500 Leukocytes In Urine
Leukocytes = WBCs: White blood cells in the urine indicate that an inflammatory or immune system reaction is taking place. Normally there should be none or a very tiny amount. This finding needs to be looked at with other lab findings and clinical context such as symptoms, physical exam and so on. Please see your doctor for more info.
Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more
I have 500+++ leukocytes in my urine but no nitrite in it what could that be I got stomach cramps, pain in my back, and when I pee my stomach cramps?
I am 60 years old lady Recently my urine sample showed leukocytes 500. Urine culture is negative. Ultra sound of KUB is normal. Kindly adise?
Voided vs cath'd?: If your specimen was a "voided" one (as opposed to 1 obtained by catheterization), likely it was contaminated with vaginal secretions which include WBCs.
Usually normal: Leukocyte esterase released by lysed neutrophils and macrophages is a surrogate marker of the presence of white blood cells (WBCs). Leukocyte esterase suggests that there are white blood cells in the urine. Trace means few WBC produced small amount of leucocyte esteraseSee 1 more doctor answer
Stone?: Some bacteria like Proteus associated with Struvite stones produce an enzyme called Urease which increases urine pH and can produce white cells or leukocytes in the urine. This is one possibility. The second is that you are taking a medication that alkalinizes urine. Please review your med list.
All urine results, neg, but LEUKOCYTE ESTERASE shows MODERATE. What does this mean? Last time it was SMALL/Clear. This time MODERATE/SLIGHTLY-CLOUDY.
Urinalysis: Cloudy urine and urine containing white blood cells (leukocytes) don't necessarily signify a urinary tract infection. The white cells may be contaminants from a vaginal infection or discharge. A clean catch urine culture would rule in or out a urinary tract infection. If you have a vaginal discharge, see your gynecologist and he/she can order any appropriate urinary tests if no vaginal infection
Hi my urine is showing positive leukocyte Estrada +3 also also 20/40 WBC any ifnfo would be greta?
Infection: Those findings are concerning for infection. Knowing the rest of the results of the uti analysis as well as the results of a urine culture would help in finalizing the diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
Should I be concerned if my leukocyte esterase result was 500 and blood number in urine was 25? If so what could be problem?
Infection: Elevated leukocyte esterase and blood in the urine can indicate infection. Hopefully your doctor sent the urine for a culture and sensitivity to find out the cause of the infection.
History of kidney stones. Intermittent flank pain and pain below rib cage. No UTI symptoms, but home urine test showed 500+ leukocyte and no nitrate?
Urine dip help: You report you took abx 1 month ago and did a urine dip that was trace positive for leukocytes. Of importance -- did you have any sxs of UTI at either of these times? Is urine dip +ve for leuk esterase or leukocytes? Any other cells? If + leukocytes and other cells and sxs, would get C&S and treat with appropriate abx. If just trace leuk est and no other cells or sxs, would follow and consult GYN.
My Urine routine test has leukocyte estersae present with RBC 2-3, pus cells 8-10 And epithelia cells 3-5. Iam really freaking out. Help.?
Recent urine test shows Leukocyte Esterase Small. What does that mean? Also shows Moderate Blood and Turbid appearance. Any ideas?
I had a blood test and urine test. Everything was normal, but my urine test showed leukocyte esterase said small (1+) (negative)a. I took another one he said 99% it will be fine. I'm freaking out.
Not to worry: The urine dip test is only a screening test. In women, it is not unusual to find a small quantity of leukocyte esterase in the urine which can be from vaginal contamination. A urine culture is the definitive test for urinary tract infection. In the worst case scenario if you culture is positive, a short course of antibiotic is usually all that is needed to cure it.See 1 more doctor answer
How abnormal is 5-10 for WBC in a urine test? I am curious about a small abnormality on my physical: the results of the urine chem/microscopy say “trace” of leukocyte esterase (reference range: negative) and a “flag” says ab. Following that the WBC is “ab
A: A few white blood cells in the urine of a female patient is very common, especially if the urine sample was not collected in particular manner. If a physician is interested in getting urine from a woman's bladder that has not been contaminated by passing through the vagina, which normally contains bacteria and white blood cells, the sample should be collected by asking the woman to use a antiseptic towelette to wipe the vagina while spreading the inner labia, then to urinate into the toilet for a second, stop urinating, then urinate into the specimen cup. If you didn't collect the urine in this manner, then it's more than likely that the white blood cells are from the vagina, not the bladder as are the bacteria and the leuk esterase. If it is noted that there were squamous epithelial cells in the urine, then it's even more likely, because those cells are found only in the vagina, not the bladder. Back pain is a common symptom, and occasionally it is the sole symptom of a urinary tract infection, but not usually. Most of the time people with utis will have pain on urination or frequency of urination, fevers, or pain on the sides of their back. If you have any of these (fever, urinary pain or frequency, or pain on the sides of your back) or if the middle back pain persists for more than a week, you should see a doctor. But the biggest thing here is, the physician who ordered the urine test should be available and eager to answer your question.
