Liver Function Test Kit: What's the Result?


Do you have any of these symptoms?

1. Yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes. This condition is called jaundice.
2. Pain in the right upper abdomen accompanied by pain in the back.
3. Abdominal swelling.
4. Weakness and loss of muscle mass.
5. Light color of stool and/or dark color of urine.

The above symptoms are the first signs of a liver problem. The liver is the largest glandular organ of the body. It weighs about 1.35kg. It is reddish brown in color and lies on the right side of abdomen below the diaphragm.

Jaundice is considered the most significant among the usual symptoms. Jaundice is caused by when an excess amount of compound called bilirubin dissolves in fat layer under the skin.

In the intestine, bilirubin can be converted to a compound called urobilinogen by the act of intestinal bacteria. A small percentage of this compound can be reabsorbed into the blood stream. Increased levels of urobilinogen and/or bilirubin in blood will lead to its appearance in urine.

The BIOTEST Liver Function Test Kit contains to dip-and-read test strips and its main use is to check the bilirubin and uro-bilinogen in urine specimens as an aid in the diagnosis of liver and gall bladder problems.




I have discovered this test kit when I was buying my supplement at Watsons counter. I told myself, in my 20+ years of existence, I may already been abusing my liver and why not try the test. It is only sold for 100 Pesos.

HOW TO USE




Use the provided collection cup to collect the urine. Test the urine as soon as possible after collection. This procedure MUST BE FOLLOWED EXACTLY t achieve reliable test results.

1. Prepare the urine specimen.
2. Remove the strip from the pouch. Familiarize yourself with the position of the reaction area of bilirubin and uro-bilinogen. The beige reaction area is for bilirubin and the yellow is for urobilinogen. Also, familiarize yourself with the color chart on the box.




3. Dip the the test strip in the urine until the reaction areas are completely immersed for no more than 1 second.
4. Remove the dipstick from the urine and tap the strip on the rim of the cup to remove excess urine and place it horizontally with he reaction areas facing up.

5 Reasons Why Filipinos Shop From US Online Stores

For many Filipinos, the cure to acute boredom usually comes in the form of shopping – purchasing online or going to brick and mortar stores to shop. But now that online shopping is booming and Filipinos are choosing to click “Add to Cart” to save their time and energy instead of going out, their options have greatly increased. And where do they look for trendy, quirky, and cheap items? To online stores in the U.S, of course.

U.S. brands have long held the love of Filipinos. Aside from the bragging rights that come with shopping from the U.S., here are five more reasons why Filipinos just can’t get enough of shopping from online stores in the U.S.

1. GET ITEMS EXCLUSIVE TO THE U.S.

Sometimes product distribution is unfair, and we just have to live with that. But thanks to the magic of international shipping, items that would not have reached Philippine shores can now be used by Filipinos in the country. We can now get our own personal Google assistant in Google Mini or reinvent our daily snaps with Snapchat’s Spectacles(You can’t deny Spectacles looks cute!)


2. VARIETY AND WIDER SELECTIONS

People in the U.S. have it good with the unbelievable range of products available to them. For beauty junkies here, it was a milestone when Sephora.ph was launched more than two years ago, but a physical store is yet to come. Popular make-up brands Tarte and Urban Decay are not available here either. Choosing the perfect shade of lipstick and foundation is a guesswork, but we always come through because a person can never have too many lipsticks.

3. PRODUCTS ARE RELATIVELY CHEAPER

Why buy imported goods here for thousands of pesos when you can get one in the U.S. brand’s online store that’s cheaper by a mile? An online store in the U.S. will almost always have a sale running, just keep your eyes open. Take the Nike LeBron Soldier XI SFG Basketball shoes for example. It retails for Php7,195 in the Philippines, but you can buy it for Php4,386 (USD83.97) at Nike’s U.S. online store. That’s almost Php3,000 in savings!

Public but Private-like Resort: Handog Resort Review

Planning to unwind over the weekend but don't want to spend too much ₱? I have discovered an affordable resort that is just 2 hours away from Manila- Handog Resort and Events Place! :) 




Handog Resort and Events Place opened its door to public last December of 2017. Yes. Beginner in the business. In fact, 50% of their rooms for accommodation are still under construction.


They are absolutely one of the most affordable resorts in Metro and I believe in Cavite. For just 120 Pesos for Adults and 80 Pesos for Children, you can already enjoy their amenities from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. These amenities include:

1. (1) Pool for Adults & (1) Pool for Children



2. Comfort Rooms and Shower Rooms

Unlike other resorts, aside from common, they have private shower rooms. It means you can enjoy taking a bath alone without thinking that someone might be watching you. Lol. Clap** Clap**


3. Grill Station and Sink for washing dishes 



You can bring food inside without CORKAGE FEE!! Yey! :)
