Doctor insights on:
Specific gravity 1.010 and ph 5 or 6. This was a first thing in the morning sample. Does this seem too diluted or is it within normal?
It's dilute: Especially for first thing in the morning. You should ask whoever gave you the means to test this and who has ordered all of these tests what to make of it. Good luck! ...Read more
Isn't it true that kidneys that are failing can't produce a specific gravity of 1.030? And if they are failing it'll stay around 1.010?
Just had a urinalysis. And specific gravity was 1.005 and pH 7.0. Is this ok? My norm specific grav is 1.20 or so.
Specific gravity urine is low. 1.002. What does this mean. Does it mean i'm not drink enough fluids?
Urine test showed Specific Gravity 1.010 and the normal was 1.011. Other results normal. What does that mean?
TheGravityofYour...: A specific gravity of 1.010 is very close to the fluids in your blood vessels(not the blood cells).So in the urine, that means the kidneys aren't working to save any fluid (mostly water).This could be a normal response to drinking a lot of fluids or a sign that the kidneys aren't doing their job.Depends on what else is going on with you.If you feel healthy then it's probably nothing to worry about ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not enough to test: Qns translates to quantity not sufficient. It means there was not enough volume of the sample for the test to be run buy the method the lab uses to confirm the result. ...Read more
I am 21 female. Urine test shows specific gravity- 1010 & Epithelial cells- 3-5/hpf.
Is this normal?
Normal: Your urine is fairly dilute with a SG of 1.010. Epthelial cells are quite normal in a female. These came from your vagina. There would likely be less or no epithelial cells if your labia were widely separated & you caught a mid-stream specimen. No RBCS, WBCs or bacteria is excellent. Good Luck, no cause for any concern ...Read more
Why post hypophysectomy via transphenoifal approach nurse should check urine specific gravity every 4 hrs?
Diabetes insipidus: After a transphenoidal surgery, you can have a disruption of the production of a pituitary hormone called vasopressin, which normally controls the amount of water that is filtered through the kidneys into your urine. This can result in losing too much water in your urine, a condition called "diabetes insipidus", resulting in diluted urine which can be measured by checking the specific gravity. ...Read more
