Ua (Definition)

UA is also known as Urinalysis. 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

I got my urinalysis result and my mucus thread is few and amorphous urates is few what does it means and what is the best medicine for that?

Urates: Mucous threads and urates are frequent findings in the urine of otherwise healthy people and usually do not require treatment. These substances in the urine are evaluated by your doctor in context with the other lab values in the UA, your symptoms and your personal history. He/she is best to determine the significance and need for medication. Best wishes ...Read more

Please interpret my urinalysis result:Mucus threads - occassional, Bacteria - rare, amorphous phos - few. thanks?

Culture: Why was the urinalysis done?Are you on antibiotics? If not,it may be a good idea if you have symptoms to get urine culture. Amorphous phosphates in an alkaline urine(ph above 7) may indicate proreus uti. Talk to the doctor who ordered the test.Good luck. ...Read more

Normal urine study: Those results are "within normal limits". You may want to drink a little bit more water to stay well hydrated. In the Philippines I recommend coconut water also. ...Read more

My urinalysis good except; urine color:yellow.Appearane:turbid.Rbcs: 9 (normal is 3/microliter)crystals: amorphous urates abundant.Epithelial:moderate?

My urinalysis good except; urine color:yellow.Appearane:turbid.Rbcs: 9 (normal is 3/microliter)crystals: amorphous urates abundant.Epithelial:moderate?

Contaminated: The color is fine; the urates precipitating may have caused the cloudiness and really mean nothing. The epithelial cells indicate likely contamination and this makes the reds less worrisome. Is your physician concerned? The most i'd do is repeat unless there's an actual reason to worry. ...Read more

amorphous(materials):moderate bacteria:moderate. Does this urinalysis result show problems? Thank you

Probably okay...: Nowadays, urinalysis (ua) is done by computer automation reading, resulting in common erroneous report as trace or moderate bacteria. So, overall this ua is normal or unremarkable, but suggesting possible contamination, which is common in sexually active females. So, repeating ua with/without urine culture with carefully collected urine specimen as instructed is advised if deemed necessary. ...Read more
