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

Hazy urine analysis: Now, set up an appointment with your son's pediatrician, if you don't have one, to review the results. Hard to do a diagnosis without seeing your son, in person, and all the lab results. ...Read more

Hi, I have cervix erosion. In urine analysis RBC - 2-3 WBC 2-3 epithelial cells 6-8. Is it normal?

Yes, by number...: These findings of urinalysis could be acceptably normal for you, but always wise to correlate with individual clinical profile. More on possible UTI or hematuria? Go to http://formefirst.com/onUTI.html & http://formefirst.com/hematuria.html. Best wish to health.... ...Read more

I am having pus cells 25 leu/ul and epithelial cells 1-2 HPF my doctor has advised me to take Solicept 5mg. I am experiencing mild leakage of urine .

UTI?: Solicept (solifenacin) is a drug for overactive bladder, a common explanation for urine leakage in women. However, elevated white blood cells (pus cells, leukocytes) in urine suggests urinary tract infection. Probably your doctor has checked you for UTI, but check back wtih her if any uncertainty about it. Good luck! ...Read more

I have pus cell is 0-2/hpf and epithelial cells 1-2/hpf in urine test and also found few bacteria?What is this

I have pus cell is 0-2/hpf and epithelial cells 1-2/hpf in urine test and also found few bacteria?What is this

Essentially normal: A urine sample is 'allowed' to have up to 5 pus or WBCs per high power field (hpf). Epithelial cells are just skin cells, so you're allowed to have some of those too. Bacteria are often present in the environment and may have gotten picked up here in your urine sample. (After all, it's food for them). I would try to correlate this lab report with whatever symptoms you may or may not have. See doc ...Read more

I have 1-3 hpf pus cells in my urine. I'm a female 25 years old. I'm also experiencing lower back pain. few amorphous and epithelial cells and moderat?

Urine culture: Your doctor may want to consider a urine culture to determine if there is an infection present. Low back pain is a very complex issue with a very long list of possible causes. Consider a follow up visit to go through the history and exam in detail ...Read more

I have urinalysis test results with cloudy urine, mucus present, wbc >30 WBC Esterase +3 epithelial cells non renal >10 I don’t have any UTI symptom?

Why was UA done?: 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, a person can have urinary infection and not have symptoms. Please discuss the results with the doctor who ordered the test.
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.

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

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

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: 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

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.
