If the protein in urinalysis are positive what does it means?

If the protein in urinalysis are positive what does it means?

Proteinuria: Protein in your urine is a "bad" sign that your kidneys may not be healthy. Unfortunately, it is also important to know what type of protein, as well as how much you are losing in your urine - you should see a nephrologist. ...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

I have foamy urine but my recent urinalysis test says there is no protein in my urine although I had traces of protein in my urine some time ago. I repeated the urine test a week later and there was no more protein in my urine but urine still foamy?

Foamy urine: Very rapid urination/strong force can cause foam/bubbles in the urine. If that is the case, it may persist as long as you pee hard and fast. The only other significant cause of foam is proteinuria. If the urine dipstick test remains negative for protein, you're in the clear, but with your history, periodic testing is advised. ...Read more

Urinalysis with microscopic exam says urine protein 30mg/dl and urine biliruban positive. Says"comment:result confirmed" nxt to bili. No blood no dehy?

Need clarification: We need a lot more information on the type of protein, on the cell count, Cass, and other substance seen in the urine. You need to have the urine repeated, best first thing in the morning when your hydration allows a concentrated urine. You also need some blood testing to clarify and possibly further analysis. Your physician may have to send you to a nephrologist. ...Read more

I've had a low grade fever for 4 weeks. Urinalysis is positive for bilirubin, protein and blood. Cbc shows mono%13. Any idea what all of that means?

I've had a low grade fever for 4 weeks. Urinalysis is positive for bilirubin, protein and blood. Cbc shows mono%13. Any idea what all of that means?

Possibly: The best thing you can do here is to see an infectious diseases expert. You have what is called fever of undetermined origin, and this needs a detailed evaluation, not more antibiotics. Blood in urine is tuberculosis or cancer until proven otherwise. Go see an id doctor now, and good luck, . ...Read more

I have often UTI, I just finished 5 d of Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim), the UA shown nitrite positive, blood mod, protein 30+ and leukocyte was small. What 's to do next?

I have often UTI, I just finished 5 d of Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim), the UA shown nitrite positive, blood mod, protein 30+ and leukocyte was small. What 's to do next?

Recurrent UTI...: If urinalysis was after Bactrim, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) you have resistant bacteria, need different antibiotic. Several possible causes of recurrent UTI, including persistent uncured infection; altered bladder function; and kidney or bladder stone. Sex sometimes triggers UTI. Usually recurrences can be prevented once the cause is known. Discuss with your doctor, or ask for referral to infectious diseases specialist. ...Read more

Can positive RBC in the urine produce positive Protein as well in urine analysis report?

Hematuria: RBC in the urine could be either from the kidneys or the bladder (cystitis). Endothelial damage in the kidney can result in both hematuria and proteinuria. Protein content should be quanitifed to better understand its pathology, (Nephriti/Nephrotic). RBC's in the urine can accompany protein in the urine if the kidneys are injured. Protein will not be detected as a direct result of RBC in the urine ...Read more

My protein count in a urinalysis was 30-70 is that dangerous?

My protein count in a urinalysis was 30-70 is that dangerous?

May be: Is that mg/dl or 24 hour value?
For a random urine sample, the normal values are approximately 0 to 8 mg/dl.
For a 24-hour urine collection, the normal value is less than 80 mg per 24 hours.
If your protein in urine is 30-70/dl that is abnormal and you should consult your doctor for doing a 24 hour urine protein or at least protein/creatinine ratio. ...Read more

What would be common causes for a very high amount of protein in a urinalysis?

A long list: Protein in the urine is an abnormal finding and can be caused by a very long list of entities that can be divided into three main categories. Disease of the glomerulus (your kidney's filters), too much protein in your blood serum that overflows into your urine, and disorders of resorption of protein in the kidney. It can also be caused by certain drugs and by drinking too much water. ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: urinalysis for protein?

Protein in urine: Protein (or precisely albumin) in urine indicates injury to glomeruli (filtering part of nephron in kidney). It can be detected by simple dipstick. Or by random urine protein to creatinine ratio or 24 hour urine collection. 30-300 mg is microalbuminuria and >300 mg is macroalbuminuria. ...Read more

Pyelonephritis, infected kidneys and urinalysis indicated traces of protein. Are these worrying signs?

Pyelonephritis, infected kidneys and urinalysis indicated traces of protein. Are these worrying signs?

Make sure goes away: Typically with a pyelonephritis some protein is spilled into the urine because the tubules that are infected lose function and are unable to resorb protein spilled into the urine. Make sure the urine protein is gone after you complete your therapy. Obviously make sure that your symptoms of the kidney infection (aka pyelonephritis) goes away. ...Read more

What does microcytic rbcs in urinalysis mean protein and wbcs were normal?

What does microcytic rbcs in urinalysis mean protein and wbcs were normal?

Likely mechanical,,,: This likely comes from a mechanical issue where blood cells pass through the glomerulus and tubules and get damaged, so they get dysmorphic features, but they usually are doughnut shaped, not microcytic. This happens in glomerulonephritis or inflammation from infection or autoimmune diseases. It can also be due to a bleeding/hemolytic issue from heart valve, etc. Or ureter issue (stones, etc.). ...Read more

What are the causes for low serum protein and globulin? Last urinalysis was normal

Depends on profile: Serum protein levels are made up of a variety of proteins, albumin, as well as alpha, beta and gamma globulins. If you get a serum protein electrophoresis, the relative quantities of these proteins can be assessed. Most commonly, the Albumin level can go up or down depending on fasting levels. The other levels can go up or down depending on disease conditions or medications. See your internist. ...Read more

My urinalysis was negative except for protein (+1) and presence of amorphous sediment. What does this mean? Do I have a UTI? Thank you.

Probably no UTI: The main urinalysis abnormality in UTI is increased white blood cells; or on a dipstick test, positive leukocyte esterase and nitrites. Amorphous sediment is entirely normal. 1+ protein usually also doesn't mean anything. So no evidence at all of UTI. Beyond that, discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

I'm 36, male, 130 lbs, 5' 5" in height. My creatinine is 109.63 umol/l. In my urinalysis, protein is negative. The pH is 6.5. How are my kidneys?

Cratinine of 109.63: Your creatinine of 109.63 translates to a creatinine of 1.24 mg/dl. This is normal for your age. To find out what your kidney function is accurately, you need to have a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance and protein. Even though your urine analysis is negative, a 24 hour urine collection will be more accurate to see if you have proteinuria. Good luck. ...Read more

Two weeks ago, my urinalysis was normal. Yesterday, my urinalysis shows trace in protein and traced non-hemolyzed blood. Dr not worried. Do I go ER?

Not to worry: Why have you had normal urinalysis repeated 2 weeks later? Trace protein &/or trace non-hemolysed blood is unlikely to have any serious cause. Cause likely of no consequence, straining to urinate, masturbation or nothing. Stop worrying & certainly don't waste your or health care system's time by going to ER. Wait 3 months & repeat is all you need to do. ...Read more
