Urine analysis and tests

Urine tests may not look as important as blood tests, but one test in particular is of great importance which is the detection of Bence Jones proteins that are also products of plasma cells that are filtered in urine. The level of such proteins can also serve to detect the severity of the condition and to categorize it as being in the MGUS, smoldering stage or multiple myeloma stage. Kidney functions can also be estimated by the level of creatinine in urine collected for 24 hours.
