Blood In Urine High White Blood Cell Count
WBCs in urine: WBC's in the urine are commonly associated with infection or inflammation of the urinary tract. Urine infection (UTI), kidney infection (pyelonephritis), and kindey stones are common causes. Inflammation of the bladder wall (cystitis) is also common. Less common causes are things like nephrotic syndromes and allergic interstitial nephritis. ...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
I have slightly high white blood cell count and very high levels of protiens in my urine. What does this mean?
What does high white blood cell but no nitrites in urine mean? My urine culture came back clean but have high white blood cell count.
Can steroid abuse cause high white blood cell count and protein in your urine? My white blood cell count is 15
Maybe but...: Our first concern is to rule out a serious infection (is your peripheral smear abnormal? Are the white cells primitive / angry-looking? Do you have symptoms?) and real kidney disease (how much protein, is it mostly albumin?) I hope you'll reconsider anabolic steroid use (if it's this kind of steroid); every guy I know who's tried this has regretted it. ...Read more
Toddler had high white blood cell count in urine after fever of 102.5 for 5 days but no bacteria grew on culture. What could cause this?
Recurring utis, lower left back pain under rib cage, high white blood cell count in urine, nausea, weakness. Causes?
Pyelonephritis: It sounds like you have pyelonephritis/ renal infection. You could have infected kidney stones or an obstructing ureteral stone. You could have vessico-ureteral reflux or a large post void bladder residual. I would recommend that you see a urologist and get a renal/bladder ultrasound and voiding cysto-urethrogram. Good luck. ...Read more
Last two days fever but not know check blood test test result is white blood cell count high neutrophils high and lymphocytes low and urine albu pos?
Seems OK.: As long as you feel fine or are getting better these lab tests don't indicate much. Depending upon where you grew up and live in India these symptoms could represent serious disease, but the labs don't show anything specific. The way you feel should guide whether you need further testing. ...Read more
Lab data: Without a full medical history and physical exam cannot possibly theorize about what this may be. It certainly indicates a need for further investigation and should not be ignored. Good luck. ...Read more
Urine test showed white blood cells in urine but no infection. Blood test showed low white blood cell count. Any correlation?
No: They do not correlate.Get a more detailed answer ›
Can taking 1antibiotic &1 Cipro (ciprofloxacin) reduce white blood cell count in urine? Went to doc for UTI after taking those &said there weren't many Wh blood cells
Here are some. ..: It seemed you took 2 antibiotics since Cipro (ciprofloxacin) itself is an antibiotic. Finding WBC in urine suggests the presence of inflammation caused by bacteria, virus, stone, tumors, foreign body, after recent procedures, catheter, contamination at urine collection, etc., not necessarily by bacterial infection alone. Antibiotic is good only for the bacteria sensitive to it, not for anything else. So, don't... ...Read more
What could cause chronic high white blood cell reading. Anytime I get blood work for years my wbc is always high. Blood in urine always possitive too?
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, it would have helped to know the actual values. The normal values are the central 95% of a healthy population, by definition, 5% of healthy people with have an abnormal result on almost all tests.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

See below: Bubbles in urine or very frothy urine may be due to protein in urine, and possible kidney disease. Generally speaking there is no connection to a high red blood cell count in the blood. ...Read more
Is it a concern to have a glucose number at 94 and somewhat high glucose in urine? I don't feel bad. Also what does a high red blood cell count mean?
Random or fasting blood glucose of 94 is not abnormal. If it was fasting, you need to be careful.
High glucose in urine is of concern, even with "normal" blood glucose.
How high is the blood count?
PCOS is one of the risk factors for diabetes. It would be prudent to discuss these items with your doctor.

HIGH WBC >10.5k: A normal white blood count (WBC) is in the range: 4k--10.5k (4000-10, 500) in most labs around the country. So any WBC >10.5k is elevated. I see elevated wbc's all the time, so I recommend following it closely (perhaps rechecking in 1 month with 'a differential'). If you have symptoms of a blood disorder you may need further testing, now. ...Read more
See details: High white counts are be secondary to infection, certain drugs, diseases of the bone marrow, diseases of the immune system and even cigarette smoking. ...Read more
Nothing "happens" as a result of a high white count. The number of white blood cells on a typical blood smear is used as a tool to help diagnose many different medical problems. Generally white blood cells increase in response to an infection or physical stress. There are several types of white blood cell and
analyzing the percentage of each in the white cell count gives clues to the cause. ...Read more
Depends on reason: High white blood cell (WBC) count is the body's response to physical stress or infection. Symptoms (eg fever) generally are from the underlying cause of high WBC rather than from the high WBC itself. Reasons for elevated WBC can include infection, blood/bone marrow disorder, cancer, and treatment with steroids like prednisone. Sometimes, a WBC may be somewhat high with no clear reason or symptom. ...Read more
Elevated numbers: This result may (eg bacterial) or may not (eg stress response) suggest an infection since there is no clinical context. For example, a vomiting episode or initiation of a steroid medication can temporarily increase your white blood cell count - but that doesn't mean you have an infection. Try rephrasing the question with symptoms included in it. ...Read more
Yes: Forgive my frankness. A significantly elevated white count and symptoms lasting a month, without anything from a physician as to what's going on, should prompt you to seek a different physician with whom you have better rapport. Vague complaints and leukocytosis could be bacterial endocarditis, tuberculosis, or any of several other illnesses that must be diagnosed without delay. ...Read more
Usually bacterial: It's usually a bacterial illness that causes the symptoms you describe. But this can include anything form sinus infections, tonsillitis, ear infections, pneumonia, infection in the blood, urinary tract infections, appendicitis, meningitis, skin abcesses... The list goes on and on. You need a thorough assessment of associated symptoms and a physical exam to try and pinpoint your condition. ...Read more
Hematuria is the presence of blood in the urine. When you can see the blood, it's called gross hematuria. When the blood can only be seen under a microscope it is known as microscopic hematuria. Hematuria can be caused by kidney stones, kidney infections, urinary tract infections, an enlarged prostate, cancer, certain medications, and ...Read more
