What does it mean to have mucus threads in my urinalysis?

What does it mean to have mucus threads in my urinalysis?

Usually nothing: Mucus frequently appears in the urine. If there are no symptoms, it is nothing. If you are concerned, you can have a formal urinalysis done by your primary doctor.

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 is pus 0-2, RBC 0-2, bacteria is few, epithelial cells few and mucus threads many in my urinalysis test result? Thanks!

Normal study: It is abnormal study. Many mucus thread means either normal (for the most part) or some irritation (even then non-specific). Always encouraged to drink 1-3l water per day. Have a good one.

My urinalysis has no bacteria, but does have mucus threads. What could be wrong?

My urinalysis has no bacteria, but does have mucus threads. What could be wrong?

Probably nothing: Mucous threads may appear microscopically in urine with or without infection. If you do not have other indications of infection this will probably be a normal variant.

Please interpret my urinalysis result:Mucus threads - occassional, Bacteria - rare, amorphous phos - few. Thanks?

Culture: Why was the urinalysis done? Are you on antibiotics? If not, it may be a good idea if you have symptoms to get urine culture. Amorphous phosphates in an alkaline urine (ph above 7) may indicate proreus uti. Talk to the doctor who ordered the test. Good luck.

Blood in urine: 16 to 18 RBC's in the urine indicates blood in the urine. Blood in the urine (unless it is menstrural blood) is not normal and should be evaluated. Possible causes include infection, stones, blood disorders, trauma and tumors. Your doctor can help sort this out.

My daughter urinalysis test says she had few bacteria, Epithelial cells, Mucus Threads and Amorphous Urates are RARE. What does it mean?

My daughter urinalysis test says she had few bacteria, Epithelial cells, Mucus Threads and Amorphous Urates are RARE. What does it mean?

Not much: The assessment of the findings depends a lot on how it was obtained. Most 6 yo females will squat and pee, with minimal preparation and give a sample representing a vaginal washout + bladder contents. All the elements in this report are normal for such a specimen. If prepared well and done by catheter, you expect less debris.

Urinalysis result; acidic reaction; 6 pH and 0-1 rbc, 1-2 pus cells, occasional squamous, few bacteria, rare mucus threads, rare amorphous urates, alarming?

Normal urine study: Those results are "within normal limits". You may want to drink a little bit more water to stay well hydrated. In the Philippines I recommend coconut water also.

In my Urinalysis, WBC is 2-3 /hpf, RBC is 1-2 /hpf, Epithelial Cells occasional, Mucus Threads moderate, Bacteria are few, Urates few.

Here are some. ..: All findings of UA as reported could be categorized as within normal limit with no clinical significance. I would recommend repeating UA from a properly collected fresh urine specimen and correlate the result with clinical pictures including history of diseases (including bladder function) or procedure of urinary tract; so the meaningfulness of UA can be deduced and applied to practical use.

I'm a SLE patient/female just want to ask about my urinalysis result. Epithelial cell:many -mucus threads:many bacteria:few. What does it mean?

I'm a SLE patient/female just want to ask about my urinalysis result. Epithelial cell:many -mucus threads:many bacteria:few. What does it mean?

Probably normal. ..: All findings as reported could be normal or unremarkable resulting from some degree of contamination during urine collection as commonly encountered in female patients, So, at most, it's a good idea to repeat urinalysis with carefully collected urine as professionally instructed. And you're okay as long as being comfortable and UA is unremarable. At times, urine culture is needed. More? Ask Doc.

Hi doc. Wana ask re:.urinalysis.  i have trace proteins. Many mucus threads. Rbc. 2-6 wbc 0-2 /hpf. Moderate epethial and few phospates? Is it ok?

Culture: Nonspecific findings. All is ok. A urine culture will be more definitive to let you know if these findings are due to infection. Most important is your symptoms. Any blood in urine (rbc) needs investigation, could be infection, traumatic or if over 50 and a smoker need to rule out cancer. Trace proteins can be a sign of other systemic disease, hypertension, diabetes, lupus etc..

My gf just had her mens. In her URINALYSIS, the reswult is PMN-2-4/hpf; RBC-40-50/hpf; Albumin-+3; Mucous Threads-many. Is the result bad?

No: It appears that she has some of the menstrual bleeding present and her urethra so the urine was contaminated with the menstrual flow if she does not have symptoms of a urinary track infection this is not abnormal

I had my ua just now, and the result is: Pus Cells 35-45; RBC 2-4; Eph many; Bac many; mucous Threads mod, Specific gravity 1.016; what does it mean?

See answer: Normal WBC count is 3-5 WBC/HPF. Elevated WBC, as in your case, indicative of either infection, inflammation, or vaginal contamination. A urine culture is best test to confirm UTI. Normal RBC is 0-3 RBC/HPF. The presence of epithelial cells, mucus threads, and bacteria consistent with either vaginal contamination during sample collection or UTI. Specific gravity is a reflection of hydration status

I got my urinalysis result and my mucus thread is few and amorphous urates is few what does it means and what is the best medicine for that?

Urates: Mucous threads and urates are frequent findings in the urine of otherwise healthy people and usually do not require treatment. These substances in the urine are evaluated by your doctor in context with the other lab values in the UA, your symptoms and your personal history. He/she is best to determine the significance and need for medication. Best wishes

Ua (Definition)

A ua is a urinalysis, or chemical and microscopic analysis of the urine. The standard urinalysis is performed with a dipstick test for ph, blood, protein, sugar, and ketones. In addition, a urinalysis usually includes a microscope examination to identify if the urine contains cells, "casts" (structures that indicate a problem originating in the kidney) or crystals (such as ...Read more
