My urine test results are urine micro pus cells 25-30, epithelial cells 20-25.My doc have given antibiotic without having culture test done.Is it ok?
Not at all: That is not right. The first thing would be to repeat the urinalysis since there were skin cells, ie, contamination, on the collection. These skin cells could have been the source of the wbcs. Also, how would he know if the antibiotic would properly treat this infection if there was no culture to base it upon. Pls repeat the test. ...Read more

Negative on urinalysis (protein, etc), negative on gram stain (no micro, 1-3 pus cels/hpf) but extremely cloudy urination. Also no pain urinating. ?
Drink water: The urine analysis is probably ok. A few contaminated cells. If you are worried about the cloudy urine; Drink more water. See if the cloudy urine turns to a light colored urine the color of a straw hat. Follow up with your doctor to let them know you are urinating with no pain and the urine is now normal. ...Read more
Urine; moderate WBC, no nitrites, culture <50k multiple non-uropathogenic gram positive bacteria. No symptoms. Possible contamination? Antibiotics??
Contaminant: Infection is when pathogens (bacteria for example) invade your tissues. This almost always produces signs which include redness, swelling, warmth and pain. In the absence of symptoms this is a contaminant or a colonization of your urinary tract. Note: Do not test urine without a good reason.... ...Read more
I did an hvs test and the result is epithelial cell : numerous, pus cell 3 -4hpf yeast + others nill.when cultured it yielded scanty growth of candida?
Yeast? Other? STD?: Your test results are mixed. Seeing any by microscopy, with pus cells, suggests overgrowth and active infection, but "scant growh" is slightly against it. If symptoms typical of a yeast infection (vaginal irritation and itching, usually little discharge), treatment for yeast probably will help. Pus cells can suggest other infections, e.g. STD. Discuss with your doctor or clinic. Good luck! ...Read more
Urine showed RBC-trace,protein-trace. No WBC or bacteria. Dr sent it for culture. Does this sound like infection?Nervous of abx due to CDiff history.
Doubt infection: This pathologists believes that trace protein never means anything. Anybody can have a bit of blood in the urine. Were there a bunch of red cells in the sediment? Even exercising before the test can give trace or +1 blood. Absent white cells, I seriously doubt infection. Today's physicians may be constrained by malpractice fears to do questionable tests. Just play along and relax. ...Read more
My throat culture & sensitivity c/s report says "organism: moderate growth streptococcus viridans group" is this normal, i've white coating on tongue?
Possible fungal...: Overgrowth. If you have cultures, you are probably already on an antibiotic for something. S. Viridens is a common oral bacteria that we all have on some level. Yours may be higher than normal but the white on your tongue could be candidiasis from a lack of "regular" bacteria that keep it down. Try 1/2 hydrogen peroxide/ 1/2 or mouthwash, brush your tongue, if no luck see a dr. May need nystatin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can 2-3/hpf pus cells and 0-1 /hpf RBC in urine cause fever? Have burning sensation after urination.
Not likely, but:: The amount of pus cells (wbc) and rbc are normal for a voided urine. Almost all patients with a urinary tract infection will show a large number of WBC in a spun sample. So your result suggests something other than a urinary tract infection is causing fever. Nevertheless, I suggest that your Dr. repeat the U/A and do a urine culture in order to be certain that you don't have a kidney infection ...Read more
