Quest offers the eMed® UTI Telehealth Kits™ (2-pack) which includes the eMed urinary tract infection (UTI) Test Strips. These test for white blood cells (Leukocytes) and Nitrite in urine. Detection of these substances in urine aids in the screening of urinary tract infections. The UTI Test Strips are packaged individually in foil pouches with desiccant. They are for over-the-counter, home use only.
Along with 2 tests, your purchase includes online observation from a trained telehealth proctor. When you’re ready to use your test, you’ll connect live with a telehealth proctor at eMed, LLC to enable proper collection instructions, improved confidence in your results, and a medication* if prescribed by an eMed clinician.
*Treatment availability is subject to a telehealth consultation with a licensed clinician, which is included with this Telehealth Kit. Not all persons may be eligible or qualify to receive a prescribed treatment. Included treatments are subject to change. To see a list of treatments that may be prescribed via the Telehealth Kit, please visit https://www.emed.com/pages/treatments. Please contact your healthcare provider if you are not prescribed treatment and are still not feeling well.

There are several factors that can increase your risk for getting a UTI, including:
- Having a UTI in the past
- Sexual activity, especially with a new partner
- Changes in the bacteria that live inside the vagina, which can be caused by menopause or the use of spermicides
- Age (older adults and young children are more prone to UTIs)
