Okay,...: Your UA is okay with good working ability of kidneys since urine specific gravity is hight at 1.030. More? Ask doctor timely for detail.

Myoglobinuria: A urine positive for hemoglobin, but negative for microscopic rbc would be suspicious for myoglobin which reacts with the dipstick test for hemoglobin and may reflect rhabdomyolysis.
