Urinalysis results show trace leukocyte esterase?

Urinalysis results show trace leukocyte esterase?

Likely not: Significant. Do you have symptoms of urinary infection? Trace levels are difficult to interpret in isolation. All lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the test is usually in the best position to do that. ...Read more

Ua (Definition)

A ua is a urinalysis, or chemical and microscopic analysis of the urine. The standard urinalysis is performed with a dipstick test for ph, blood, protein, sugar, and ketones. In addition, a urinalysis usually includes a microscope examination to identify if the urine contains cells, "casts" (structures that indicate a problem originating in the kidney) or crystals (such as ...Read more

Any symptoms?: Female after menopause have frequently UTI (urinary tract infection) without symptoms or it may be bacterial contamination form skin. These are typical markers of possible infection but in absence of symptoms - best to do urinalysis and urine culture to determine bacteria. if no bacteria detected and trade of blood persists - consult urologist. Drink plenty of fluids and keep good hygiene. ...Read more

My urinalysis always shows trace leukocyte estrace any cause for concern (I have lupus so tested every 3-6 months)?

Not if culture neg.: This is not a concern as long as the urine cultures are negative. A trace LE can just be from some contamination. However, when you have this a culture should be done to confirm that there is no infection going on. ...Read more

Possible stone: Non-obstructing kidney stone could account for urinary findings. Am curious, was urinalysis preformed on a routine basis, if not then why. Probably worth geteing a kidney ; bladder ultrasound to rule in or out any abnormality. Good luck. ...Read more

Stop worrying: I understand you have fibromuscular dysplasia of the renal arteries and hope this can be addressed. The urine creatinine, trace protein and hyaline casts are non-issues, the trace of leukocyte esterase and white cells (unless very numerous or you have symptoms of infection) are likely contamination, and if your physician is not concerned, I would not be either. Best wishes. ...Read more

Contaminated urine: This goes along with your culture result: a urine specimen contaminated with vaginal fluid. It means nothing. If you have symptoms, discuss them with your doctor -- but this urine specimen doesn't say anything about the cause. ...Read more

1 week ago had urinalysis for annual physical. Today I got a call that I have an undiagnosed UTI. Results- trace of blood & small leukocyte esterese. No burning or urgency to pee. Was given Cipro 250mg 2x/day for 3 days. Accurate diagnosis?

UTI? STD?: Without ymptoms, usually treatment would not be given until additional testing confirmed the diagnosis. Asymptomatic UTIs are not rare, and the diagnosis probably is correct. However, other things can cause similar urinalysis findings, especially STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomnonas) -- and none of these is reliably treated with ciprofloxacin. Check with doc ASAP esp. If at poss. STD risk. ...Read more

I just got my urinalysis back and it had 2+ leukocyte estrace and wbc 6-8. What could this mean?

I just got my urinalysis back and it had 2+ leukocyte estrace and wbc 6-8. What could this mean?

Possibly nothing: Normal urinalysis is leucocyte esterase negative & 0 -2 wbc/hpf. However esterase can be =+ve from smegma or artifact. Often difficult to get true clean catch urine sample in women. Unlikely UTI as UA was nitrite -ve. Also do not report proteinuria, thus kidney disease v unlikely. U can always repeat UA. Separate labia minora, clean with soap towelette, keeping labia open get mid-stream specimen ...Read more

30 y.O. M asymptomatic, just common cold. Urinalysis shows urobilinogen of the chart, + leukocyte, very little billirubin. Drugs:cialis and dianabol.

30 y.O. M asymptomatic, just common cold. Urinalysis shows urobilinogen of the chart, + leukocyte, very little billirubin. Drugs:cialis and dianabol.

Follow-up: If I understand, your urine urobilinogen level was very high, there was a trace of bilirubin in your urine, you are taking dianabol, and you are not visibly jaundiced. Dianabol will cause cholestasis and is the likely explanation for the bilirubinuria. The elevated urobilinogen will prompt a savvy physician to order liver enzymes and a reticulocyte count to check for hemolysis. ...Read more

Are my Urinalysis results a cause for concern? Under blood it says Large, Urobilinigen. 02 and Leukocyte Esterase small. I'm 27 weeks pregnant.

Are my Urinalysis results a cause for concern? Under blood it says Large, Urobilinigen. 02 and Leukocyte Esterase small. I'm 27 weeks pregnant.

Recheck URINALYSIS: If your repeat urinalysis still shows "large blood", your obstetrical team will want to find out about possible lower abdominal trauma, recent sexual activities....check your urine culture to rule out an asymptomatic urinary tract infection and possibly refer you to a urologist. Do request a follow up evaluation and get reassured. ...Read more

Does an urinalysis report of: leukocyte esterase 1+, urine WBC 6-10 and squamous epithelial cells 0-5 mean an infection?

Does an urinalysis report of: leukocyte esterase 1+, urine WBC 6-10 and squamous epithelial cells 0-5 mean an infection?

Not necessarily: Voided (vs. Catheterized) urine specimens in women are potentially subject to contamination. Urine culture is the definitive method of determining the presence of infection. Another important point is that in older women in the absence of symptoms, this kind of urine abnormality alone or even a positive culture should not be treated with antibiotics (asymptomatic bacteriuria). ...Read more

Hi I received a urinalysis test result with abnormal +2 ketones, +1 blood, 2+ leukocyte esterase, and above high normal 2+ WBC. No bacteria seen.?

Urinalysis: The ketones may have been because you were fasting when collecting the urine, or perhaps you are diabetic and blood sugar not in good control. The leukocytes were probably from vaginal secretions unless you had a clean assisted midstream catch urine. You do not say if you have any symptoms. Lab values without a clinical context are not very valuable. ...Read more

What could these mean in a urinalysis (doc says it's not a UTI despite symptoms) leukocyte: pos, bacteria: +1, squamous epithelial: +1 LPK, mucus: +1?

Contamination: The squamous epithelial cells indicate that some of your vaginal secretions got into the urine. These contain leukocytes so all bets are off. Very abundant leukocytes with symptoms might still support a urinary tract infection. ...Read more

I have often UTI, I just finished 5 d of Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim), the UA shown nitrite positive, blood mod, protein 30+ and leukocyte was small. What 's to do next?

Recurrent UTI...: If urinalysis was after Bactrim, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) you have resistant bacteria, need different antibiotic. Several possible causes of recurrent UTI, including persistent uncured infection; altered bladder function; and kidney or bladder stone. Sex sometimes triggers UTI. Usually recurrences can be prevented once the cause is known. Discuss with your doctor, or ask for referral to infectious diseases specialist. ...Read more

I am 11 weeks pregnant and today my results came back: leukocyte esterase ua large: what does this mean?

Urinalysis: Leucocyte esterase comes from white blood cells - infection fighters. Having these cells in your urine usually means infection. However, there can be other causes and so I would recommend that you talk with your doctor about getting a urine culture done if she/he thinks this means infection. ...Read more

Leukocyte esterase, ua my results were large. It also said "does not show any significant bacterial infection". Am I ok? Or do I need a 2nd opinion?

Culture that urine.: A urinalysis (ua) cannot always identify the presence of bacteria or an infection. Although leukocytes can be present in the urine from other non-infectious causes, an infection should always be considered, and only a urine culture can diagnose or exclude an infection. ...Read more

Your swollen abdomen: Your swollen abdomen does. I am uncertain if that swelling is due to your urinary tract. You may need it in an evaluation, imaging such as an abdominal CT to help clarify the swelling in the blood. And possible liver issues

I am five days postpartum. UA says Leukocyte esterace Large and Hemoglobin moderate. Everything else was normal. No fever or pain in urinating.?

Contaminated urine: Being just 5 days after delivery, it is likely that the urine sample was contaminated by skin cells and blood from the vaginal area. It is unlikely that there is any problem given the lack of symptoms. Can always check another urine in a few days if any concern ...Read more

My urinalysis showed trace of blood and large amount of leukocytes and I was told to reschedule for another test. Why do I need it again? Am I sick?

Confirming results: The presence of large leukocytes esterace levels in the urine indicates the presence of white blood cells in the urine. However it is possible that the urine sample was contaminated with skin cells or that the results were by dipstick only. Oftentimes it is helpful to get a repeat urinalysis with a microscopic exam to prove that blood and white cells are present and then other tests if needed ...Read more

Don't worry: Ignore it. If you have no symptoms of infection and you're a man, it can be due to anything from jalepino peppers to a stray underwear thread; it's your physician's call to search for trichomonas or chlamydia. If you're a lady, it can be contamination from nearby. ...Read more
