I have short breath for a week so i had some tests yesterday, protein ua 50mg/dl ketones 60mg/dl and trace in protein urine sulfasalicylic acid test?
See answer: Your urinalysis is likely normal and not indicative of a urinary or kidney problem. Ketones usually just indicate that you have not recently eaten and your body is burning fat (which produces ketones) rather than carbohydrates (sugar) for energy. Likewise , a small amount of protein (trace to 1+) is a common and usually insignificant finding, whereas, 2+ or greater often signifies renal disease. ...Read more
My blood and urine test result are worrying me. it shows high Uric acid levels and traces of blood in urine.
See below: 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, uric acid levels in urine are not meaningful, it is the blood level that counts. A few red cells in urine are not abnormal, and trace may be the same. It would be prudent to discuss the issue with your doctor who ordered the tests. ...Read more

Need a history: As a pathologist whose life focus has been lab medicine, i'm always reminding people that labs by themselves mean nothing. Plenty of people have an aso titer as high as yours, whether or not they've had strep throat recently; it's one piece of a puzzle. Whatever prompted ordering an aso (kidney? Joints?) is the key to specialist referral if your pcp can't answer. ...Read more
Daughter 2.5 yrs old has crystals in urine. Ultrsoundof kidneys normal. Urine analysis normal. But uric acid/ creatinine 1.1 and calcium/cr .26. Why ?
What's the worry?: Crystals precipitate in most people's urine as it cools and usually mean absolutely nothing. The amount of uric acid is mostly a function of its production which is mostly about diet and not a worry. Calcium / creatinine ratio in grams/grams of .260 is normal. Perhaps there is a misunderstanding. ...Read more

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
Slight foamy urine.spot urine test-protein 5mg/dl,creatinine 37mg/dl,albumin 2 mg/litre.Is it normal or proteinuria ?
Proteinuria: We generally calculate the urine protein to creatinine ratio and as long as the ratio is below 300 mg/g it is considered not significant (yours is only 135mg/g) so your proteinuria is not significant. But the Albumin level you mentioned, is it serum (blood) Albumin level? If yes, it is very low and unlikely! Please verify your Albumin level and it's source (blood or urine) . ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
