Urinalysis And Hyaline Casts
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.
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
What does ths means, ua turbid, protein 3+, RBC 6-8, epithelial many, bact moderate, mucus thread mod, hyaline casts 2-4. I have only one kidney. Help.
Something seriously: Wrong here. Infection or kidney failure are possible. Get to a doctor immediately before you get permanent damage to your remaining kidney.
Should I be concerned? Gfr >60, vita d 17 low, ua protien 1+, urobilinogen positive h, red cells 4 h, hyaline casts 1, bacteria rare, mucus occ. Thk u
Urinalysis: 3+ bacteria, 2-4 hyaline casts, 0-5 RBC Neg for protein, ketones, bilirubin, blood, glucose. Could hyalin casts mean early kidney disease?
Kidney disease: Possibly but not likely. Please see your doctor and if possible sent me a note about how things are going.
Had UA, WBC 2-4, rbc8-10, hyaline cast4-6, fine granular cast1-3, protein 2+. No pain during urination. Creatinine 1point higher than normal. Help.?
Here are some. ..: The finding of 8-10 RBCs is significant and should be correlated with your current clinical scenario leading to testing urine so to decide how far the evaluation is needed. As to "1point higher than normal", it's unclear for making a specific comment. So, work closely with existing Doc for better pertinence and saving time and resource. Best wish. ..
What are normal levels of hemoglobin, bacteria, leukocytes, and epithelia cells? Do these effect a hyaline cast?
Abnormal urine epithelial cell large number of urine bacteria hyaline cast high & mixed flora of 3 oraganisms. What does this mean?
Contaminated specime: The urine was clearly not collected using a clean midstream catch and is contaminated with vaginal secretions. A UTI with more than a single organism is a rarity and would have to be further evaluated by experts. Disregard these results, they mean nothing.
Got results from 4mos. Ago: positive for nitrites, trace wbc (30), 2 rbc, 1sq, <1 hyaline casts what does this mean? Please interpret asap? Emergent
UTI: It means you have a uti. A short course of abx should treat it.See 2 more doctor answers
Abnormal urine epithelial cell large number of urine bacteria hyaline cast high & mixed flora of 3 oraganisms. What does this mean? How do I treat it?
Ti is probably: Not a good urine specimen and is contaminated (not a clean catch) with the large amount of epithelial cells and multiple organisms. You need a better quality specimen to be tested.
Likely normal: Hyaline cases are the most common casts seen in the urine and when found alone, usually mean normal and only indicate that the patient may have had somewhat concentrated (e.g. Not drinking enough water) urine at the time it was collected.
If urine protein (3 mnths apart) goes 2+ to 1+ but both still show WBC & hyaline casts, shows improvement & not to worry? Random? Or still a sign ckd?
Improvement: Is always good but still abnormal. Need to stay with your nephrologist
Dear all, my lab result shows hyaline cast, granular cast and mucus thrad, but my ultrasound shows all healthy. I feel pain in right kidney, and body?
What do you labs: Show? More information is need before a diagnosis or further information.
F/23yr old. I have had 2 blood&urine tests (3 mnths apart)both w/ abnormal protein, wbc, & hyaline casts. 1st protein 2+, 2nd was 1+. Egrf, creatine, b
Proteinuria: You have proteinuria (p), that can lead to other cardiovascular problems. Patients with p have more strokes, mi's and renal failure than those without it. You can take ace-i, arb's and calcium channnel blockers like Diltiazem to reduce both BP and p. You will need to have a 24 hour urine collected to measure your kidney function and quantify how much p/day you have. See your doctor for help.See 1 more doctor answer
I had a specled ana come back from the lab, also Squam Epithel, Hyaline Casts, Urobilinogen was lowand Leukocytes =1in urine. AUTOIMMUNE testing?
Rheumatologist: These urinalysis findings are nonspecific and don't denote any kidney disease. The ANA findings are also nondiagnostic and a titer would be more meaningful. A rheumatologist would be best qualified to evaluate your symptoms and recommend any further testing depending on his or her assessment.
Urine test : protein (1+), trace of blood, few bacteria, hyaline cast/lpf (0-1), mucus rare. RBC/hpf 3-4, WBC/hpf 4-6, should I be worried?
No: Even if this is not a contaminated sample, if you have no symptoms you are close enough to the reference range to consider yourself healthy.See 1 more doctor answer
Is a vitamin d deficiency a confirmation for early CKD in you have proteinuria? Along with hyaline casts &wbc in urine?
Yes they: Suggest ckd along with elevated creatinine and low GFR lower than 90. God bless u! http://www. Renal. Org/whatwedo/informationresources/ckdeguide/ckdstages. Aspx.
Wbc cast in urinalysis was 5 and the range should be less than 0. What does that mean? 28 yr female
How abnormal are these lab urinalysis result? S 25 Blood, 15 Leuks, 8-10 WBC/hpf, 5-10 RBC/hpf, 15-20 Epithelial Cells/hpf, & 'Much' Amorphous Casts/hpf
When a urinalysis and urine culture is performed do they always do a microscopic exam of the urine sample to check for casts?
Depends: Microscopic examination of urine is usually triggered by the findings of dipstick examination. If the dipstick examination does not show abnormality a microscopic examination is not usually done. Not all casts are necessarily abnormal.
