Lit-Control pH Meter is the only patented, clinically tested medical device on the market developed to measure urinary pH in patients with kidney stones, ureteral catheters or cystinuria.

Thanks to its innovative technology, it has an incredibly accurate urinary pH measurement, equivalent to a laboratory pH meter.

Urinary pH monitoring provides the security and peace of mind needed to determine the degree of acidity of the urine at all times. A high or too low pH is often associated with an increased risk of certain pathologies, such as, for example:

• Renal lithiasis or kidney stones.
• Calcifications of urinary catheters.

It is recommended to maintain a preventive pH range of 5.5 - 6.2, placing the acidity of the urine in a range of non-formation of kidney stones.

• 1x Lit-Control pH Meter device (including pH sensor).
• 1x Bottle of calibration solution (valid for 1 month).
• 1x AAA 1.5 V battery.
• 1x Calibration beaker (C).
• 1x Test beaker (T).
• 1x Quick Start Guide.

1. The first time you use the Lit-Control pH Meter, you must unlock it using the myLit-Control App mobile application, available on your Apple and Play Store. You can also unlock it by manually entering the activation code that you can obtain in your private user area.

2. Calibrate the device by keeping the pH sensor in contact with the calibration solution inside the calibration cup (C). Stir the liquid slightly with the beaker tightly closed and press the button on the device to start the calibration.

3. Once calibration is complete, insert the pH sensor into the test cup (T) with the minimum amount of urine indicated on the cup. Stir the urine slightly with the cup tightly closed and press the button on the device to start the urine pH measurement.

4.When the measurement is finished and after the pH result is displayed, clean the sensor with water (sensor only) and reinsert it into the cup (C) with the calibration solution until its next use.

What is urinary pH?

Urinary pH is an indicator of the acidity or alkalinity of urine and provides information about the general state of health of our body. The average pH value is around 6.2. However, due to its oscillating behaviour, it can range from 4.5 to 8, depending largely on diet, waste products, metabolic disturbances, and other causes.

How is urinary pH currently monitored?

Apart from the pH Meter, there are two options for monitoring urinary pH: by test strip or by laboratory pH meter. The former are widely questioned by the medical community for their low accuracy and fiability for clinical decision making; while the latter lacks the portability necessary for urinary pH measurement to be made in freshly voided urine, which has physiological value.

How can urinary pH affect kidney stone formation?

• If crystals are present in the urine and the urinary pH is above 6.2, conditions are suitable for the formation of infectious or calcium phosphate or calcium phosphate-induced calcium oxalate stones.

• If crystals are present in the urine and the urinary pH is below 5.5, conditions are suitable for the formation of cystine or uric acid or uric acid-induced calcium oxalate stones.

• On certain occasions, or without pH alteration, the simple existence of crystals and the lack of physiological inhibitors of this crystallisation can favour the formation of kidney stones.

Correct control of urinary pH will reduce the risk of kidney stone formation.

How can urinary pH affect urinary catheters and urinary catheters?

After placement of a urinary catheter or double j catheter, urinary tract infection tends to occur and can lead in most cases to alkaline urine.

If the infection persists due to, among other things, the presence of crystals in the urine and an alkaline pH, it may lead to calcification of the catheter or catheter, even causing blockage and in some cases making it difficult to remove.
