Hgb Ur Ql trace-intact mean?

Hgb Ur Ql trace-intact mean?

Several things: Hi. Either you're having intravascular hemolysis and hemoglobin's coming out in the urine, or there are red cells in the urine that measure as urinary hemoglobin. I'd recommend a urinalysis with microscopic evaluation to see if it's reproducible. If no RBCs in urine, Check serum free hemoglobin and haptoglobin, and have a pathologist look at a peripheral blood smear. Good luck! ...Read more

I got urinalysis results.and what does Blood UA mean? It says Trace Intact.what's this all mean?

Urinalysis: The dipstick showed the presence of a trace amount of blood but this could be a contaminant from the vaginal area. Recheck another urine specimen being very careful to avoid contamination by using a clean catch technique. Also, request a microscopic analysis which will show any red blood cells present in the urine. If there are no red blood cells, you're ok. Discuss this with your physician ...Read more

On a recent urinalysis, under blood it came back as trace-intact. What does that mean? It shows up every once in a while.

On a recent urinalysis, under blood it came back as trace-intact.  What does that mean? It shows up every once in a while.

Here are some...: Trace blood on chem-strip urine test is not uncommonly, and microscopic urinalysis should follow to verify if degree of microhematuria is clinically significant or not. In practice, microscopic urinalysis shows 3-5 red blood cells per high power field is significant. Such patients will need further evaluation with imaging studies for kidneys, cystoscopy, etc. More specific detail? Ask Doc timely. ...Read more

I had a UA with mirco today. RBC came back ABN and so did Blood. Result on blood is *trace-intact. Rbc says *3-7. Just wondered what it means?

I had a UA with mirco today.  RBC came back ABN and so did Blood.  Result on blood is *trace-intact.  Rbc says *3-7.  Just wondered what it means?

Probably nothing: This is a scant amount of blood and is probably a false positive test. If you have no urinary symptoms (burning, frequency, hesitancy, or pain on urination) I would repeat in a couple of weeks. I assume you have stopped menstruating. ...Read more

Urinalysis: Relevance depends on the type of symptoms and specimen. A cathed specimen should not have blood in it. If this is a clean catch it is common for women to have some blood in their urine. Kidney stones and urinary tract infection can cause you to have some blood in your urine. ...Read more

Last month I has a urine test I was ok, but now another test was done and came out with urine blood trace-intact.  BecauseI was taking sulfamethoxazol?

Need follow-up: This is probably an incidental transitory finding, but why were you on sulfamethoxazol? Whatever was being treated may have been responsible. Nonetheless, once you are off everything this should be repeated. Blood in urine is not normal. ...Read more

Urinalysis results show trace-intact blood and trace ketones. Anything to worry about?

Depends: Why was the test done? 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, if that is all that is out of order, it is not a reason to worry about. ...Read more

What does trace-intact blood in urine mean?

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

What does blood trace intact mean when talking about a urine test? Thank you

Unclear question: 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, what you described is likely the presence of a few red cells in urine. If this is an isolated finding it may not mean much at your age. You may consult this site and discuss the matter with your doctor:

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?

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

Nothing: Urine dipstick will indicate presence of white blood cells (leukocytes) as trace amount (TR) or higher amounts (1+,2+,3+,4+). Larger amounts suggest inflammation.

Vaginal or foreskin contamination of specimen can falsely elevate leukocytes. ...Read more

Blood: I assume you mean blood in the sputum.
