My urine analysis says the urine is clear but the cytology report says it's cloudy.  I have only squamous and urothelial cells present.  Why is that?

Constipation relieved after using medication for 2 days, it is normal now and feeling normal. Urine shows 5-6 epithelial cells and 2-3 wbcs, any prob?

Constipation: if your constipation has improved, then you likely have nothing to worry about now. If constipation is frequent, I would increase the amount of fiber in your diet for the long run. Consider a fiber supplement such as Metamucil. If you do, increase your fluid intake also. You should have a colonoscopy at age 50, or sooner if you have chronic bowel problems The, urine results were fine. Good luck. ...Read more

I have frequent urge to urinate but sometimes when I rush to a washroom, nothing happens.This is happening for the past 10 days.When I took a urine test,it showed that epithelial cells were in large numbers.

Get urine culture: Frequency and urgency occur when the bladder is irritated. Epithelial cells can be present in the urine when the urine sample is contaminated with skin cells. It is best to get a urine culture and possibly a culture for mycoplasma/ureaplasma organisms to ensure there is no active infection that is causing your symptoms. Please see your doctor. ...Read more
