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?

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

OR - is this an indication of a kidney problem that is brewing -- producing protein spillage and red blood cells and white blood cells into urine? Interpretation of protein in urine requires a ratio: Protein-to-creatinine ratio -- did the MD assess this? ...Read more

Trace protein: Trace protein in the urine is never worth working up. You have a few more white cells than is normal but this may be vaginal contamination. The red cells and pH are within normal limits. ...Read more
