What is a crystal in urine test?
Your urine contains many chemicals. Sometimes these chemicals form solids, called crystals. A crystal in urine test looks at the amount, size, and type of crystals in your urine. It's normal to have a few small urine crystals. Larger crystals or specific types of crystals can become kidney stones. Kidney stones are hard, pebble-like substances that can get stuck in the kidneys. A stone can be as small as a grain of sand, as big as a pea, or even larger. While kidney stones rarely cause serious damage, they can be very painful.

Other names: urinalysis (crystals) microscopic urine analysis, microscopic examination of urine
What is it used for?
A crystal in urine test is often part of a urinalysis, a test that measures different substances in your urine. A urinalysis may include a visual check of your urine sample, tests for certain chemicals, and an examination of urine cells under a microscope. A crystal in urine test is part of a microscopic exam of urine. It may be used to help diagnose kidney stones or a problem with your metabolism, the process of how your body uses food and energy.
Why do I need crystals in urine tests?
A urinalysis is often part of a routine checkup. Your health care provider may include crystals in urine test in your urinalysis if you have symptoms of a kidney stone. These include:
  • Sharp pains in your abdomen, side, or groin
  • Back pain
  • Blood in your urine
  • Frequent urge to urinate
  • Pain when urinating
  • Cloudy or bad-smelling urine
  • Nausea and vomiting
What happens during crystals in urine test?
You will need to provide a sample of your urine. During your office visit, you will receive a container to collect the urine and special instructions to make sure the sample is sterile. These instructions are often called the "clean catch method." The clean-catch method includes the following steps:
  1. Wash your hands.
  2. Clean your genital area with a cleansing pad. Men should wipe the tip of their penis. Women should open their labia and clean from front to back.
  3. Start to urinate into the toilet.
  4. Move the collection container under your urine stream.
  5. Collect at least an ounce or two of urine into the container, which should have markings to indicate the amount.
  6. Finish urinating into the toilet.
  7. Return the sample container as instructed by your health care provider.
Your health care provider may also request that you collect all urine during a 24-hour period. This is called a "24-hour urine sample test." It is used because the amounts of substances in the urine, including crystals, can vary throughout the day. Your health care provider or a laboratory professional will give you a container to collect your urine and instructions on how to collect and store your samples. A 24-hour urine sample test usually includes the following steps:
  • Empty your bladder in the morning and flush that urine away. Record the time.
  • For the next 24 hours, save all your urine passed in the container provided.
  • Store your urine container in the refrigerator or a cooler with ice.
  • Return the sample container to your health care provider's office or the laboratory as instructed.
Will I need to do anything to prepare for the test?
You don't need any special preparations for crystals in urine tests. Be sure to carefully follow all the instructions for providing a 24-hour urine sample.
Are there any risks to the test?
There is no known risk of having crystals in urine tests.
