Are these bad results in my urine test or no? URINE EPITHELIAL CELLS-None seen Mucus, UA-Present BACTERIA IN URINE-Few

Are these bad results in my urine test or no? URINE EPITHELIAL CELLS-None seen Mucus, UA-Present 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 more

Mucus (Definition)

Like material that functions to moisten and protect inner body surfaces. The viscous slippery substance that consists chiefly of mucin, water, cells, and inorganic salts and that is secreted as a protective lubricant coating by the cells and glands of the mucous membranes. The free slime of the mucous membranes, composed of secretion of the glands, various salts, ...Read more

What does it mean to have WBC clumps come back rare in a urine test? Mucous - rare, bacteria- rare what does rare mean?

Urine tests: Often urine tests are contaminated by the bacteria and cells from around the vaginal area which can result in those type of findings. Unless you are having symptoms of a urinary tract infection, it is unlikely that rare bacteria and rare wbcs suggest anything. If in doubt, you can always repeat the urinalysis. ...Read more

I went for a urinalysis but I drank a lot and my urine was almost clear colored. Will the test be accurate as to bacteria in urine? Or too diluted?

I went for a urinalysis but I drank a lot and my urine was almost clear colored. Will the test be accurate as to bacteria in urine? Or too diluted?

Inaccurate: Too dilute urine may not provide accurate results and not just for bacteria. A usual specimen for urine analysis is the first voided sample in the morning. Talk to your doctor about repeating the test. ...Read more

Urine test states Bacteria UA=8817.8 What does this mean as it states normal is 0 to 358?

Urine test states Bacteria UA=8817.8 What does this mean as it states normal is 0 to 358?

Explanation: Urinalysis can be different quality. Clean catch usually contain a lot of bacteria and significant means only more or around 100000. Below this number do need treatment with antibiotics. In case of catheterisation urine should be clean. ...Read more

I got elevated erithrocytes level in macroscopic urine test (50/ul) but negative results for protein, bacteria, etc. Is that considered okay?

Abnormal: Erythrocytes, or red blood cells, should not be present in your urine. Something is causing bleeding but this could be anything from a clotting defect, infection, tumor, tuberculosis, and so on. You need to be seen by a urologist and thoroughly evaluated. ...Read more

Got a urine test while on Macrobid. Will bacteria show up if they are resistant to Macrobid? Are negatives likely to be false negatives?

Urine culture: Bacteria if infecting the urine and are resistant to macrobid will grow out in urine cultures while the patient is taking it. Negative urine cultures mean there is no current bacterial urinary tract infection and are valid. ...Read more

Microscopic urine test shows: rbc, ua my value 5-10 with standard range being 0-2, bacteria, ua showing rare, everything else is within normal range! ?

Microscopic urine test shows: rbc, ua my value 5-10 with standard range being 0-2, bacteria, ua showing rare, everything else is within normal range! ?

OK/keep checking,,: This is near negligible but it's good to keep checking. You've had bleeding after menopause, hormone therapy, and polypectomy and dnc, all of which can result in bleeding. That this is so slight is very good, but get a repeat ua next exam or go in sooner if there's bloody urine as that might mean a kidney or bladder issue. Best of 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 did a urine test for medical check up. The results are mostly normal except bacteria+ (few) and ca. Oxalate+ (few). What does these mean? Thank you!

Needs checking: Few bacteria on a voided specimen (as opposed to a catheterized specimen) is usually meaningless but a urine culture might be ordered by your doctor. The calcium oxalate crystals could mean a stone somewhere in your urinary tract. That should be checked radiographically. Good luck. ...Read more

Contaminated: The epithelial cells tell me that there was some contamination of your sample. Just being a woman makes it more difficult to give a clean-catch urine. You may want to repeat it, perhaps next year or earlier if you physician advises. ...Read more

UA: These findings are not diagnostic of anything, a Urinalysis is usually done for urinary complaints, the few findings you related do not indicate an infection. The calcium oxalate crystals are excreted in the urine and make up the most common kidney stones. The rest of the urinalysis would be helpful, but these are not indicative of anything. ...Read more

Vag lab test due to frequent urination and bloated belly. Urine test neg. Do "moderate" pmns and "few" bacteria mean anything? Treated for trich.

Vag lab test due to frequent urination and bloated belly. Urine test neg. Do "moderate" pmns and "few" bacteria mean anything? Treated for trich.

Foreign language!: Lab language is like a foreign language. Pmns are 'polymorphonuclear neutrophils, ' and they are a type of white blood cell that fights infection. That they were moderate in amount may have meant that they were fighting off infection (doing their job). 'few' bacteria is probably normal. Remember that we have normal bacteria in the vagina, throat, bowel, etc. Our urine is supposed to have none. ...Read more

What does it mean when there is WBCs in my R/M urine test...but no bacterial growth after 24hour incubation in C/S test?

Maybe nothing: You should be evaluated for tuberculosis since you are in the Middle East. But I would recommend obtaining a Catheterized urine specimen. Most of the time WBCs without growth is from improperly collected urine specimen with vaginal contamination at the time if collection. ...Read more

What is a urine test "casthy" and "urobiln" mean or look for? Also what does "mucous" and result many mean?

Sounds like: You are reading from a urinalysis report. Hyaline casts are visible under microscope when protein and kidney cells form into a cylindrical shape and get excreted in urine. It can happen when you have abnormal amount of protein in urine or dead cells in kidney. Urobilinogen is urine form of bilirubin which is elevated when you have jaundice. Many means more than few. Ask your doctor for detai. ...Read more
