Yes: Assuming you have true hemoglobinuria. You should see a doctor to determine the true cause of hemoglobin in urine. Blood transfusion and stenous excercise can cause transient hemoglobin in urine. Hemolysis,PNH, or infection (malaria),or kidney disease, or tumor can also cause hemoglobin in urine. In addition, high level hemoglobin in kidney itself can also damage kidney. ...Read more

In my urine test it showed positive with protein and hemoglobin, is this serious and what does it mean?

May need to recheck: Any blood in the urine can give rise to positive test for hemoglobin and protein. It is best to follow up on it as it means there is something wrong if the results are real. So you should get a repeat urinalysis done and then consult a kidney specialist if the results show any rbcs and or protein in your urine as it could mean intrinsic kidney disease like nephritis. ...Read more

On urine test results, urine hemoglobin=trace-intact, urine microscopic = indicated, wbc/hpf=0-3, rbc/hpf=0-3. What do these results & terms mean?

On urine test results, urine hemoglobin=trace-intact, urine microscopic = indicated, wbc/hpf=0-3, rbc/hpf=0-3. What do these results & terms mean?

Normal: The WBC and rbc are referring to the number of white blood cells and red blood cells seen in a range of microscopic fields of sampled by the lab technician. The number of these cells (0 to 3) for both types of cell is within the normal limits expected. These normal, scattered red cells are enough to cause a trace of hemoglobin on the chemistry test. So these are all normal results. ...Read more

On my lab work, one test said "HEMOGLOBIN UR: 2+". Can you tell me what this indicates? I was on last day of period but didn't see blood in urine cup.

Probably OK: Positive urine dip stik for Hemoglobin is common. Particularly if you were stillon your period. This also occurs with NSAIDS and blood thinners being most common. Not to overlook serious problems, I will repeat the test on 2-3 weeks and be guided by results. In your case at 45 repeat urinalysis in 2-3 weeks is best advice. If the positive test persists, more complete evaluation is next. ...Read more

No contrast.: Do you know why your urine and creatinine are abnormal? Treating that first, if you can, would be ideal. It looks like you should have an MRI without contrast to avoid Nephrogenic Fibrosing Dermopathy/Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis, debilitating conditions with no cure. ...Read more

Did blood work and urine sample for woman physical exam. Everything came back normal except for "hemoglobin 1+" in urine sample. What could this mean?

Did blood work and urine sample for woman physical exam. Everything came back normal except for "hemoglobin 1+" in urine sample. What could this mean?

Possibilities...: This means there was a small amount of microscopic blood in the urine sample. One of the most common reasons for a female is having your menses at the time the sample was obtained. Another common reason is if a catheter was inserted to obtain the sample. If neither of these explains it, it might be best to repeat the urine test and pursue further tests if the blood is still present. ...Read more

My son, 25yrs. Old, has an elevated creatine, low hemoglobin, brown urine, low rbc.  He has barretts, and possible precancer cells of distal esophagus?

Chronic kidney disea: Don't worry about barrett's for now. Focus on his chronic kidney disease which is diagnosed by high creatinine & leads to anemia (low hemoglobin & rbc). He needs to be evaluated & followed by his nephrologist (kidney specialist) who will recommend medications to control risk factors & prepare him for dialysis/transplant if condition worsens. ...Read more

Diagnosed with anemia. I take 65mg iron twice a day. Hemoglobin is now normal but RDW is 20.3 and RBC in urine is 3-5 (high)?

Diagnosed with anemia. I take 65mg iron twice a day. Hemoglobin is now normal but RDW is 20.3 and RBC in urine is 3-5 (high)?

May take time : for your RDW to normalize. Your hemoglobin will return to normal faster than your RDW. The RDW is most useful when it is reported with the MCV to determine the cause of anemia. I would also want to know WHY you became iron deficient. Since you are post menopausal, you should not really be losing a lot of iron. Have you had a hem-occult test? 3-5 RBC in a UA is not high, but it is not normal. ...Read more

Doubtful significanc: Tell us why you had your urine checked in the first place?. To resolve a medical problem we need a detailed history and also what the doctor's assessment was or is, so far?
