Why does in acute glomerulonephritis , specific gravity &urine osmolality increase ?Shouldn't kidneys loss the ability to concentrate the urine?
Leakage of protein,,: This is likely due to the fact that there is failure of the basement membrane to contain large molecules like proteins, etc.. Also in some cases, oliguria can occur, which means anything in the urine can get concentrated even more than it should be. Proteinuria can be almost 3 g/day. ...Read more
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
Lumbar puncture results:
Multiple IgG oligoclonal bands detected in CSF and serum, most bands unique to CSF.
IgG value 9.43, range 6 - 15
Is this MS?
Consistent: But diagnosis of MS should be based on history, physical exam, results of MRI films, and spinal fluid is useful in ambiguous cases. However, elevation of oligoclonal bands can be seen in several disorders and NOT definitive on its own. Have your doctor now put the whole picture in place. Most likely MS, but other possibilities exist. ...Read more
Sr creatinine(0.91mg/dl). All other urine analysis is normal. specific gravity is low 1.005. What is the significance of this.
Urine specific grav: Specific gravity is a measure of the "other" things in your urine besides plain water, and can include electrolytes, proteins, and sugars or other chemicals. The fact that your level is very low would indicate that you have been drinking lots of fluids so the urine is dilute, or your kidneys won't concentrate the urine by excreting electrolytes. Sr. Creatinine should check nl range for lab. ...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
Urine chemistry the specific gravity is 1.010 there was infection protein glucose ketones all nil does the s.G. Means definetly kidney failier?
Does urine specific gravity increase or decrease in post-renal azotemia ? And what about pre renal ?
Depends : In pre renal azotemia if due dehydration or volume depletion, specific gravity should be high but depends on baseline kidney functions like any underlying kidney disease. I am not sure what you meant by post renal azotemia- in general someone passing lots of urine and is clear, specific gravity should be low as it is likely to be dilute urine; but are some exceptions. ...Read more
Pls help interpret urinalysis: reaction:8.0
pus cells 1-3
ephitheli cells: few
a phospates: moderate?
Depends on your: Symptoms and the reason for the test. There are no obvious abnormalities in the data that you mention, but you should ask the doctor who ordered the test to interpret the results. A doctor will order a test only when there is a good reason to order it.. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ph 8, epithelial cells moderate, RBC 3-5, 0-3 wbc, bacteria moderate. protein, glucose, crystals and ketones all negative. specific gravity 1.010?
What is/are the specific compound(s) that give normal, fresh, concentrated urine its characteristic odour?
Ehhh,...?: The urine color, odor, and consistency is mainly derived from the food and drink you have. If you eat healthy, then you have the urine you apparently are asking about. When you notice that your urine has changed color, or there's a strange odor wafting up from the toilet, the cause might be something as harmless as what you had for dinner (which could have included beets or asparagus). It also might be a sign of a more serious condition, such as an infection ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is there a specific type of semen culture that provides quantitative results about enterococcus, in order to see medication effectiveness?
Go see your doctor: You shouldn't have enterococcus in your semen so however diagnosis was made, you can ask your doctor to repeat it to prove that you're cured. Typically, we identify bacterial organism via culture & sensitivity. That tells us what antibiotics the organism is sensitive to. If you can finish appropriate antibiotics as directed by sensitivities, then usually no need for test of cure. ...Read more
Is there any way to improve blood flow to the pelvic area in male diabetics? Specific exercises etc.?
Is urine specific gravity of 1.002-1.006 too low or indicative of anything? Creatinine .7, BUN 10, urinalysis normal/negative.
Can you please explain the significance of monoclonal alpha chain without accompanying light chain?
Abnormal globulin: The gammaglobulins, which are proteins that defend our body from different diseases are formed of two chains the light and the heavy chain. In certain diseases, such as multiple myeloma, one cell starts to produce one type of (or part of) gammaglobulin. This proteins are all the same (therefore "monoclonal") and usually non-functioning. It can accumulate in tissues producing more damage. ...Read more
Ideop Neurop, IPE=Monoclonal IGGlambada present. No free lambda light chains seen. Mprotein seen below threshold IPE. SI all in ranges Igg 1.4. mean?
Neuropathy in MGUS: Periphral neuropathy is common in gammopathies. If just sensory (numbness/tingling) we follow it or treat symptoms. If there is motor involvement (muscle weakness) it may need treatment. Risk of converson to a bone marrow disease is about 1% per year. You need to be followed by a neurologist/rheumatologist (if interested in neuropathies). MGUS means monoclonal gammopathy of unknown signifcance. ...Read more
