Doctor insights on:
Consider repeat: The leukocytes in the absence of more than a trace of protein suggests contamination. A trace of blood can be due to something as simple as riding a bicycle. Trace proteinuria is never worth working up, but if blood is still present, it might be worth doing some further investigations to rule out something troublesome. Best wishes. ...Read more
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, you appear to have urinary infection and should see your doctor for a prescription. ...Read more
What is "trace tricuspid regurgitation, trace pulmonic regurgitation and trace mitral regurgitation" noted on an echo? Anything to worry about?
Valve regurgitation: Echocardiograms and doppler studies have become very sophisticated that they can identify the most minor abnormalities. "trace" findings are not harmful and nothing to worry about but your tests should be repeated every so often as recommended by your cardiologist to monitor these findings. Perhaps, in due time, these findings can get worse and be treated accordingly as they are discovered. ...Read more
What is trace tricuspid regurgitation, trace pulmonic regurgitation and trace mitral regurgitation noted on an echo?Anything to worry about?
Urine sample (with stringy floating white pieces) has TRACE bacteria and MODERATE leukocytes. No blood, nitrites, ketones, bilirubin. Diagnosis?
That is probably a: normal looking urine, with some asymptomatic bacteriuria (presence of bacteria without causing infection). The long stringy white stuff is protein or casts that have polymerized in the urine. If you have symptoms of UTI, then you can be treated, but if not then you do not need immediate treatment. Repeat urinalysis for protein presence may be recommended at this time. ...Read more
Usually nothing: I assume this is found on an ultrasound or ct report. It is often normal, especially in women, but must be interpreted in the context of the whole study. The doctor who ordered the test would be in the best position to judge. ...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
My urine has large urine amorphous sediment, small urine calcium oxalate crystals, small bacteria, small mucus , trace protein and sp grav 1.030?
Sounds normal: All these are common and normal. Your urine is quite concentrated, probably due to limited fluid intake before it was collected; this probably explains the trace protein, which is the only thing mentioned that might be considered slightly abnormal. Discuss with your doctor, but I see no cause for worry. ...Read more
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?
This is common: Anyone can have trace proteinuria intermittently; some people get heavier proteinuria just from standing. 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: Most often trace amounts of fluid in various parts of the body are insignificant, but I don't know in what part of the body the cul du sac your referring to is located. Nevertheless the finding sounds trivial, but your physician can ask the radiologist who interpreted the study if there is any need for concern or for followup. ...Read more
This morning, I have trace leukocytes and no nitrites. No symptoms. Do trace leukocytes automatically mean uti?
No: The leukocyte esterase does not especially with no symptoms. ...Read more
What mean that urine albumin trace pus cells 12-15 epith.cells+++ crystals amorphous bacteria present?
Urinalysis: Trace albumin means little or nothing. The presence of trace pus cells is probably from a poorly collected specimen contaminated by vaginal secretions, as suggested by the epithelial cells. The amorphous bacteria is also a result of contamination. To be effective in helping diagnosing UTI this should be an assisted clean midstream urine specimen. ...Read more
