These goals could be achieved with the use of the sulfosalicylic acid test; this chemical reagent is able to produce protein precipitation through urine acidification ant it provides prompt results.
The major objective of this study was to determine the reliability and accuracy of the sulfosalicylic acid test in the fast measurement of proteinuria.
The sulfosalicylic acid test is useful for a quick diagnosis of proteinuria.
Contrariwise, sulfosalicylic acid test can be performed in random urine specimens obtained at admission.
The low negative predictive value found with the sulfosalicylic acid test, even in patients with hypertension, makes it necessary to confirm negative results with a 24 hour proteinuria determination.
The sulfosalicylic acid test is innocuous and easy to use and could become the ideal test under these circumstances (12).
