Trace In Urine
Well, I'm going to: Make a number of assumptions here: I suspect the first number is SG (specific gravity) and the result is 1.025. This is a measure of concentration/hydration. This value may suggest dehydration and a concentrated urine. Then you have a trace of blood and protein in the urine, typically not worrisome results. If nothing else positive, your doctor will likely just observe, depending on your symptoms ...Read more
Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more

My husband has developed diabeties recently and has albumin traces in urine? Is it normal for a diabetic to show albumin traces? Urine acetone nil
Microalbuminuria: Above a certain threshold, Albumin in the urine is a marker of diabetic kidney damage (nephropathy). However, it can be many years before it progresses to kidney failure, and the progression of diabetic nephropathy can be halted. Control blood glu (a1c less than 7), control bp, use an ace-i or arb (even if BP normal), and control other risk factors such as weight, lipids. ...Read more
Got reading 4 trace-lysed urine. My complaint was severe nausea in morning and dizziness upon standing. It fadesby12pm. Weak. What testing is needed?
Lysed urine: Hello ~ this means you have a trace amount of blood in the urine and the red cells of that blood have broken open (lysed). So there's no red CELLS its now just hemaglobin. As its TRACE this is or could be NORMAL nor just a tiny amount of blood which is very common-place in women. No tests or treatment required. Your dizziness is another thing. Make appt to see your doc about that. Thx ...Read more
Hi my mom just did a nlood test and the results are HDL 35 Mg/dl LDL 103Mg/dl Albumin (+) (traces in urine) Are they related in some way please help?
The results of cholesterol in the blood have no relation with the urine results.
HDL is borderline low and LDL is slightly high, depending on the reference ranges of the lab you used. Also you did not mention how high the total cholesterol is, and if there is family history of heart disease. Trace albumin in the urine is commonly seen, not significantmay need repeat if your doctor is concerned. ...Read more

On urine test results, urine hemoglobin=trace-intact, urine microscopic = indicated, wbc/hpf=0-3, rbc/hpf=0-3. What do these results & terms mean?
Normal: The WBC and rbc are referring to the number of white blood cells and red blood cells seen in a range of microscopic fields of sampled by the lab technician. The number of these cells (0 to 3) for both types of cell is within the normal limits expected. These normal, scattered red cells are enough to cause a trace of hemoglobin on the chemistry test. So these are all normal results. ...Read more

Specific Gravity URN 1.031 Ketone Urine (Trace) Bilirubin Urine (small) what could possibly cause the above? My doctor recommends for ultrasound exam
Almost normal urine: Must be other reasons for the ultrasound recommendation. The urine results aren't very abnormal. It could result from mild dehydration overnight and fasting. Small bilirubin can be a false positive. What kind of ultrasound? Bladder residual volume? R/O renal artery stenosis? Kidney? ...Read more

Urine results: Leukocytes/white blood cells indicate that inflammatory/infectious process is occurring, especially if rbcs are not present to support the idea of whole blood in the urine. Ketones are breakdown products of fats/fatty acids ; seen in fasting or starvation. Lab findings must be taken in a clinical context; we would need to know what symptoms, issues, or other info available if any to help evaluate. ...Read more
Probably not: This obviously depends upon your symptoms and the remainder of the urine results, which also depends on the manner in which urine was collected. In women, trace leukocytes are from vaginal secretions as well as from inflammation in the urinary tract. You need to discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more
Define "significant": Trace proteinuria could be due to any 1 of many DIAGNOSES. Not all causes are bad, but if a doctor ordered a urinalysis test, he/she must have had some REASON. Presumably, that doctor knows your CONDITION best - what illnesses you have / had (if any), & what state you were in during the visit. Important thing is to figure out WHY protein was reported in urine. Infx? Lab error? Kidney Dz? TTYD. GL! ...Read more

See a nephrologist: Hi. The trace ketones don't mean much, but protein in the urine is a finding in a variety of kidney diseases (from diabetes, high blood pressure, and a number of intrinsic kidney diseases). It's important you see a nephrologist and have the cause of the proteinuria determined and treated if possible. Good luck! ...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 more
Need more tests,,,: A trace protein in your urine isn't bad and GFR can be low in certain groups of people and in older people with less body mass and those with low fluid intake. You're also on many meds and have symptoms and signs pointing to an autoimmune issue (raynaud's). This alone might cause CKD but more renal tests (bun, cr) would be needed before making such a diagnosis. Good luck. ...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
Possibly: Urine dipsticks and microscopic urinalysis can suggest uti, but the definitive test is a urine culture, which can take 36-72 hours to come back. If you are having symptoms, such as burning urination, frequency, urgency, or urine discoloration, I suggest you see your doctor to have a culture performed. It is not wrong to take antibiotics while you wait for the results if your doctor prescribes it. ...Read more
