Repeat urinalysis?: The epithelial cells, mixed bacteria, and mucus alls suggest the urine was contamined with vulvar or vaginal secretions, probably not a "clean catch" midstream specimen.

However, if urinalysis from properly collected urine specimen in 3 momths, still showed significant RBC & others, your urinary tract (kidneys, ureters, bladder, & urethra) should be evaluated with adequate imaging study + cystoscopy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Rbc and WBC casts in urine. Right flank pain. No fever. Pyelonephritis diagnosis but dr told me he wasn't sure that maybe something more going on. Ideas?
This is serious: A nephrologist or pathologist needs to look at the urine to confirm the presence of red cell casts. If they are indeed present, you have glomerulonephritis of some sort. Since you state that you have systemic lupus, this is the obvious first consideration, and the presumptive (and likely) diagnosis is lupus glomerulonephritis. A nephrology referral is in order now. ...Read more
Abnormal urine: If a first-morning urine, before any exercise, always contains 5-6 RBCs, (even though that is not a lot) it is abnormal. If it also contains protein, that is suggestive of kidney disease. Hematuria without protein needs to be checked out. That means XRay (usually CT) of the kidney and a cystoscopy to make sure that there is no kidney or bladder disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly.: Blood in the urine, or hematuria, in the absence of infection, is abnormal and should be worked up. First, a urinary infection must be ruled out. Red cells are common in this setting. If there is no infection, more than 3 red cells in the urinalysis is considered microscopic hematuria & requires evaluation. Work with your doctor to make sure you find a cause, or rule out the more worrisome ones. ...Read more
Trace RBCs ; protein: This means there is a small amount of some source of rbcs ; protein in the urine and the meaning of this needs to be looked at with any other lab abnormalities, signs/symptoms, clinical context. If nothing else abnormal, then blood with protein is entering your urine in some way. Are there symptoms like burning with urine, flank pain, recent infection, etc? See your doctor for more assistance. ...Read more
Hematuria: Blood in the urine is usually considered worrisome only if there are more than 3 red cells per high power field. Before worrying, I would check one more time. If red cells are still seen, you will need to see a urologist to determine whether the bleeding is coming from your kidneys, ureters, or bladder (or prostate if you're a male). ...Read more
