Should womens vitamins change the color of urine?

They can. : Vitamin B12 (or multivitamins containing b12) can turn the urine a deep yellow, or even orange color depending on your hydration status.

My 2.5 yrs old daughter urine report. Color - pale yellow, appeatence - turbid, ph- acidic, specific gravity- 1.015, protein-traces, urine glucose-nil?

Nothing stands out: What you describe, except for the turbid appearance (cloudy), is normal. It sounds quite ok, but there must have been a reason for the doctor ordering the test. What were they looking for? Other things to look for are white blood cells, bacteria and red blood cells in the urine. These results could come from someone who does have a urine infection, as well as from someone who is totally normal. ...Read more

Unlikely: Urine dip is not the most specific test for UTI but when combined with symptoms of burning sensation, cramps, urgency, frequency, hesistancy it enhances the diagnosis. Otherwise without any symptoms, nothing too conclusive i would say. ...Read more

May be nothing: Around 1 person in 100 has a modest amount of blood in the urine over the lifetime. When tumors and stones are ruled out and there's no other medical cause of bleeding, this is best simply noted and ignored. The trace of bacteria are contaminants. ...Read more

My urinalysis good except; urine color:yellow.Appearane:turbid.Rbcs: 9 (normal is 3/microliter)crystals: amorphous urates abundant.Epithelial:moderate?

Contaminated: The color is fine; the urates precipitating may have caused the cloudiness and really mean nothing. The epithelial cells indicate likely contamination and this makes the reds less worrisome. Is your physician concerned? The most i'd do is repeat unless there's an actual reason to worry. ...Read more

Only cloudy urine & 30 ketones in urinalysis. Labs normal. No diabetes but have pancreas insufficiency. Eat healthy. What do results mean?

Only cloudy urine & 30 ketones in urinalysis. Labs normal. No diabetes but have pancreas insufficiency. Eat healthy. What do results mean?

Urine results: Your cloudy urine could indicate that you have a urinary tract infection (UTI). If you had one, you would have other symptoms such as burning and pain when you urinate. If you have those symptoms, get a urine culture. If not, observe. Ketones (K) in the urine are a sign of fasting. When you do not eat, your body turns to fat as an energy source and K is present in the urine. See your physician. ...Read more

Have cloudy urine, no smell, good color.?

Might be nothing: It could be nothing, but it could represent some protein in the urine. If it is fairly constant, you should see your doctor and have a urinalysis. Usually an infection will cause some burning and urgency to pee, but sometimes an infection can be without much in the way of symptoms, so get the urinalysis and maybe a culture to be sure. ...Read more

What does C1-10^COLONY COUNT= 1000-10000 mixed flora at final reading^L  mean, on a urine culture.

Urine culture: This is a contaminated specimen and it means absolutely nothing. What symptoms do you have, what does your urinalysis show, what were the results of your physical exam and basic lab tests? The internet is not a place in which to turn for a diagnosis. Good luck and you should discuss this with the doctor who ordered it. If still need results get a clean midstream catch into a sterile container. ...Read more
