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

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.

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

Dr. I just had my urinalysis everything came out normal except for my pus cell which indicated 1-3 HPF, I also have discomfort urinating am I sick?

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

Pretty normal: Those results seem normal if it wasn't a clean catch specimen. O-1 rbcs, amorphous urates few, 0-2 WBC. Few bacteria. Pretty unremarkable. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! Read more

Blood in urine: 16 to 18 RBC's in the urine indicates blood in the urine. Blood in the urine (unless it is menstrural blood) is not normal and should be evaluated. Possible causes include infection, stones, blood disorders, trauma and tumors. Your doctor can help sort this out. Read more

My neice had ua, pus c 6-8, epith cell 2, rbc2-4, mucus th. 3 amorph subs 2, reaction 6.0 spec. Grvity 1.020.thanks?

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

Likely normal but!: No lab result can be evaluated separate from the patient. What are your symptoms? This result can be due to improper cleaning before the specimen. If you have no symptoms have it checked again, and follow instructions for obtaining a good urine specimen without contaminants. If you do have symptoms, whatever the lab result, get evaluated. Some uti's, esp. If only in urethra, have normal ua's Read more
