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
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

Has 'branched chain amino acids' (bcaa) diet suplement some negative affects on human body? (kidneys, liver etc.?)
Kidney labs normal. Dark yellow urine. Turbid. Keytones trace. Proteins 1+. Bacteria few. Amorphous sediment many. Rest of urine is normal, explain?
I took calcium supplement so calcium oxalate urates coming in urine. Any good calcium supplement that don't cause it?
Get Evaluated: Hi. Was that your first stone? Any family history of stones? It's always worth checking a blood calcium and PTH, urine pH, and a 24-hour urine for calcium & oxalate, and any other tests indicated. Women I know who've had a vaginal birth and passed a stone say they'd take the vaginal birth over the stone any day. If you find something treatable your future might be more comfortable! ;-) Good luck ...Read more
Have bone density scan tomo morn. No calcium supplmnts BUT drank 3 glasses almondMilk:135% daily value calcium (fortified w/tricalcium phosphate).Bad?
If too much sugar: It can be bad if the almond milk has sugar added, which it probably does. Drinking sweetened drinks is a fast way to down many, many grams of sugar. Sugar is bad stuff (but a little bit is ok). As for the bone density scan, no worries. Calcium-fortified foods and drinks won't alter one's bone density overnight. ...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

I read somewhere that sperm contains the essential nutrients(incl protein), so does excessive ejaculation(masturbation) deplete these nutrients?
Easily replaced: Your spit and or other body secretions also contain protein and are replenished with normal feeding activity. Masterbation is a normal part of human sexuality. If it becomes excessive it can draw you away from social activities where you could develop more as a person. That would be more important than the trivial amount of nutrients in ejaculate. ...Read more

Sea or table salt for POTS? What about trace minerals? Appetite ravenous but still losing weight, consult md? Or normal? 225 down to 208 in about a wk
Any salt works: By POTS - I assume you mean Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome- in that case the type of salt will not make a difference - it is the increased salt intake and "fluid intake " that helps. Most people on a regular diet should not be deficient in trace minerals. If the weight loss is unexplained it is a good idea to see your doctor ...Read more

Minerals: The major minerals found in bone are calcium and phosphorus in the form of an insoluble salt called hydroxyapatite (HA) [chemical formula: (Ca)10(PO4)6(OH)2)].
