The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of storage time on the number of leukocytes urine checked immediately (0 hours) and were kept 30, 60, 90, 120, 150 and 180 minutes at room temperature. Types of Research true experiment to investigate the result of a treatment, research conducted on four samples of urine of patients with diabetes mellitus who meet several criteria, namely blood glucose levels> 200 mg / dl and urine amount leukositnya> 30 cells / mm3, calculated using the Improved Neubauer . The result showed a decrease in the number of stored urine leukocytes 30 minutes = 10%, 60 min = 25%, 90 min = 32%, 120 minutes = 39%, 150 minutes = 43%, and 180 minutes = 51%. Values obtained by linear regression test p = 0.034 (<α = 0.05). There is a significant relationship between duration of storage of urine with urine leukocyte counts were immediately checked (0 min) and stored 30, 60, 90, 120, 150 and 180 minutes at room temperature.
