I just got urine results back, do they indicate that I have a bladder infection? RBC 11-25, WBC 6-10, Bacteria 65, Protein trace, Blood trace.
Possible UTI: These findings could indicate a urinary tract (bladder) infection (UTI), especially if you have painful urination and frequent or urgent urination. However, it could be something else, e.g. chlamydia or other STD if at risk. You'll need to see a doctor (or perhaps use HealthTap Concierge) for professional diagnosis and probably an antibiotic prescription. Don't try to treat yourself. ...Read more

Burning urination. Trace blood/protein in U/A. Negative culture. Urine was in bladder for 3 hrs before sample. Was that long enough for accurate test?
Get urine rechecked: With trace blood in urine, would make sure that a microscopic analysis was done to prove that there was truly blood in the urine as dipstick testing can produce false positives at times. If micro exam not done, repeat urinalysis with this. Also, would get urine tested for T mycoplasma/ureaplasma organisms as this can cause urinary discomfort as well. ...Read more

I am on meds for uti, traces of protein, ketones, blood, leukocytes and bacteria, no nitrites. Wbc of 13. I thought UTI have nitrites. History of urt's?
Test Reliability: While every test can have falsely negative results, there can well be infection that may never show nitrites. Staph and enterococcus, common UTI pathogens, do not show up positive. The test is positive when available nitrates are converted to nitrites, which the test detects. Gram negative bacteria, such as e. Coli, klebsiella, proteus and enterobacter, are common UTI bugs that do convert it. ...Read more

If the blood and protein is persistent and more than trace, you should see a nephrologist who can microscopically analyze blood to see if source is kidney. If so, you should be evaluated for glomerulonephritis. ...Read more

Consider repeat: The leukocytes in the absence of more than a trace of protein suggests contamination. A trace of blood can be due to something as simple as riding a bicycle. Trace proteinuria is never worth working up, but if blood is still present, it might be worth doing some further investigations to rule out something troublesome. Best wishes. ...Read more
