What does it mean if you have positive amorphous urate?

See below: Many patients will see a note of amorphous urates on their laboratory results. Since the name sounds very clinical, it can understandably cause concern for patients. However, this is an extremely common finding that has nothing to do with your body, but rather, with the refrigeration process of the urine sample.

The amorphous urates can sometimes “stick” to mucus threads or casts in your urine, thus making diagnosis of the real problem a bit trickier. Fortunately, laboratory professionals have ways to separate the amorphous urates from the other parts of the urine, thus giving a more accurate picture of what your health is really like. ...Read more

Consult: Children alkaline phosphates levels are much different from adults and can be quite high due to their growth spurts.

I would recommend to consult pediatric hematologist to see if any other tests are necessary. ...Read more
