Bacteria Rare In Urine
I have high sgpt result 114. 45u/l is this the reason why my urine slightly hazy, loaded with mucus threads and rare bacteria.?
Your liver function: Is high so your dr should consider stopping your crestor (rosuvastatin). Also get checked for viral and alcohol induced hepatitis, kidney problem etc. Follow up with your primary dr and cardiologist. Be motivated to quit drinking alcohol to prevent cirrhosis. God bless u! ...Read more
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
Microscopic urine test shows: rbc, ua my value 5-10 with standard range being 0-2, bacteria, ua showing rare, everything else is within normal range! ?
OK/keep checking,,: This is near negligible but it's good to keep checking. You've had bleeding after menopause, hormone therapy, and polypectomy and dnc, all of which can result in bleeding. That this is so slight is very good, but get a repeat ua next exam or go in sooner if there's bloody urine as that might mean a kidney or bladder issue. Best of luck. ...Read more
What does it mean to have WBC clumps come back rare in a urine test? Mucous - rare, bacteria- rare what does rare mean?
Urine tests: Often urine tests are contaminated by the bacteria and cells from around the vaginal area which can result in those type of findings. Unless you are having symptoms of a urinary tract infection, it is unlikely that rare bacteria and rare wbcs suggest anything. If in doubt, you can always repeat the urinalysis. ...Read more
Had a urinalysis with microscopic exam: Leukocytes Ester: Moderate, Bacteria, urine: OCC, Epethelial Cells, urine: Rare. What does it mean?
Yes I had a urinalysis and it said I have a trace of uleukocytes, uepithelial cells are few, bacteria rare, and I have blood in my urine, What could this mean? The doctor told me to drink more water.
Need more tests: I would recommend a cath urinalysis because you are a woman and sometimes urinalysis can become contaminated with vaginal cells. Then that urine needs to be sent for a urine culture and if positive treat for UTI. If neg and you still have blood then need to see urologist for further evaluation ...Read more
Micro urine test results wbc, 0 - 2, normal < 5 rbc, 0 - 2, normal < 3 squam epithel, rare bacteria, rare mucus 1+ concerns? Is ongoing monitor req?
Urine test : protein (1+), trace of blood, few bacteria, hyaline cast/lpf (0-1), mucus rare. RBC/hpf 3-4, WBC/hpf 4-6, should I be worried?
No: Even if this is not a contaminated sample, if you have no symptoms you are close enough to the reference range to consider yourself healthy. ...Read more
UTI vs STD: Urine is supposed to be sterile. And peeing/voiding is supposed to be painless. How do you know you have a little bacteria in your urine? Why were you checked? Most common cause of bacteria in urine is a urinary tract infection (UTI) either simple bladder infection or more complicated & serious kidney infection. Sexually transmitted diseases can also make your urine appear dirty. See your doc ...Read more
It might be infectio: Sometimes it is due to infection in the urinary bladder but it can also be due to poor urine sample collection. If you have any bladder symptoms like burning on urination or frequent urination, then you might have infection in the bladder. If you have no urinary symptoms, then simply repeat your urine test with a proper clean catch urine collection and get a urinalysis done one more time ...Read more
Doesn't mean much: Bacteria is sometimes found in urine for a variety of reasons. Bacteria is often a contaminant. Bacteria is only significant when the patient has signs and symptoms of infection (burning, frequency, urgency, pressure in the bladder, fever, etc.) or when the organism is clearly a pathogenic organism - such as pseudomonas - and has no business in the urine. ...Read more
Often not a concern.: When urine is studied in a lab (urinalysis and/or culture), the lab staff will study the urine under a microscope. They may see (or culture) bacteria. These may represent a true bacterial infection, or in some instances if they are very few in number and if there is no accompanying inflammation, the bacteria may be a contaminant from the skin from the time of specimen collection. Ask your doc. ...Read more
Dr I have some result her can youbtell me what they mean......Bacteria, urine hpf and iit sasaid standar: none/hpf. And your value is many?
Complex: This may depend on how the urine was collected, stored and how soon it was examined. Many bacteria per high powered field may suggest urinary tract infection, but this will depend upon symptoms and other factors. You need to discuss this with your doctor. It may mean nothing at all. ...Read more
If real, from skin: Most likely contamination from the skin, especially if your urinalysis has epithelial cells. If your urinalysis does not have epithelial cells, or if yo have symptoms such as burning when you urinate or the need to urinate more often, then then this may truly reflect a urinary tracy infection from these bacteria having ascended your urethra via your skin. ...Read more
Not much.: Bacteria in the urine as an isolated event is not very helpful or specific. This could be caused by a poor collection or by actual bacteria in the urine this does not necessarily indicate an infection. Urinary tract infection is usually heralded by pain urgency and frequency of urination ...Read more
That's all.: That seems to be enough. The standard urinalysis checks for all manner of other things - chemicals, cells, concentration, etc. ...Read more
Depends upon type.: In most instances, urine should not contain any bacteria, and the presence of bacteria might indicate an infection. Sometimes when a urine culture is collected, a few bacteria from the skin or end of the urethra may "contaminate" the urine. In such cases, bacteria may not indicate a real disease. Need to know type and # of bacteria and whether there are accompanying white blood cells in urine. ...Read more
I am a male 33 years, just got a urine culture done that says minimal bacteria under 10, 000...is that ok?
In hostel, pink stains in bowls of all common toilets Noticed pink ring around dried urine puddle on floor. Same reason as stains in bowl (bacteria?)?
Hmmm...: One cannot think too much into pink rings around people's dried urine puddles. Just presume toilet areas are a mess, full of poop germs. That means, if it's your toilet, clean it; if it's not your toilet, get in and out as fast as you can. If spending more any more than 1 minute thinking about toilet stains, one's problem is probably not the toilet stains. ...Read more
Urine bacteria: If the urine was collected correctly, bacteria in the urine is a sign of a urinary tract infection (uti). Urine is sterile and if there are bacteria in it, you will need to have a culture sent off to find out what antibiotic can kill the bacterium that is causing your uti. ...Read more
Bacteria: The first possibility is that it is a "dirty sample" meaning that bacterial contamination took place and it was not a clean catch urine. In the event that it was clean, the presence of bacteria along with other markers, symptoms, and so forth would give a better picture. The presence of wbcs, leukocyte esterase, and nitrites are common in urinary tract infections. So more info is needed. ...Read more
Possibly: Sex toys are best regarded as a potential source of germs and should be cleaned regularly with this in mind. Depending on where and how the toy is used you can traumatize the sensitive pee hole and introduce germs into that tube that can find their way to your bladder. It is prudent to empty your bladder after any play session to reduce that risk. ...Read more
Bacteria usually originate from the bowel, vagina, or skin as normal flora of the host.
Gram-positive organisms can include
staphylococcus saprophyticus (causative organism in 5% to 15% of utis) and
enterococcus faecalis it means urinary infection related to gram positive organism. ...Read more
No: It would prevent them from multiplying but it won't kill them ...Read more
