Had blood and urinalysis 7/15. Blood work was all normal but urine showed creatinine level of 409, trace protein, trace leukocyte esterase, WBC, hyali?

Had blood and urinalysis 7/15. Blood work was all normal but urine showed creatinine level of 409, trace protein, trace leukocyte esterase, WBC, hyali?

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

I had a blood test and urine test. Everything was normal , but my urine test showed leukocyte esterase said small (1+) (negative )a . I took another one he said 99% it will be fine. I'm freaking out.

I had a blood test and urine test. Everything was normal , but my urine test showed leukocyte esterase said small (1+) (negative )a .  I took another one he said 99% it will be fine. I'm  freaking out.

Not to worry: The urine dip test is only a screening test. In women, it is not unusual to find a small quantity of leukocyte esterase in the urine which can be from vaginal contamination. A urine culture is the definitive test for urinary tract infection. In the worst case scenario if you culture is positive, a short course of antibiotic is usually all that is needed to cure it. ...Read more

How do i get a high white blood count in my urine but test negative for nitrites and leukocyte esterase?

How do i get a high white blood count in my urine but test negative for nitrites and leukocyte esterase?

If neg, then no leuk attack present, or very low grade. So --- leukocytes without infection do appear in urine from interstitial nephritis , usually allergic, or from interstitial cystitis, usually of unknown ...Read more

I have a trace of Leukocytes and a trace of homolyzed in my blood and urine. What can I do to get rid of it.

The leukocytes: In your urine could mean that you did not use all 3 wipes to get everything REALLY clean before you collected the specimen- you should urinate into the toilet first, THEN collect the specimen. Hemolysis in your blood means that you either had a traumatic draw (you were a hard stick), they used too small of a needle, or whoever spun your blood down waited too long to seperate the cells from serum ...Read more
