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

Hi my urine analysis shows epithelial cells as 6-8/hpf. is it normal?

I am 55 female. urine report shows pus cell- 6-8/HPF, R.C.B'S- 1-2/HPF, EPITHELIAL CELLS 8-10/HPF. is tht normal?

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

I am 21 female. Urine test shows specific gravity- 1010 & Epithelial cells- 3-5/hpf. Is this normal?

I am 21 female. Urine test shows specific gravity- 1010 & Epithelial cells- 3-5/hpf.
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

I am a male aged 22 years
Urine test reports show that the pus cells are 3-4 hpf and epithelial cells are 0-2 hpf.
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

Constipation relieved after using medication for 2 days, it is normal now and feeling normal. Urine shows 5-6 epithelial cells and 2-3 wbcs, any prob?

Constipation relieved after using medication for 2 days, it is normal now and feeling normal. Urine shows 5-6 epithelial cells and 2-3 wbcs, any prob?

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

US shows increased bladder wall thickness (6.7mm) no stones or masses. Urine analysis is normal (pus cells 0-1) (few Epithelial cells). Infection?

Here are some...: You have no UTI, but most likely you have been developing a progressive poor bladder outlet relaxation, i.e., bladder neck and prostate urethra, which commonly comes along with aging or urethral stricture, i.e., scarring narrowing of urethra distal to prostate urethra.

Questionable: It is possible that you had some trauma in the right kidney area (right back) which caused a few red blood cells to appear in the urine. You need to follow up with your doctor especially if the pain continues. ...Read more

Is it normal to have epithilial cells 0-1 in urine?

Is it normal to have epithilial cells 0-1 in urine?

Yes.: That is not an abnormal number. Fyi, epithelial cells are more likely to be found in the urinalysis of women, and generally mean an improperly collected sample. Epithelial cells are not typically present in the urinalysis of men, and 0-1 means there were essentially none present. ...Read more
