A 30-year-old female asked:

I did a urine test for medical check up. the results are mostly normal except bacteria+ (few) and ca.oxalate+ (few). what does these mean? thank you!

Needs checking: Few bacteria on a voided specimen(as opposed to a catheterized specimen) is usually meaningless but a urine culture might be ordered by your doctor. The calcium oxalate crystals could mean a stone somewhere in your urinary tract. That should be checked radiographically. Good luck.
