Protein content should be quanitifed to better understand its pathology,(Nephriti/Nephrotic). RBC's in the urine can accompany protein in the urine if the kidneys are injured.

Would floating stool caused by fat sink after a few minutes? Worried its fat not gas. Had stool tests including fecal fat test but not 72hr one normal
Floater or Sinker: The sinkability of stool depends on the amount of air/gas, not the amount of fat, although vary fatty stools will tend to float. Are you having any symptoms? What was the reason you had test to begin with? Of course, celiac disease needs to be ruled out, but dietary changes which affect the population of gas forming bacteria in the gut can also be in play. Your md will sort it out. ...Read more
Could be many things: Overall having white blood cells(pus) and red blood cells in a stool test suggest some sort of inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. But it doesn't specify why this the case. It could be related to an infection, or from an autoimmune process(like ulcerative colitis) or from low blood flow to the intestinal tract. ...Read more
What is the significance of having fecal leucocyte antigen (lactoferrin) positive in stool test in a asymptomatic patient?
Are these bad results in my urine test or no?
URINE EPITHELIAL CELLS-None seen
BACTERIA IN URINE-Few
Not really: In a normal urine, there shouldn't be any epithelial cells. Trauma or infection can cause them to be present. Few bacteria are not necessarily a bad sign. There is a condition called asymptomatic bactiuria (which just means bacteria in the urine without there being an infection). I'm not very concerned about the mucus. This should all be correlated with your symptoms of course. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Positive ANA, Positive Smith antibodies, protein in urine 100, creatine in urine 186.

I have done stool re test , in this test result aremucus(+), pus3-4, acidic, vegetables(+++), starch(++), ph-?
Meaningless results: ...Without understanding the context in which your stool was checked, your presenting problems that prompted the need for medical advice, your risk factors, ; your underlying health history.

I did urine test and rbcs are 6-8 hpf , pus cells 2-3 hpf , some epithelial cells and few mucus are found in urine .. is that normal ????
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
Is a negative result on two separate qualitative fecal fat tests (one month apart) enough to rule out steatorrhea?
Too a large degree!: Most people diagnose themselves by seeing oil and fat in the toilet. The tests are fairly accurate, so I do not see it as a problem. It does not typically come and go, although severity might! ...Read more
Is it normal to show no white blood cells in a urine test when showing high levels of nitrates in urine test?
Worried about malabsorption (occ. Floating stools) had negative CT scan and qualitative fat test. Gastro. Dr. Said quantitative test unnecessary. Why?
