It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more

Kidney Stone Risk: This occurs when level of uric acid is elevated in blood causing increased excretion in the urine. The biggest risk is of kidney stones. Treatment includes reduction of uric acid level with drugs such as allopurinol, increased water intake, and low purine diet. ...Read more

Don't think: Pain is related to urate crystals. Right lower abdominal pain could be infection, kidney stone, appendicitis, ovarian cyst, ectopic pregnancy, ileitis, shingles, etc. Some of these conditions could be serious, so you should consult with your doctor. ...Read more

What mean that urine albumin trace pus cells 12-15 epith. Cells+++ crystals amorphous bacteria present?

What mean that urine albumin trace pus cells 12-15 epith. Cells+++ crystals amorphous bacteria present?

Urinalysis: Trace albumin means little or nothing. The presence of trace pus cells is probably from a poorly collected specimen contaminated by vaginal secretions, as suggested by the epithelial cells. The amorphous bacteria is also a result of contamination. To be effective in helping diagnosing UTI this should be an assisted clean midstream urine specimen. ...Read more

I have frequent and excessive quantity of urination and now I have urine test report which says amorphous phosphate crystals (4+ per/HPF).?

Here are some. ..: The presence of amorphous phosphate crystals is common while urine is alkaline; it is not clinically significant as long as other parameters in UA from properly collected specimen are unremarkable. As to frequent urination, have urologist check if your bladder holds or empties urine well or not, and how kidneys work. As well, self-watch of overdrinking or consuming bladder irritants such as coffee ...Read more

My urinalysis good except; urine color:yellow. Appearane:turbid. Rbcs: 9 (normal is 3/microliter)crystals: amorphous urates abundant. Epithelial:moderate?

My urinalysis good except; urine color:yellow. Appearane:turbid. Rbcs: 9 (normal is 3/microliter)crystals: amorphous urates abundant. Epithelial:moderate?

Contaminated: The color is fine; the urates precipitating may have caused the cloudiness and really mean nothing. The epithelial cells indicate likely contamination and this makes the reds less worrisome. Is your physician concerned? The most i'd do is repeat unless there's an actual reason to worry. ...Read more

Does high monocytes and low amount of WBC in blood test indicate infection? And what does high amorphous sediment in urine test mean?

Does high monocytes and low amount of WBC in blood test indicate infection? And what does high amorphous sediment in urine test mean?

These mean nothing: Only a very high absolutely monocyte count is of any concern if you feel well, and low WBC is of concern if and only if lymphs or neuts are way-way low. If you're sick, this whispers "rule out typhoid". Amorphous sediment is simply stuff that was soluble at body temperature but crystallized as the urine cooled. It means nothing at all. ...Read more

My urine has large urine amorphous sediment, small urine calcium oxalate crystals, small bacteria, small mucus, trace protein and sp grav 1.030?

Sounds normal: All these are common and normal. Your urine is quite concentrated, probably due to limited fluid intake before it was collected; this probably explains the trace protein, which is the only thing mentioned that might be considered slightly abnormal. Discuss with your doctor, but I see no cause for worry. ...Read more

I have crysals in my urine and my stomache stays blotted and at times it hurts?

Kidney stone risk: Hi. Without knowing more (types of crystals, chemical composition), I'd say you may be at increased risk of kidney stones. That would not be expected to masquerade as stomach pain; it's usually back pain and pain with urination and blood in urine. Maybe the crystals mean nothing, however. Talk with your doc who ordered the UA/micro to see if any further workup is warranted. Good luck! ...Read more
