Some urine tests indicates trace hematuria and trace protein but hpf shows 0-3 RBC and wbc, others show no trace, what can it be?

A bit of blood or blood-like reactivity can happen from playing sports (a bit of myoglobin in the urine), from a few disrupted capillaries from riding a bicycle, or a variety of other life events. If your physician is not concerns, i would not be either. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Trace hematuria, and proteinuria on some ua dipstick. Blood work shows normal kidney function. Ct w/contrast, xray kub, and us all normal. Ideas?
Benign glomerular dz: Hematuria and proteinuria suggests a glomerular cause ( kidney filter) since the urologic studies are negative. Kidney biopsy would be diagnostic but makes no sense since risk of progressive renal failure is very low as long as the urine protein is less than 500 mg a day. Diagnosis would include IgA nephropathy, thin basement membrane disease among others. As long as normal function u r ok. ...Read more

I saw my doctor yesterday for frank hematuria, no other symptoms, no obvious cause. I'm 33, F, healthy, non drinking/non smoking, no prescription meds. My CBC, WBC differential, urinalysis were all normal. Microscopic urinalysis showed "trace" bacteria
Hematuria: If you have hematuria (h), you need to find its cause. First have a urine culture to see if you have a uti. If not, see a urologist (u) for an evaluation of the h. The u will order a renal ultrasound and an ivp to assess the state of your kidneys. If those tests are negative, a cystoscopy, to see the bladder wall, may be needed. If you don't have a uti, see a u to find the cause of it. Good luck. ...Read more
Need workup: Trace blood in urine means you will need a repeat urinalysis and then a workup by a urologist if this is confirmed with microscopic examination of urine to have 3 or more red blood cells per high power field. If you have this amount or more of red blood cells, you will need a urine culture, cytology, imaging (ct scan), and cystoscopy=camera to look inside the bladder. See your urologist. ...Read more

Microscopic amounts: The urine should be totally clear -- no blood, no pus. Small amounts of blood could be seen in the urine of normal people (marathon runners and truck drivers who constantly pound the kidneys up and down). Usually, though, blood in the urine may indicate trouble like stones, bladder infection, cancer, or other pathology that may need to be investigated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not Normal: Likely it is not a big issue. Repeat and make sure they look under the microscope for red blood cells. The dipstick can be positive with muscle breakdown, certain dyes in foods and other conditions. If blood cells present you should be evaluated for bladder cancer especially if you smoke or work in the chemical industry. In addition a kidney ultrasound to rule out kidney cancer is reasonable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What does it mean when you have traces of blood in urine? How can that go away? How dangerous is it???
Blood in urine: Blood in the urine is not normal and should be evaluated. Possible causes include infection, stones, blood disorders, trauma and tumors. Sometimes, urine dipstick tests are very sensitive and will register "trace" blood, and the result may not be clinically significant. Your doctor can help sort this out. ...Read more

Trace blood in urine: Trace blood in urine can be normal. However, it warrants repeat testing. Specifically, the test should be repeated with a sample of the first urine in the morning. A negative test would eliminate any concern. Positive test could still be normal, but a thorough history and family history should be taken. ...Read more
RBCs in Urine: These are qualitative terms where trace is a few red blood cells (rbcs) and 1+ is few more rbcs assuming of course that the urine has been screened for the presence of intact rbcs'. Thus the more rbcs the higher the value. Caveat here is that the dipstick can return a positive result when free hemoglobin or other similar substances are present. ...Read more
