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 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

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.

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

Why doesn't our body destroy our own RBCs?

Why doesn't our body destroy our own RBCs?

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

Why is number of rbcs higher in females than in males?

Why is number of rbcs higher in females than in males?

It's really not: Usually men have slightly higher average hemoglobins, hematocrits, and RBC's. Testosterone enhances erythropoiesis some, and I suspect this was designed because men are more likely to need bursts of speed (the slowest man is the one eaten by the bear). ...Read more
