What does the urine on the FAA medical test for?

Ive heard varying things on this, and am curious as to what the urine testing on the FAA medical exams (1st-3rd class) check for. Some sources say its just a test for kidney function/diabetes. While other state that this is a drug test, which seems unlikely as It diesnt explicity state in the FARs that this is part of an exam conducted by an AME.

    The test is for kidneys, balder, infection, STD's, cancer, and so on, and can be used for drug testing which is kind of illegal with out telling you.

    It's testing for kidney problems and diabetes.

    It's not a drugs test, that is separate.

    A urine test is for diabetes. Diabetes is one of the conditions that restrict or preclude holding an FAA medical.
