The most important characteristic of babies bodies between birth and the age of 18 months is their intensive physical and mental development. It is, however, nearly impossible for them to communicate the source of discomfort or cause of pain they might feel.
According to statistics gathered by WHO worldwide, 5.9 million children under the age of five have passed away in 2015. More than half of those deaths were due to conditions that could have been prevented by taking simple and affordable measures.
Problems such as ketonuria, as well as abnormal pH and glucose levels, can be detected early on with timely screening of babies' urine. This simple analysis can help prevent or reduce lifethreatening risks of diseases such as diabetes, obesity, inflammatory processes or other non-infectious illnesses.
The colorimetric method (changing of the test strip color) allows parents to easily identify changes in their baby's health.
Diagnostic Diapers "Guarders" permit the quickest possible analysis of urine to be done at home, which measures the following parameters:
pH level, which reflects the general condition of the baby's body
presence of ketone, which identifies ketonuria
presence of glucose, which determines the state of carbohydrate metabolism
