Burning urination. Trace blood/protein in U/A. Negative culture. Urine was in bladder for 3 hrs before sample. Was that long enough for accurate test?

Get urine rechecked: With trace blood in urine, would make sure that a microscopic analysis was done to prove that there was truly blood in the urine as dipstick testing can produce false positives at times. If micro exam not done, repeat urinalysis with this. Also, would get urine tested for T mycoplasma/ureaplasma organisms as this can cause urinary discomfort as well. ...Read more

Had blood and urinalysis 7/15. Blood work was all normal but urine showed creatinine level of 409, trace protein, trace leukocyte esterase, WBC, hyali?

Stop worrying: I understand you have fibromuscular dysplasia of the renal arteries and hope this can be addressed. The urine creatinine, trace protein and hyaline casts are non-issues, the trace of leukocyte esterase and white cells (unless very numerous or you have symptoms of infection) are likely contamination, and if your physician is not concerned, I would not be either. Best wishes. ...Read more

Severe low back pain. Blood & protein in urine with dehydration. Walk in clinic stated kidney stone?

I had echo for a new heart murmur that appeared 6 months ago. I was told that I am fine. I have fatigue, fever, splinter nail hemorrhages and blood+protein in the urine. Could it still be endocarditis despite the normal echo?

I had echo for a new heart murmur that appeared 6 months ago. I was told that I am fine. I have fatigue, fever, splinter nail hemorrhages and blood+protein in the urine. Could it still be endocarditis despite the normal echo?

Absolutely: You have endocarditis and need to be seen and treated by infectious diseases experts asap. Echocardiography, even if done at its best, does not exclude the diagnosis and you have most of the criteria. There are many cases of culture-negative endocarditis. If you are not being seen by an id expert you need to do that now. There are serologic studies to identify organisms (like coxiella burnetti). ...Read more

Having said that, sometimes, in certain cancer like myeloma, a high protein level can be seen that is associated with presence of cancerous protein (monoclonal protein). The high blood protein itself- by all means- is not a sign of hidgkin's lymphoma. ...Read more
