Hello.welcome.A simple urine exam tells so many things about our body that it can't be imagined by a non medical person.Your doctor has done rightly to ask for this test to be done.Good luck.

Thanks for query,
You are right both are not connected so one may feel wondered urine examination in throat infection.
I think there are 2 possibilities,
1,Routine check of urine.
2,urine check up for presence of urine sugar.
Ok and bye.

Welcome to HCM.
Recurrent sore throat and common cold is sugestive of some allergic episodes.
Try to find out the allergy.Avoid cold drinks,chilled drinking water,oily foods,do regular warm water gargle,wear hand ki. on face during two whl driving.
Blood invesigation is must to rule out allergy.(eosiophil count).Urine investigation has relation regarding sore throat.
Consult ENT for better guidance and medical management.

Sore throat and common cold are commonest presentation of a viral fever, and viral fevers are known to reduce immunity to some extent leaving the body prone to infections, better to get it tested , may not be mandatory
