    Is it possible that the test you refer to is for UREA which is part of the blood test not a urine test?

    Urea is the final breakdown product of the amino acids found in proteins. Nitrogen in the form of ammonia is produced in the liver when protein is broken down. The nitrogen combines with other chemicals in the liver to form the waste product urea. The urea is released into the bloodstream and carried to the kidneys where it is filtered out of the blood and excreted in the urine. Healthy kidneys remove more than 90% of the urea the body produces, so blood levels can show how well your kidneys are working. There is no point in measuring urea in urine because it is supposed to be there.
