Using UITest to exercise for memory leaks

We suspect we've got a memory leak in our application - either as part of our Xamarin.Forms implementation, or part of Forms itself. Hopefully not the latter.

I've been using UITest to exercise the app - to go back and forth between two specific pages (involving a push/pop on/off the navigation stack), and can see we do almost definitely have a leak.

My question is - can UITest itself be muddying the waters here, by holding references to our app's pages/resources so that they might leak?

If so, using UITest in this manner isn't necessarily helpful - as it is affecting the app itself.

Is there any knowledge/advice on whether UITest may be having a detrimental effect on memory usage in the app?
