s water balance and how effectively your body is disposing of waste. Factors that affect urine concentration include your level of hydration, your hormonal balance, and your kidney function. Specific gravity (Urine), on the other hand, measures urine concentration. It helps you assess your kidney function and how well you’re hydrated.
