Need clarification: We need a lot more information on the type of protein, on the cell count, Cass, and other substance seen in the urine. You need to have the urine repeated, best first thing in the morning when your hydration allows a concentrated urine. You also need some blood testing to clarify and possibly further analysis. Your physician may have to send you to a nephrologist. ...Read more

Suggests some: Inflammation. This could be related to inflammation around the urethra, in the urethra or in the higher urinary tract like the bladder and above. A urinalysis without understanding what symptoms you are having is very difficult to interpret. It could be related to an infection or something else. Consider providing more history for improved guidance or just a formal HealthTap consultation. ...Read more

Here are some...: You have no UTI, but most likely you have been developing a progressive poor bladder outlet relaxation, i.e., bladder neck and prostate urethra, which commonly comes along with aging or urethral stricture, i.e., scarring narrowing of urethra distal to prostate urethra.

Nearly 2weeks ago Dr gave me 1g IM Claforan (cefotaxime) and 1g Zithromax, still burns a bit, Urine analysis today shows all ok but 1-3 H.P.F pus cells, What I ve?

Nearly 2weeks ago Dr gave me 1g IM Claforan (cefotaxime) and 1g Zithromax, still burns a bit, Urine analysis today shows all ok but 1-3 H.P.F pus cells, What I ve?

Uti: ZIthromax is not effective in treating urinary tract infections and one dose of claforan (cefotaxime) May or may not be. Three wbcs per hpf is not significant, but the important test to rule in or out a urinary tract infection is a urine culture and colony count of a clean catch specimen. ...Read more

Urinalysis done 12 times from 2009-2015. Pus Cells 02-04/HPF every time while in some RBC 02-04/HPF. I have UTI? how to find the cause?

Urethritis: 2-4 cells per high powered field isn't really a lot..though it may intuitively seem so. No bacteria seen is important as well. Any irritating factor can bring in white blood cells. You should be seen by a urologist...possible have a cycstoscopy. ...Read more

Hematuria: blood in the urine has to be fully evaluated for urinary stones, infections or tumors. Usual work up involves testing urine for infection, ultrasound examinations and a cystoscopy. In your age group, cancer is very rare, but not impossible. It is most likely cystitis, irritation or infection. Condition is treatable with antibiotics and good hydration. ...Read more

Just had a urinalysis, my results are: pus cells: tntc/hpf; red cells: 1-3/hpf; epithelial cells: +; crystals: a. Urates.. What does this mean?

UTI: Sounds like a urinary tract infection (UTI). There are other causes for having white cells however bacterial infection is most common. If you are having urinary symptoms, then it will probably require antibiotics. Urate crystals are probably secondary to this however if it doesn't clear then consider gout. ...Read more

Your question: 1-3 WBC/hpf is normal so your are probably ok as far as infection is concerned.Discomfort urinating is not necessarily due to an infection. Other causes include stricture, bladder overactivity and neurologic disorders. You should discuss your symptoms with your doctor. ...Read more
