UA stands for urinalysis.

 

Leuk Est U stands for leukocyte esterase. Leukocyte esterase is a urine test to look for white blood cells and other signs associated with infection. Leukocyte esterase is a screening test used to detect a substance that suggests there are white blood cells in the urine, which may mean you have a urinary tract infection. This test is part of the routine urine dipstick test. If this test is positive, the urine should be examined under a microscope for white blood cells and other abnormalities associated with infection.

I recently went to a new doctor and noticed he was located in something called the Professional Building. I felt better right away.

You can use Urinalysis Reagent Strips at home. They provide tests for glucose, bilirubin, ketone, specific gravity, blood, pH, protein, urobilinogen nitrite, and leukocytes.
