How to figure out the normal range of epithelial cells in urine?

What type?: There are a number of different types of epithelial cells that may be present in the urine. Squamous cells indicate contamination with skin or vaginal contents. None of the other epithelial cells are not normally present in urine. ...Read more

Contaminated urine: If the urine was collected using good cleaning prior to urination, then it is not normal. If a woman does not use a good clean catch technique then the urine can be contaminated from surrounding secretions. There being more epithelial cells than blood cells indicates that this was most likely a contaminated urine specimen. The urine test should be repeated using good clean catch technique. ...Read more

Most likely: There are always few sloughed epithelial cells from the lining of the urogenital tract that are dragged by the urine. If you are otherwise healthy with no urinary tract symptoms then it is within normal limits ...Read more

Is this normal?

3-4-0-2 HIKE!!!: If you don't have any symptoms I wouldn't worry. If you have symptoms, like PWP (Pain While Pissing) I'd need to know a little more about you. There could be lots of reasons to get your urine tested and you didn't say why. Something leaking out?Stain your underwear? Feeling sick (nausea, dizzy, etc)? Fever? Pain elsewhere? Peeing more or less than usual? But just 3-4 per hpf is not too impressive. ...Read more

Is this normal?

Normal: Your urine is fairly dilute with a SG of 1.010. Epthelial cells are quite normal in a female. These came from your vagina. There would likely be less or no epithelial cells if your labia were widely separated & you caught a mid-stream specimen. No RBCS, WBCs or bacteria is excellent. Good Luck, no cause for any concern ...Read more

Constipation: if your constipation has improved, then you likely have nothing to worry about now. If constipation is frequent, I would increase the amount of fiber in your diet for the long run. Consider a fiber supplement such as Metamucil. If you do, increase your fluid intake also. You should have a colonoscopy at age 50, or sooner if you have chronic bowel problems The, urine results were fine. Good luck. ...Read more

Microscopic Hematuri: I am assuming it is a clean catch specimen. The AUA defines microscopic hematuria as >= 3 RBC's per hpf in 2 of 3 correctly collected specimens. A second clean catch specimen should be obtained 48hrs after any rigorous exercise, sexual activity, menstruation, or trauma, along with a history and PE to rule out illnesses of the urinary tract. ...Read more
