Doctor insights on:
Kindly interpret my urine analysis micro examination :- pus cells:1-2/hpf, rbc:nil, epi cells : +/hpf, bacteria : +?
Probably normal: With respect to predicting the presence or absence of a urinary tract infection, dipstick urinalysis is often unreliable especially in women because of contamination of the urine specimen with vaginal cells and bacteria. I would consider your u/a fairly unremarkable unless you have symptoms of a UTI in which case a urine culture should be done. ...Read more
I am experiencing pink colored urine 3 days side pain...urinalysis shows rbcs:nil/.pus:2-3/protien, sugar :nil/mucus thread +.....should I be worried?
I am 54 Male. Urine report shows Leukocytes 2-5 and epithelial cells 5-10, RBC-Nil, Casts-Absent, Crystals - Absent, Bacteria-Absent, Reaction-Acidic,?
Hard to say: 5-10 epithelial cells indicates that is a contaminated sample. The WBCs indicate there may be an infection of some kind somewhere. I would get a repeat clean-catch sample for reevaluation. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Had pelvic pain for a week, uri (wbc 1-2, rbc-nil, epth- 4-6, niter- nil)ultr (-) for hernia (norm). Infection? Pain is better, but worried of sepsis
Sepsis: Medical definition is fever, rapid pulse (>90/min), rapid respirations (20/min or more), elevated WBC counts with immature cells. Any two of these constitutes sepsis if due to infection. Your doctor should be able to recognize this easily if present. Sounds like a simple case of cystitis (bladder infection) and not likely to cause sepsis. ...Read more
It's normal: "Nil" means there are none of them there. I prefer "zero". ...Read more

Urine is foamy always, U/A shows rbc 8-10hpf, no pus cells and nitrate, bacteria, yeast, cast, crystal=NIL, Even then it can be Infection or Else? Thank
.low RBC: We use the term hemoglobin rather than RBC. Most labs have a lower limit of normal around 12 or so. A level below the lower limit of normal can be 'normal' for about 5% of the US population. Key here is to see if a prior level was higher. Anemia is the term we use to describe a low hemoglobin and causes should be found. ...Read more
Bleeding: Bleeding is the best way to lower RBC. But it depends on what you mean by naturally. In all seriousness, if you need to decrease your RBC, the best way is phlebotomy at your doctor's office. If you smoke, stop. If you have sleep apnea, use CPAP. Make sure your doctor has excluded "Polycythemia Vera" which is like a precancer of red-blood cells in which you have too many and need medication. ...Read more
Dpnds on Gender/lab: The normal range depends on the lab and gender. In our laboratory the lower limit of normal for a female would be 12.0 g/dl. The rbc is number of red blood cells and is a second way of measuring red cells along with the hemoglobin value. ...Read more
Find cause: If your rbc count is high and this is the only lab that's up, chances are you have beta-thal minor and all you need is to have this verified ; learn a little about it. If you have high hemoglobin / hematocrit, forget trying to manage it by diet and find out what's really going on. ...Read more
Contain self antigen: Cells that make up the body's tissues are covered with surface markers, or antigens. The various RBC antigens found on the body's own cells are known as "self-antigens", and the immune system does not attack these. The membrane of each red blood cell contains millions of antigens. When receiving blood transfusions, the host immune systems will attack any donor RBC containing antigens different from their self-antigens. ...Read more
Anemia: The symptoms depend on severity of low red blood cell count. If it is border line low then no symptoms. If moderate to severe then fatigue, tiredness, generalized malaise fainting, chest pain and shortness of breath can happen. Look like you have these symptoms and on vanco for c. Diff. And some bleed with it. Keep in touch with your doctor and monitor CBC at frequent intervals. Good luck. ...Read more
We ignore RBC:
RBC is not very helpful without some context ; we usually measure your red blood cell health (I am being loose with terminology here) with the hemoglobin or hematocrit, which should be on the same report.
RBC is is these days really only used in the calculation of Hematocrit. ...Read more
