Doctor insights on:
Suggests contamination with urogenital or skin flora.
>100,000 CFU/ml Lactobacillus species.
20,000 CFU/ml mixed gram positive flora.
What's it mean?
Means contaminated: Urine specimen from the surrounding area around urethra (opening where the urine comes out from). You may want to repeat the test , if your doctor still wants that, get a clean catch specimen, which entails cleansing the area first, passing some urine, then obtain a midstream urine sample, follow the lab instructions for that, best wishes ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bacteria from bowel: Mixed means more than one species of bacteria eg e. Coli (most common bacteria both in bowel/stool & in utis), enerococcus, proteus etc. Are amongst others. Sometimes indicate a contaminated urine specimen because more than one type of bacteria is present, but can sometimes be cause of a uti. Culture always worth repeating if mixed. ...Read more
Urinalysis culture? 10,000-50,000 CFU/mL of Mixed nonuropathogenic Gram positive flora. May represent colonizers from external and internal genitalia?
20, 000 -30, 000 cfu/ml mixed gram positive flora multiple organisms isolated, no predominance. What does this mean?
final report microbiology results
50, 000-75, 000 col/ml mixed gram positive flora
is this normal or a uti?
No: Lactobacillus species are in cultured unpasteurized yogurt. In your gut you have hundreds or thousands of different organisms all in competition with each other, including candida. When the relative numbers of these are disturbed the candida can be there in greater number & more likely to produce infection elsewhere. The lactobacilli may, by competition, decrease the number of candida. ...Read more
What do these results mean... Urine Culture, Routine (LC) ... Mixed Urogenital Flora 10,000-25,000 colony forming units per ML?
Urine Culture: You have "normal" bacteria which are not though to cause a disease (like a UTI) that grew from the culture. We have bacteria all over our body including the urological and genital areas that normally grow there. If you disagree and feel like you have a UTI, you can get the test repeated or look for other causes. ...Read more
Urine culture states mixed urogenital flora 50,000 - 100,000 colony forming units per mL. what does this means?
Gram Stain1+ Squamous Epithelial Cells
2+ Polymorphonuclear Leukocytes
2+ Mixed Gram Positive Organisms
2+ Normal Flora
Is this normal.
Non diagnostic : The squamous epithelium means the sputum came from mouth not lungs (no squamous in lungs/bronchi) but leukocytes means infection. So, this sputum has infection but can't use it to diagnose due to contamination from mouth normal saliva that has usual mouth bacteria (called normal flora). Actinomycosis is being appropriately treated with penicillin. Discuss with your doc to see if need sputum resent ...Read more
Does the "beneficial bacteria" in yogurt kill candida albicans overgrowth in your intestinal tract?
Candidal overgrowth: This urban myth has not been scientifically proven, but it has not been disproved. The "balance" between bacterial flora and yeast cells in the intestinal tract (colon) is generally regulated by what you eat. If you choose to add unpasteurized yogurt to your diet it may well change the character of your stools, since it contains lactobacilli. Same available as a probiotic for oral use. ...Read more

Polymorfic flora with preponderance cocobacillus gram negativ
with suggestive appearance of bacterial vaginosis ("clue cells").What it means?Thank you
Abnormal flora: It sounds like your vaginal bacterial balance is out of whack. You may need some antibiotics, and i would follow that up with a vaginal probiotic to help build up your healthy bacteria. Your doctor should know what to prescribe. When you've completed that treatment, you can try going to whole foods to find a "vaginal" probiotic. (it won't help much to take it orally. Must insert vaginally). ...Read more
What does this urine test result mean? <50,000 col/ml Mixed flora isolated. Mixed organisms indicated probable contamination not due to infection
I'm having frequent urination. Culture showed 10,000-50,000 CFU/mL of Mixed non-uropathogenic Gram positive flora. Im taking macrobid. Is this a UTi?
Probably no UTI: This culture result does not suggest UTI, although there are exceptions. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
Unclear: Although there is a good theory that probiotics may help recurrent cases of bacterial vaginosis studies on probiotics in general have shown limited results. ...Read more
Received urin culture results . Does this mean Infection or no infection?
Value: 50,000 - 100,000 cfu/ml of mixed flora
Here are some...: The reported findings suggest possible contamination during urine collection, but may be still significant in UTI. Thus, always correlate the findings with clinical profile not by number alone. So, at times, empirical short-term antibiotic use is till warranted. More on UTI?
