WBC on UA: The serum albumin and GFR seem fine, but you have some WBC and leukocyte esterase in the urine. Could be a subtle infection. Could be an inflammatory condition of the bladder or kidney. Should be investigated. ...Read more

Urine breath: Patients who are uremic and not on dialysis try to excrete their increase blood urea nitrogen through their lungs. That is what causes their breath to smell similar to urine.

Kidney problem: Blood in urine can appear from kidney, ureter, or bladder. Fever is not a typical symptom of kidney disease. Severe stomach pain is not either; but kidneys can be painful and this pain is usually in the flank. You may have a stone causing pain and bleeding- get checked asap. ...Read more

Can you get kidney disease from holding in your urine all the time?

Probably not…: …kidney disease but more frequent bladder infections: holding urine stretches bladder so it doesn't function well in emptying, often leaving urine behind, which then becomes a source for infection. Try to urinate soon after getting the urge. If urinating often, see doc to be checked for UTI or diabetes. ...Read more

Please help! what is the name of that kidney disease where the urine backs up into the kindeys?

Reflux: I think what you are talking about is vesicoureteral reflux (vur). This is more commonly seen in children, especially males. There is a secondary form that can be seen in adults or anyone with damaged nerves to bladder resulting in a neurogenic bladder. When the urine backs up into the kidneys hydronephrosis (swollen kidneys) can develop. ...Read more

If my urine test is normal, could I still have kidney disease?

Urinalysis: The answer is yes. Typically patients with certain kidney diseases such as that due to hypertension can have a normal urinalysis. Additionally early kidney disease may not necessarily show evidence on urinalysis. Their are urine biomarkers, that are expensive and special tests that are more sensitive to diagnosing kidney disease. These are not typically used in current practice yet. ...Read more

Have kidney disease stage 3. Recently I've noticed a volume decrease when i ejaculte. Also lower flow of urine from time to time. Could this be related?

Yes. But, : The relation may not be direct. For instance, if you are taking water pills, your amount of fluids in your body is lower. Sometimes the opposite, if your kidneys are slower or no water pills while you have much edema, the same happens. What's important is to keep your weight ideal according to your kidney doctor. If so, urine and ejaculate amount aren't important. ...Read more
