See your doctor: I would be concerned. You are spilling protein in the urine and have hyline casts which suggests damage to renal tubules. See a dr asap! ...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

My UA showed 2+ for occult blood and present for mucous. Everything else was normal. What could this mean? I am a 31 year old female with crohn's disease.

My UA showed 2+ for occult blood and present for mucous. Everything else was normal. What could this mean? I am a 31 year old female with crohn's disease.

? Crohn's related: Might have focal bladder inflammation if area of Crohn's affected bowel is touching bladder. However persistent occult or microscopic hematuria warrants possible cystoscopic examination. Especially if UR a smoker. Bladder cancer is rare at your age, but does occur. Can be performed in urology office with local anesthetic lubricant. ...Read more

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?

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 ...Read more

Inflammation: Not sure exactly what your question is, but based on the cellularity, particularly the white blood cells and red blood cells, this urinalysis suggests some element of inflammation. It could be from an infection or from something else. It also is concentrated based on the high specific gravity, but that may be less important. Hope that helps. ...Read more

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

Having CNBP-Had UA. Pus cells 1-2, RBC 0-1, Few epith cells, Mucus = + & few Amorphous urates. It's normal? Do I still've UTI or bacterial prostate?

Having CNBP-Had UA. Pus cells 1-2, RBC 0-1, Few epith cells, Mucus = + & few Amorphous urates. It's normal? Do I still've UTI or bacterial prostate?

No UTI, but...: Normal UA suggests no "UTI, " but cannot r/o prostatitis. Suggest checking your prostatic fluid/semen for WBCs - > 20 WBC/hpf suggests prostatitis, but cannot confirm bacterial vs CNBP. Consider for a trial on antibiotics if evidence warrants. If not, then trial with an alpha-blocker vs Zn (25-50 mg daily)/NSAIDs daily/sitz baths 1-2 x's daily. ...Read more

Low rbc, high urea nitrogenBUN, high urine osmolality, high urine creatinine random, high UA sodium random, ab. Urine epithelial cell, k etones, ur. Mucus?

Dehydrated: 39 F from Indy of unknown ethnicity medical or drugs notes low rbc high bun and high urine Na creat. ANS: sounds like anemia and dehydration or renal disease. The latter is often due to eating too much salt and HTN and choosing the wrong grandparents. Your Dr knows you best so ask them. ...Read more

In my Urinalysis my Bacteria 1 came back as Rare and my Mucous came back as few. They were both flagged, what does that mean?

Nothing: Depending on your symptoms- some would read this as negative. I would look at the Nitrites and the Leukocytes to help me determine appropriate management. If both arer negative, I wouldn't treat with antibiotics. Good luck! ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Here are some. ..: As long as there is break in mucosa and bacteria, bacterial entrance to build a beachhead will take place and unfold if your health defense immune ability does not suffice to fend it off.

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

Here are some...: Most likely, the findings of her urinalysis could be normal for a contaminated urine specimen. If she is free of urinary symptoms, leave her alone; if really concerned, repeat urinalysis with a carefully collected fresh urine specimen as carefully instructed. More? Ask her pediatrician. ...Read more

My ua amorph material/crystal result was rare, what does that mean?

Here are some...: The floating amorphous crystals in fresh urine is usually related with higher pH and what you consume and carries no clinical significance as long as other parameters of urinalysis are unremarkable and you're free of GU-related symptoms. More? Ask your doctor timely. Oftentimes, a 400-letter space could not sufficiently address your Q to your satisfaction. ...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! ?

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

Ua shows neg. Leukocytes. Only 1 white blood cell and bacteria is rare. Positive for nitrites. Would cranberry juice cure this or do I need antibiotic?

Ua shows neg. Leukocytes. Only 1 white blood cell and bacteria is rare. Positive for nitrites. Would cranberry juice cure this or do I need antibiotic?

Ua: Without symptoms a culture would have to be done to determine if there was bacteria. Cystitis is a clinical diagnosis with typical symptoms that is better treated with a culture and sensitivity. Nitrites are less important without symptoms, red or white cells in the urine and < 3 cells per hpf is normal range. Often times a catheterised urine specimen is needed. ...Read more

Urinalysis: Urinalysis with 10-25 RBC per HPF is high and abnormal; indicates shedding of blood from either kidney or ureter or bladder; protein 100 is also high and abnormal; the combination usually indicates a glomerular disorder, particularly in males; epi cells and mucus could be from foreskin (if present); if not present, then this indicates irritation and shedding from within - ADVIL (ibuprofen) can cause all this ...Read more

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
