What does it mean when you have a high white blood cell count in your urine?

What does it mean when you have a high white blood cell count in your urine?

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.

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

I have slightly high white blood cell count and very high levels of protiens in my urine. What does this mean?

I have slightly high white blood cell count and very high levels of protiens in my urine. What does this mean?

Slightly high: Wbc count is usually insignificant, but the elevated urine protein needs to be evaluated soon for any indicators of renal insufficiency and treated. Contact the individual ordering the lab tests, .

Can steroid abuse cause high white blood cell count and protein in your urine? My white blood cell count is 15

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.

Recurring utis, lower left back pain under rib cage, high white blood cell count in urine, nausea, weakness. Causes?

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.

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?

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.

Low white blood cell count and blood in the urine?

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.

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

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...

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?

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?

How high?: 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. Practice safe sex.

Are bubbles in urine a sign of a high red blood cell count?

No.: Bubbles may be normal, unless the urine is "bubbling" as it comes out of the urethra. Pneumaturia may be a sign of a fistula or infection. If the bubbles develop in the bowl when the urine hits the water, this may be normal.

Do bubbles in urine have any relation to high red blood cell count?

Do bubbles in urine have any relation to high red blood cell count?

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.

Can bubbles in urine have any relation to high red blood cell count?

No: Related to force of urinary stream or possible proteinuria. Worth getting a urinalysis if you are now making lots of bubbles in urine & didn't before.

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?

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?

Incomplete info: 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. 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. 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. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.

How high is high white blood cell count!?

How high is high white blood cell count!?

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.

What? Causes a high white blood cell count?

High WBC: You could have inflammation rather than infection. A sed rate and CRP are helpful tests to rule this out. You may need to see a rheumatologist.
