Urine (Definition)

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

Fever and urine in orange color -pus cells are 8-10/Hpf and epithelial cells are 6-7/Hpf in complete urine examination.

Fever and urine in orange color -pus  cells are 8-10/Hpf and epithelial cells are 6-7/Hpf in complete urine examination.

See answer: Your urinalysis may be indicative of either a urinary tract infection or normal vaginal contamination. The presence of only leukocytes (WBCs) in the urine has a poor predictive (<45%) probability for UTI and has resulted in unnecessary administration of antibiotics to one third to one half of treated patients. A urine culture is recommended and is the gold standard for the diagnosis of a UTI. ...Read more

From a Urinalysis test, a high protein count, with high(ish) numbers of squamous cells and UA hyaline casts were found. My urine has cloudy and odor.

From a Urinalysis test, a high protein count, with high(ish) numbers of squamous cells and UA hyaline casts were found. My urine has cloudy and odor.

See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, squamous cells suggest contamination of urine with vaginal material and a fresh specimen should be examined. Cloudy urine that is odorous suggests an infection. Please consult your doctor for clarification. ...Read more

Urine cytology test showed benign urothelial cells negative for malignancy, some red blood cells. Blood test-increase in neutrophils. Sould i worry?

Urine cytology test showed benign urothelial cells negative for malignancy,  some red blood cells. Blood test-increase in neutrophils. Sould i worry?

Urine Cytology: If the urine cytology provided a good sample, you needn't worry about a bladder tumor. The increased white cell count( coupled with the red cells in the urine) could signify a bladder infection or inflammatory process, but without further history, it is difficult to pinpoint. A simple urinalysis may help clarify whether you have a bladder infection or not. An increased WBC is entirely non-specific. ...Read more

What can atypical cells found in urine test indicate?

What can atypical cells found in urine test indicate?

Ask your doctor: The doctor who ordered this test is the best person to guide you. He/she is suspecting something wrong, now that you have something suspicious, further testing (?Cystoscopy) may be indicated. Atypical cells raise the suspicion of cancer but this is not a totally reliable test. ...Read more

Intermittent terminal hematuria,but dipstick negative. Could microscopic urianalysis reveal bladder cancer? If urianalysis negative, what other cause?

Cysto: Terminal hematuria is likely from bladder or urethra. Has your doctor suggested cystoscopy? I would not be worried about bladder cancer in a 25 year old but giving you a cause would be guessing. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can pneumonia cause atypical cells in a sputum cytology?

Can pneumonia cause atypical cells in a sputum cytology?

Yes: In short, yes, pneumonia can cause abnormal cells to show up on a sputum cytology- typically we see bacteria or fungus, both possible causes of the pneumonia. Did your doctor or the report tell you exactly what kind of abnormal cells are present? That can say a lot about the source of the abnormal cells. There are numerous other causes for abnormal cells on cytology so talk to your doc to clarify. ...Read more

Went for a microscopic urinalysis results - mucus present and urine culture- organisms recovered in low numbers. What do these mean? Infection?

Went for a microscopic urinalysis results - mucus present and urine culture- organisms recovered in low numbers. What do these mean? Infection?

Unlikely: Urine screening tests also look for other markers of infection like nitrite and leukocyte enzymes. If those were negative and urine culture had low number of bacteria, it is not likely to be infection. ...Read more

Pyelonephritis, infected kidneys and urinalysis indicated traces of protein. Are these worrying signs?

Pyelonephritis, infected kidneys and urinalysis indicated traces of protein. Are these worrying signs?

Make sure goes away: Typically with a pyelonephritis some protein is spilled into the urine because the tubules that are infected lose function and are unable to resorb protein spilled into the urine. Make sure the urine protein is gone after you complete your therapy. Obviously make sure that your symptoms of the kidney infection (aka pyelonephritis) goes away. ...Read more

Are these bad results in my urine test or no? URINE EPITHELIAL CELLS-None seen Mucus, UA-Present BACTERIA IN URINE-Few

Are these bad results in my urine test or no?
URINE EPITHELIAL CELLS-None seen 	
Mucus, UA-Present 	
BACTERIA IN URINE-Few

Not really: In a normal urine, there shouldn't be any epithelial cells. Trauma or infection can cause them to be present. Few bacteria are not necessarily a bad sign. There is a condition called asymptomatic bactiuria (which just means bacteria in the urine without there being an infection). I'm not very concerned about the mucus. This should all be correlated with your symptoms of course. ...Read more

What can be the cause of haematuria, polyurea and in urine microscopy pus cells(10 in number) epithelial cells, leucocytes?

What can be the cause of haematuria, polyurea and in urine microscopy pus cells(10 in number)  epithelial cells, leucocytes?

Could be infection: Sounds like it could be a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) But there are other possibilities. UTI's often show blood cells in the urine (hematuria) & leukocytes (white blood cells=pus=pyuria) are also present. However epithelial cells (skin cells) in a urine specimen can indicate that the urine specimen was not properly collected & has some cells from outside the urinary tract, too. Ask your doc. ...Read more
