Mucus (Definition)

Like material that functions to moisten and protect inner body surfaces. The viscous slippery substance that consists chiefly of mucin, water, cells, and inorganic salts and that is secreted as a protective lubricant coating by the cells and glands of the mucous membranes. The free slime of the mucous membranes, composed of secretion of the glands, various salts, ...Read more

? Crohn's related: Might have focal bladder inflammation if area of Crohn's affected bowel is touching bladder. However persistent occult or microscopic hematuria warrants possible cystoscopic examination. Especially if UR a smoker. Bladder cancer is rare at your age, but does occur. Can be performed in urology office with local anesthetic lubricant. ...Read more

I had my ua just now, and the result is: Pus Cells 35-45; RBC 2-4; Eph many; Bac many; mucous Threads mod, Specific gravity 1.016; what does it mean?

I had my ua just now, and the result is: Pus Cells 35-45; RBC 2-4; Eph many; Bac many; mucous Threads mod, Specific gravity 1.016; what does it mean?

See answer: Normal WBC count is 3-5 WBC/HPF. Elevated WBC, as in your case, indicative of either infection, inflammation, or vaginal contamination. A urine culture is best test to confirm UTI. Normal RBC is 0-3 RBC/HPF. The presence of epithelial cells, mucus threads, and bacteria consistent with either vaginal contamination during sample collection or UTI. Specific gravity is a reflection of hydration status ...Read more

Inflammation: Not sure exactly what your question is, but based on the cellularity, particularly the white blood cells and red blood cells, this urinalysis suggests some element of inflammation. It could be from an infection or from something else. It also is concentrated based on the high specific gravity, but that may be less important. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Are these bad results in my urine test or no? URINE EPITHELIAL CELLS-None seen Mucus, UA-Present BACTERIA IN URINE-Few

Are these bad results in my urine test or no? URINE EPITHELIAL CELLS-None seen Mucus, UA-Present BACTERIA IN URINE-Few

Not really: In a normal urine, there shouldn't be any epithelial cells. Trauma or infection can cause them to be present. Few bacteria are not necessarily a bad sign. There is a condition called asymptomatic bactiuria (which just means bacteria in the urine without there being an infection). I'm not very concerned about the mucus. This should all be correlated with your symptoms of course. ...Read more

Having CNBP-Had UA. Pus cells 1-2, RBC 0-1, Few epith cells, Mucus = + & few Amorphous urates. It's normal? Do I still've UTI or bacterial prostate?

Having CNBP-Had UA. Pus cells 1-2, RBC 0-1, Few epith cells, Mucus = + & few Amorphous urates. It's normal? Do I still've UTI or bacterial prostate?

No UTI, but...: Normal UA suggests no "UTI, " but cannot r/o prostatitis. Suggest checking your prostatic fluid/semen for WBCs - > 20 WBC/hpf suggests prostatitis, but cannot confirm bacterial vs CNBP. Consider for a trial on antibiotics if evidence warrants. If not, then trial with an alpha-blocker vs Zn (25-50 mg daily)/NSAIDs daily/sitz baths 1-2 x's daily. ...Read more

Taking 4mg alprazolam daily for 2 years, elevated liver counts, court ordered stopped, and failed ua how long will it stay in my system?

Tapering needed: The court may not be realizing that Alprazolam needs to be tapered rather than stopped suddenly. The elimination half-life of Alprazolam is 15-18 hours, but may be longer if you're overweight or have liver issues. It will be in your system for 3-4 days, therefore. But you may be sensitive to reductions in concentration, and experience withdrawal symptoms unless the drug is gradually tapered. ...Read more

Antistreptolysin o ab and lft 's high with h/o strep. 1+protein in ua? Glomerulonephritis, etc. What to do next?

Strep side effects: This can simply be a side effect of the strep infection and the severity prior to treatment. With the kidney issues, it might be a good idea to meet with a nephrologist. But I would start with my primary care doctor and ask what they think is the next step. You might also consider an infectious disease doctor. ...Read more

From a Urinalysis test, a high protein count, with high (ish) numbers of squamous cells and UA hyaline casts were found. My urine has cloudy and odor.

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, squamous cells suggest contamination of urine with vaginal material and a fresh specimen should be examined. Cloudy urine that is odorous suggests an infection. Please consult your doctor for clarification. ...Read more

I just tested +for etg on a ua; I haven't had any alcohol. I have a bad bladder infection and my UA showed very high ketones. Can this cause a false +?

See below: Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) test is very sensitive and specific test and a strong indicator of alcohol ingestion within the previous 3-5 days. UTI or high ketones will not cause a false positive EtG. Unintentional exposure from certain OTC medications, personal hygiene products (e.g. mouthwash, hand sanitizers) or foods prepared or flavored with alcohol can cause a "low level" positive test. ...Read more

What do these results mean? RBC, Hemoglobin, Neutrophil %, Iron % Saturation and AB Neutrophil all low? High Lymphocyte % and trace Lymphocyte in UA.

Nothing on their own: Lab values mean nothing apart from a history and physical exam. That being said, what is most concerning is the likelihood that you are iron deficient. Even more concerning would be your feeling you have to ask us rather than your personal physician, who I hope will soon have a frank talk about your anemia and the need for a serious workup to find the cause. Your life's on the line. Be proactive. ...Read more

UTI sympt., culture neg., blood tests show high WBC & neutrophils. Meds not working. Found undiscussed UA from mths ago no sympt. W/ RBC 4-10. Worried?

Rightly so!: Worry is appropriate with cause. It should tell you, in this case, that something else is going on and needs further evaluation. Problems with other organ systems, like the GI and reproductive symptoms can cause urinary symptoms. Also some bacteria that cause urinary infections are not found on routine testing and which routine antibiotics don't help. Get checked again! ...Read more

Have low wbc 2.2 and low rbc. High mcv and rdw. UA RBC 1+ and WBC 3+ and protein H, I don not have a bladder infection. Does this indicate anything?

Maybe serious see MD: That's a very low WBC count. Combined with anemia ("low RBC"), a serious nutritional or bone marrow problem is likely, including leukemia and other cancers. The abnormal urinalysis may be an entirely separate problem but also could be serious. You need to see a doctor -- or if already in care, ask her these questions and also whether you should see a specialist. Good luck! ...Read more

Any feedback on high urinary output without excessive intake, electrolytes off in blood and 24hr urine. Also, High protein in urine, low nitrogen ua?

Nephrologist: A kidney specialist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. High urinary output out of proportion to fluid intake could be due to a pituitary gland problem, diabetes mellitus, or primary kidney disease. High protein in the urine suggests kidney damage. The nephrologist will order the appropriate tests and diagnose your problem. ...Read more

Recent abdo/pelvic MRI shows simple cyst left kidney. Could it cause: ua over 18mth high pyuria, occasional haematuria, proteinuria & infection?

Simple cyst: Simple renal cysts are relatively common. If on MRI or contrast enhanced ct or even a good ultrasound, they meet the criteria for simple cyst, there's really no reason for concern. Solitary cysts of the kidney (of this nature) are not associated with the symptoms and findings you described. ...Read more

35 female w freq urination no burning, took a ua and urine was color of grapefruit juice, no infection or blood but high ketones/protein, what is it?

Check blood sugar: Check your physician. Frequent urination could be a sign of high blood sugar (diabetes). Protein in urine could be a sign of kidney damage. Ketones build up when the body needs to break down fats and fatty acids to use as fuel. This also can happen in patients with diabetes mellitus. There are other possibilities, but you should visit a doctor for final diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

These symptoms could be signs of a urinary infection or possibly even a more serious systemic infection such as a blood infection (sepsis) which can be fatal if not treated. Any swollen lymph nodes should not be ignored especially in the breast because they could be related to systemic infection or even a cancer. ...Read more

Ua (Definition)

A ua is a urinalysis, or chemical and microscopic analysis of the urine. The standard urinalysis is performed with a dipstick test for ph, blood, protein, sugar, and ketones. In addition, a urinalysis usually includes a microscope examination to identify if the urine contains cells, "casts" (structures that indicate a problem originating in the kidney) or crystals (such as ...Read more
