Dr. Marina Landa answered:

What does it mean when you have squamous epithelial cells in urine?

not worrisome

Squamous cells in urine could be contamination from genitalia's squamous epithelium mucosa or from trigone area of urinary bladder (female). Not worrisome. We are talking about benign squamous cells.

A clean catch urine sample showed bacteria and squamous cell. I was told this is normal.?

Contaminated specimn

Squamous cells on a clean catch means it was not really a clean catch. The squamous cells come from contaminating the urine collection by touching the cup or having the urine touch your labia. The skin is covered in bacteria.

Dr. Kamel M. Sadek answered:

what does it mean when i have bacteria, white blood cells, and sqamous epithelia in my urine?

May be nothing

The positive findings on your urine commonly happens with contaminated urine sample. Unless you did a careful midstream urine catch, which would decrease the chance of having what you found on your urine test. If you are having symptoms of urine infection, a urine culture can help in evaluation and treatment.

Urine R/M/E Report shows Albumin: (+), Epithelial Cell: 3-5/HPF, Pus cell: 0-1/HPF. Does it indicate urine infection? I have CKD.

Unclear

The urinalysis results you present are missing the most important markers for UTI, that is leukocyte esterase and nitrites. That being said your wbc count isn't elevated. The positive albumin is likely a consequence of your preexisting CKD. If you have symptoms of a UTI, discuss this with your doctor.

Dr. James M. Krick answered:

My urinalysis results show: Occasional Leucocyets, Epithelial Cells 1/HPF and Non Squamous Epi Cell. There's no bacteria. What does this indicate?

"possibly a UTI"

while this could represent a lower urinary tact infection, this would most likely represent a contaminated specimen (especially a voided specimen in a female). Most urologists are cautious about "treating the urinalysis" and would follow with a urine culture and sensitivity.

I'm pregnant and the doctor found epithelial cell in my urine is the baby and me at risk

You are fine!

No reason to worry - we see epithelial cells in urinalyses all the time. No risk for your pregnancy unless you develop bacteriuria. Drink plenty of water.

Epithelial cells in urine and have been having kidney pain. What is going on?

Try again

Epi's almost always are a marker of a contaminated specimen--it picked up skin cells along the stream. Need a good clean catch, and are looking for bacteria, white blood cells, nitrite, leukocyte esterase, and wbc casts for classic pyelonephritis (kidney infection). If ua clean other than red blood cells, might be a kidney stone. See a Doctor for testing.
